Interventional Pain Management Update for Kenai, Nikiski, Soldotna, Sterling, and Kasilof

Andrea Trescot, MD, Interventional Pain physician practicing with MediCenter’s Specialty Clinic has been recognized by the World Institute of Pain(WIP) as a Certified Interventional Pain Sonologist (CIPS). This designation has been earned by less than 20 interventional pain physicians in the world and represents an exceptional level of competence in ultrasound guided interventions including injections, nerve ablations and regenerative medicine techniques.

The CIPS is awarded to physicians who undergo a rigorous examination that includes successfully diagnosing complex pain syndromes and demonstrating appropriate interventions in a cadaver lab under the critical eye of the WIP’s most accomplished practitioner/examiners.

Dr. Trescot has practiced in Alaska for the past 5 years and is currently the President of the Alaska Society of Interventional Pain Physicians. She has been a professor and pain fellowship director at the University of Washington and the University of Florida and has served as the President of the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, the Florida Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, the Florida Academy of Pain Medicine and has been a board member of the World Institute of Pain. Her recently published medical textbook ‘Peripheral Nerve Entrapments: Clinical Diagnosis and Management’ (Springer) has received critical acclaim and rounds out her over 200 peer reviewed publications.
