About Dr. Peter Abaci

About Dr. Peter Abaci

I don’t think anybody grows up saying ‘I want to be a pain doctor.’ I doubt many go to medical school with the goal of spending their careers sitting in front of people each day who suffer from chronic pain. Yet, somehow, I wandered upon that journey, presumably willfully. Why would I do that? Sometimes I wonder that myself.

Peter Abaci, MD P eter Abaci, MD, is certified in anesthesia and pain management by the American Board of Anesthesiology. He serves as the Medical Director of the nationally recognized Bay Area Pain and Wellness Center, located in Los Gatos, California, which he cofounded with Dr. John Massey. Dr. Abaci received his bachelor’s degree and graduated magna cum laude from UC San Diego, attended medical school at the University of Southern California, and performed his specialty training in pain management at UC San Francisco. A widely respected expert on chronic pain management and a highly successful chronic pain sufferer, he is the author of Take Charge of Your Chronic Pain: The Latest Research, Cutting-Edge Tools, and Alternative Treatments for Feeling Better. Dr. Abaci also serves as an expert and weekly contributor for the Chronic Pain Community on WebMD. Dr. Abaci began his quest to radically change conventional chronic pain thinking and treatment after dealing with the agony of his second anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear. His mission is to help transform the way medicine treats pain and to restore hope for healing and optimum long-term health. Dr. Abaci focuses on developing alternative solutions to treating chronic pain by drawing on neuroscience research, evidence-based medicine, ancient healing remedies, stress management techniques, nutrition principles, exercise programs, art therapy, and real-life lessons.

Epidural Cortisone Shots: Yea or Nay?
Epidural steroid injections have become one of the most commonly used pain treatments in modern medicine. In the U.S., we perform an estimated 10-11 million of these procedures each year, with about 20 percent of those coming in the more elderly Medicare population. In fact, I would say that this very procedure is what helped launched the specialty of pain management, also referred to as pain medicine, some 30+ years ago. You see, anesthesiologists are trained on how to position special needles within the epidural space of the spinal canal in order to anesthetize the body for surgery or to treat labor pain. There is a special technique required to perform epidural blocks appropriately, and using this procedure to deliver medications like corticosteroids (cortisone) to alleviate spinal pain was one of the first treatments developed to treat pain as an entity or a disease, as opposed to a symptom. As a result, the subspecialty of pain management grew out of the practice of anesthesia, with a strong emphasis on being able to perform procedures that could effectively treat pain. Despite the history surrounding spinal....... Read More
