Welcome, Dr. Paek!

Andrew A. Mendoza – Newsletter Editor

Dr. Jonathan Paek is a compassionate and enthusiastic physician who completed his interventional pain fellowship at Harvard Medical School’s Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Paek became interested in the field of chronic pain management while dealing with personal pain issues of his own in his late twenties when he developed long-standing hamstring and gluteal pain that completely prevented him from sitting down. Because of this issue, he has a big heart for patients dealing with chronic pain as he understands just how dark and helpless pain issues can make a person feel. As a result of his own experiences with chronic pain, Dr. Paek decided to study pain management at one of the most prominent hospitals in the world, Massachusetts General Hospital.

He continues to be invested in advancing the field of pain medicine. Dr. Paek has published scientific articles and book chapters in both fields of pain and anesthesiology, and he has presented over 20 lectures and at medical schools and national conferences on topics ranging from CRPS to opioid management.
