The Spine & Pain Institute of New York offers two non-accredited pain management fellowship positions. Fellows will receive extensive didactic lecturing by our board certified pain management attendings and hands-on training on a wide variety of interventional techniques. Interventional pain procedures would range from procedures such as joint and muscle injections, epidural steroid injections, medial branch nerve blocks, radiofrequency ablations, kyphoplasty, spinal cord stimulation, and intrathecal therapies, to name a few. Extensive procedural exposure will include both spinal and non-spine related pain syndromes such as injections for different types of abdominal pain, pelvic pain, exposure to cryotherapy for peripheral nerve pain syndromes, cervical pain and headaches, and injections using PRP.
As a fellow you will be exposed to multiple busy pain management offices that run in a smooth and efficient manner. This will expose the trainee to an understanding of how to work in and run a busy, efficient pain clinic, while delivering the best possible pain management care. After a year of training a fellow should comfortably be able to transition into a busy practice post-fellowship.
The weekly lecture schedule will be based off of those of ACGME accredited pain management programs and will form the basis for your progression towards being an independent pain practitioner. Topics will include those such as medical management of pain, detailed anatomical lectures, conservative treatment options and their data, procedural outcome data, to topics such as business management, billing, marketing, and other fundamentals necessary to survive in today’s climate.
Fellows will also have the opportunity to participate in research and scientific writing. The Practice has a research coordinator and a research assistant who can help direct research interests and facilitate the process. A research project will be required for completion of the fellowship.
Applicants will be required to have completed an ACGME residency program and graduates from all specialties will be considered. Fellows will be trained in preparation for the American Board of Interventional Pain Practice (ABIPP) and/or the American Board of Pain Medicine (ABPM) exams.

I am a pain doctor in China, and Dr. Kenneth Chapman graciously gave me an opportunity to observe procedures at The Spine & Pain Institute of New York. I observed the interventional pain management techniques there for two weeks, and I am so thankful for Dr. Chapman giving me the opportunity to observe a lot of advanced techniques in pain treatment. I think it should be helpful to both my clinic and patients in China. Procedures include sympathetic blocks, cervical medial branch blocks, lumbar medial branch block, sacroiliac joint injections, epidural steroid injections, intra-articular injections and procedures to treat chronic headaches among others. All of the procedures were guided by ultrasound or radioscopy and several resources were used: radiofrequency, cool radiofrequency, multi-electrode radiofrequency, SCS— all of them performed with skillful technique in a safe way.
I’d like to thank Dr. Kenneth Chapman for the opportunity for me to observe the interventional pain management techniques at The Spine & Pain Institute of New York. During my visit, I was able to observe an average of 20 to 40 procedures per day including sympathetic blocks, lumbar medial branch block, sacroiliac joint injections, epidural steroid injections, intra-articular injections and procedures to treat chronic headache among others. The procedures were guided by ultrasound or radioscopy and several resources were used: radiofrequency, cool radiofrequency, multi-electrode radiofrequency -- all of them performed with skillful technique in a safe way.
