Neel Amin had a lot of public relations work to do when he opened American Pain Experts six years ago.
At the time oxycodone and pill mills were in the headlines and how doctors prescribed pain medication was greatly scrutinized.
“We’ve changed the reputation of pain medicine here,” Amin said. “And we’ve done that by taking a multi-disciplinary approach to treating pain.”
American Pain Experts holds board certifications in anesthesiology and pain management and prides itself on providing the most up-to-date therapies available in the Fort Lauderdale area. Amin, 41, a gay man, leads the medical team.
“The power of medicine can change lives,” Amin said. “I learned this at an early age and was fortunate to have parents that pushed medicine on us in a good way.”
Amin was voted “Most Likely To Succeed” by his graduating class at Evans High School in Augusta, Georgia. He received his bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Georgia, graduating summa cum laude, and did his pain management fellowship at the University of Washington in Seattle.
In 2009, Amin became a board certified anesthesiologist in Florida. The APEX website declares “a drop of care equals new life” and its physicians are “experts in providing the newest procedures resulting from the advances of modern technology.” In this approach, APEX offers comprehensive advanced interventional techniques, medical management, physical and mental health services and alternative therapies such as acupuncture and massage.
“We’re very good with our hands,” Amin said.
A new procedure, Amin said, involves plasma rich protein and stem cells that reduce joint paint from arthritis. The non-surgical procedure, Amin said, is an innovative way of regenerating structures in ligament injury cases.
APEX’s Fort Lauderdale location is 1164 East Oakland Park Blvd., Suite 201. For more information, call 954-678-1074 or visit www.americanpainexperts.com
