David Provenzano, MD is the President of Pain Diagnostics and Interventional Care. He received his undergraduate degree from Colgate University, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude and became a Phi Beta Kappa member. He received his medical degree from the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, and completed a surgical internship at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and a residency in anesthesiology at The Western Pennsylvania Hospital. He completed a Pain Management Fellowship at the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center.
Dr. Provenzano has served as a Principal Investigator on multiple research studies and published numerous scientific articles. His research interests include neuromodulation and monopolar and bipolar radiofrequency lesioning. He has lectured at numerous international and national meetings on the management of acute and chronic pain. Further, he serves as an external member of the Robert Morris University IRB. He serves as the Treasurer on the Board of Directors of the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine, and as the Secretary of the North American Neuromodulation Society. In addition, he serves on the Educational Track Subcommittee on Pain Medicine for the American Society of Anesthesiologists. He has extensive interests and expertise in the conservative treatment of pain originating from the cervical and lumbar spine, neuromodulation, and in the utilization of ultrasound for interventional pain management procedures.
