Interventional Pain Management & Anesthesiology
Dr. Andrawis is board-certified in Anesthesiology and Interventional Pain Medicine with a clinical training year in Neurosurgery. As the founder of Premier Spine & Pain Center, his practice philosophy is to offer quality care that is compassionate and cost effective through minimally invasive, interventional pain-relieving procedures as well as regenerative medicine procedures.
Dr. Andrawis recently expanded his interventional pain practice to include Regenerative Medicine including platelet-rich plasma, adult stem cell therapy and adipose mesenchymal stem cell treatments. The use of a patient’s own platelets and stem cells can help with pain and healing of injuries and degeneration of the spine, joints and tendons. These are cutting edge treatments used as an effective alternative to surgery.
Dr. Mato’s practice is focused on providing individualized care to his patients. He has years of training and experience in all interventional approaches to managing pain including the implantation of spinal cord stimulation systems and intrathecal analgesic delivery devices.
Dr. Matos has extensive experience in the field of Regenerative Medicine. He is one of the first physicians in Florida to use Platelet Rich Plasma and Bone Marrow Aspiration Concentrates for the treatment of Degenerative Spine and Joint diseases.
