Dr. Avraham: People suffering from pain shouldn’t have to travel far to find relief

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (November 1, 2022) — University Orthopedics, one of the region’s largest, most comprehensive orthopedic practices, is thrilled to announce the addition of board-certified physical medicine & rehabilitation physician Dr. Ron Avraham, who will be seeing patients at the practice’s Massachusetts locations in Plymouth and Raynham.

“People suffering from pain shouldn’t have to travel into Providence or Boston to find relief. With the addition of Dr. Avraham, University Orthopedics stays true to its mission of providing comprehensive, cutting-edge care that’s not only world-class but also convenient,” said Edward Akelman, M.D., President of University Orthopedics. “Dr. Avraham, who is fellowship-trained in pain intervention, excels in the use of minimally invasive, maximally effective interventional procedures and shares our commitment to superior patient outcomes.”

While specializing primarily in spinal conditions, Dr. Avraham treats all types of pain. He has comprehensive training and experience performing a number of fluoroscopically-guided spine procedures such as nerve blocks, radiofrequency ablations, and epidural steroid injections to manage and treat neck and low back pain. In addition, he is trained and proficient in the use of ultrasound imaging for musculoskeletal injections including peripheral joints, peripheral nerve blocks, and myofascial and tendon injections including the use of regenerative medicine therapies such as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate Stem Cells (BMAC).

“Employing a patient-centered and multi-modal approach, I strive to help my patients achieve the best quality of life and the highest level of function,” Dr. Avraham said. “By focusing on the use of conservative treatment options when possible, including minimally invasive interventional procedures, therapies, and medications, it’s always my goal to provide patients with the best possible outcomes. I am thrilled to be joining a practice that shares the same dedication to the customized treatment of each  individual patient.”

Dr. Avraham completed a fellowship training in Interventional Pain at Arizona Pain Treatment Centers in Phoenix, AZ. Prior to that, he received his medical degree from Rutgers New Jersey Medical School in Newark, NJ, then completed his internship in Internal Medicine at Flushing Hospital in Queens, NY, before pursuing residency training in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) at Temple University/Moss Rehab in Philadelphia, PA.
