Graduating from the University of Michigan Hospital, Dr. Gonzalez-Cota is board certified in Pain Medicine by the American Board of Medical Specialties and in Interventional Pain Practice by the World Institute of Pain Board. He has received numerous awards, including the Resident Scholar Award from the Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research. He is also a member of multiple professional societies and is the former President and CEO of the Delaware Society of Interventional Pain Physicians.
Dr. Gonzalez-Cota specializes in intractable pain syndromes, particularly reflex sympathetic dystrophy, persistent pain after spine surgery, and pelvic pain. He recommends cognitive-behavioral interventions, physical therapy, home exercise, and a nutrient-dense diet to all patients in chronic pain. If pain is intractable and the patient’s health is deteriorating, he may offer minimally invasive interventions to repair damaged tissues, regenerate cells, modulate painful neuronal signals, or to suppress inflammation directly to restore the patient’s mind and the body’s balance.
