(Spin Digit Editorial):- New York City, Dec 3, 2020 (Issuewire.com) – A top specialist in the field of pain management, Dr. Averna is a part of the team of professionals at New Mexico Orthopaedic Associates, P.C. 

New Mexico Orthopaedic Associates, P.C. has been serving patients in the Albuquerque-Metro area for over 35 years. Orthopaedic, sports medicine, and spine care physicians work together in New Mexico’s only medical practice that offers diagnosis, treatment, surgery, and rehabilitation all within one practice. Their mission is to provide exceptional care for every patient, every day.

“The most rewarding part of my day is knowing I’ve done my absolute best for my patients-I lie awake at night if I don’t give 100%. I am a very lucky man to have others entrust me for their care. Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is all about restoring function and allowing patients to live their best life possible-I am extremely blessed to be in a position to help others along their journeys in life” expressed Dr. Averna.

Among his professional affiliations, he is a member of the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, the Spine Intervention Society, the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, and the North American Neuromodulation Society. In addition, he is affiliated with Presbyterian Hospital and New Mexico Surgery Center.

Graduating summa cum laude honors from the University of New Mexico, Dr. Averna went on to earn his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2012. He then performed his residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at Temple University Hospital / Moss Rehabilitation, where he served as chief resident. During his training, he won the Margo And Daniel Polett Humanitarian Resident Award & the Resident of the Year Award. Finally, he completed his fellowship in interventional pain medicine at the University of New Mexico Hospital.

Priding himself on staying up to date in his field, he is board-certified in pain medicine & physical medicine and rehabilitation by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (ABPMR). The mission of the ABPMR is to serve the public by improving the quality of patient care in physical medicine and rehabilitation. This is accomplished through a process of certification and maintenance of certification that fosters excellence and encourages continuous learning.

Genuinely caring about all of his patients, Dr. Averna treats them like family. He had his first spine surgery at 17 years old and then required two additional surgeries. The surgeries gave him first-hand experience as a patient, so he knows what it is like to live in chronic pain, navigate the complicated medical system, go through diagnostic testing / work-ups, and rehabilitate through major surgeries. He has been very fortunate, as these life events have shaped him into a physician who can truly empathize with his patients.

“Thus, I spend every minute I have available with my patients, explaining their spine (musculoskeletal) issues in easy-to-understand ways, go through all imaging in detail with the patient (best way for one to feel “ownership” of what’s going on with your body), and devise a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan (not a cookie cutter approach)” stated Dr. Averna.

Pain management is a branch of medicine employing an interdisciplinary approach for easing the suffering and improving the quality of life of those living with chronic pain. A pain management specialist is a doctor who specializes in pain medicine, focusing on the evaluation, treatment, and prevention of pain.

In 2016, Dr. Averna returned to New Mexico with his beautiful wife to raise their three young children in the Land of Enchantment. He is forever grateful to be back to serve the people of New Mexico. He loves listening to music, being outdoors, spending time with his family, and geeking out on automobiles.
