Dr. Jessen Mukalel Is not your typical pain management doctor. He has a unique style crafted based on relationships he has built with his patients and their needs as well as his own challenges as a pain patient himself. Dr. Mukalel has taken the road less traveled to get him to where he is now. He is an advocate for opioid free pain management by utilizing reversible diagnostic injections to identify pain generators and predict the success of therapeutic interventional procedures. Therapeutic procedures consisting of nerve ablation, neuro-stimulation, percutaneous sacroiliac joint fusions, minimally invasive lumbar decompressions, botox injections, regenerative bone marrow stem cell therapies, and platelet rich plasma therapy and Ketamine infusion treatments. By specializing in a limited range of treatment options, Dr. Mukalel has found that he can offer close to, if not 100% pain relief, without pain medications or steroids. His promise to you is his time, respect, and attention to help you get back to being you.
