Professional Statement

  • Manhattan Pain Medicine offers complete and individualized care for those with pain, injury or functional limitations.
  • We take the time needed to carefully diagnose and treat complex pain conditions such as headache, fibromyalgia, neck or back pain, or cancer pain. You will have direct access to the doctor via cell phone and email for follow-up questions.
  • We also focus on comprehensive rehabilitation, addressing complications of chronic pain, brain injury, stroke, and spinal cord injury.
  • All your care will be handled by Dr. Jason Siefferman, board certified in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation and Interventional Pain Management, and Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology, Division of Pain Medicine at New York University. Dr. Siefferman completed his training at Rush Medical College in Chicago and Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in New York and scored in the top 1% nationally on the board certification exam. In addition to Manhattan Pain Medicine, he also works in the VA Hospital system, caring for veterans with a wide range of painful conditions.
  • The goal of the initial evaluation is to determine the precise cause(s) of pain or functional impairment. Our treatments then aim to fix the source of the problem, promote healing, prevent recurrence, and restore quality of life.
  • We offer a broad range of treatment options, including medication, physical or occupational therapy, injections, lifestyle modifications, alternative medicine, and more.
  • For those who have found themselves on large doses of opioid medications, we specialize in treating pain while weaning opioids without discomfort, including the use of Suboxone┬«.
