Wesley Foreman, M.D.Interventional Pain Management
Dr. Foreman graduated from UT Austin with a chemical engineering degree and then attended medical school at the University of Texas Medical School – Houston. He completed his residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston followed by a Pain Management Fellowship at UC Davis, Department of Anesthesia in Sacramento, California. Dr. Foreman has been an Assistant Professor of Pain Medicine and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Department of Neurology at The University of Texas Dell Medical School since 2015.
He has been selected to Austin Monthly’s Top Doctors for several consecutive years. He treats patients with a variety of pain complaints that cross the continuum from acute, and subacute cancer to chronic pain. He treats a multitude of spine complaints including back pain, neck pain, and radiculopathy (i.e., sciatica). He also treats other complex neuropathic conditions such as RSD/CRPS, post-herpetic neuralgia (i.e., shingles pain), and diabetic neuropathy. Pain is a complex experience influenced by biological, psychological, and sociological factors. Pain is an individual experience and therefore a “cookie-cutter” approach will not provide optimal results. Treatment options must be individualized for each patient, focusing not only on improvement in the patient’s report of pain but also on their functional status and quality of life.
