Dr. Rick Nieves-Ramos

Dr. Ramos returned to the Central Florida area after having worked in a very busy practice in San Diego, Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, and Beverly Hills. Well rooted in his family values and proud of his Florida native roots, Dr. Ramos returns home to Orlando with his wife and two young children to be closer to his family and his wife’s family.

Dr. Ramos received his Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biology at UCF. He then completed his medical school training at The Ohio State University, where his interest in Pain Medicine began. There, he developed training protocols for the Anesthesiology department residency program. At the University of Miami he worked with world-renowned experts in lower back pain therapy and technique innovators, and trained in innovative technology for the treatment of neuropathic pain.

Dr. Ramos then moved to the west coast where he worked as an attending Anesthesiologist at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills, California. He completed an ACGME (American College of Graduate Medical Education) accredited fellowship in Pain Medicine at Cedars Sinai Medical Center, where he was involved with several research studies involving interventional procedures for chronic migraine and post-operative pain. He has also developed treatment plans for rare painful conditions afflicting athletes and performing artists.

Other interests include the field of orthobiologics, also known as regenerative medicine. He has presented at National conferences for the North American Neuromodulation Society and for the American Society of Anesthesiology on implantable intrathecal drug delivery placement, and has participated in national round table presentations for new product development of Spinal Cord stimulation devices. He has developed and taught many practitioners new techniques in the field of neuromodulation for pain control.

Dr. Ramos was honored to be recognized as one of “Orlando’s Top Doctors of the Year” by Orlando Style Magazine, and appeared in a televised interview on WFTV Orlando News.

Dr. Ramos uses a multi-modal treatment approach for every patient, starting with supplements, therapeutic exercises and evidence-based complementary medicine. If basic treatments fail or are intolerable, Dr. Ramos utilizes the latest medications in combination with high-end spine, joint, muscle and nerve injections including steroid, non-steroidal anti inflammatories, Botox, or Joint Viscosupplementation.

For complex clinical pain syndromes, Dr. Ramos implants spinal cord stimulation and intrathecal drug delivery systems. While he is experienced with all-new cutting-edge innovative treatments and devices, he is both Board Certified in Anesthesiology and Subspecialty Certified in Interventional Pain Medicine.

Rest assured that when being treated by Dr. Ramos, his personable bedside manner blended with his knowledge and expertise will ensure you get the best care you deserve.
