We Don't Manage Pain. We Treat it!

Founded in 2001, by co-founders Dr. Joseph T. Alvarez and Dr. Eduardo A. Garcia, Space City Pain Specialists are here to help identify the source of chronic pain in order to plan the most effective pain treatment modalities, including injection procedures, advanced interventional techniques, mental health counseling, and multidisciplinary coordination. Dr. Alvarez and Dr. Garcia were later joined by Dr. S. Jeffrey Cannella, which led to the expansion of the Space City Pain Specialists along with further growth.
