Dr. Jeff Pavell has a passion for helping people with pain due to spine, sports and muscle injuries, and he is a perfect fit for the PM&R Center. He has followed an interesting path to arrive at this destination. While attending The Johns Hopkins University, Dr. Pavell became interested in the relationship between the central nervous system and the musculoskeletal system. His research at Hopkins connected him with an osteopathic physician who specialized in treating sports injuries with hands on manual techniques. Dr. Pavellâ€™s enthusiasm for weight lifting and football left him ample opportunity to be treated for injuries by his mentor. He was quickly convinced, and decided to attend Osteopathic Medical School where he could combine the medical school curriculum with an education in these manual skills. Dr. Pavell graduated from the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine with honors, and went on to do his residency and Chief Residency at the New York University Medical Center's Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation and the Bellevue Hospital. He then completed a fellowship in Buffalo in the use of fluoroscopic injections for management of pain and immobility. He is also certified in acupuncture, which he uses as complementary care for his patients. At the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Center, Dr. Pavell uses the combination of manual techniques, medication, physical therapy and injection to provide optimal patient care. He also teaches students and residents at Columbia University, where he is on the teaching staff. While he awaits an Orioles World Series victory and yearns to be out surfing, Dr. Pavell has fulfilled a dream of helping people with pain from sports, spine and musculoskeletal injuries.
