Specialties

Dr. Maximiliano Velasco has the following 2 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Finally found the RIGHT doctor!

I started with Dr. Velasco in 2012, while living in Miami. He is the kindest, most sincere & caring doctor that I've met in decades. He was able to pinpoint my back issue & make my pain very manageable. I suffered for years until I was lucky enough to find him! I moved to Fort Myers in February & still maintain my monthly appointments. It is 5 hours round trip. Can't see myself ever looking for another pain management doctor! Would drive any distance for him! (5) STAR all the way!

Maximiliano Velasco

I was referred to Dr. Velasco in 2011. His therapy was very effective and I did not have any significant recurrence of the problem until late August 2016. Therefore, I again sought assistance from Dr. Velasco. His recent therapy has already resulted in a significant improvement.
