Ann Marie Munoz, M.D., sees patients at National Spine & Pain Centers Dunn, Fayetteville and Lumberton, NC offices where she employs her extensive knowledge in the specialties of pain management and anesthesiology to help patients address their chronic and acute pain through a variety of treatment therapies and minimally invasive interventional procedures.
Dr. Munoz began her medical career in her native country of Argentina before moving to the United States, where she has worked in numerous hospitals and pain practices. In addition to serving as the director of the lnterventional Pain Center at Rhode Island Hospital, she has also held the position of assistant professor in the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Vermont and clinical assistant professor of surgery (anesthesiology) at the Brown University Alpert Medical School.
“I am very excited about new treatments that are becoming available for the treatment of chronic pain, including stem cell therapy and platelet rich plasma therapy,” she said. “These interventions and others allow us to target the cause of pain as specifically as possible so that we can achieve better outcomes.”
Dr. Munoz earned her medical degree from Universidad Nacional de Cordoba in Cordoba, Argentina and performed her residency in anesthesiology at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, SC. She then completed a fellowship in pain medicine at the University of Iowa in Iowa City, IA.
“Patients who are suffering with pain need to be treated with dignity, courtesy and respect,” Dr. Munoz said. “They should feel free to express their frustrations, their fears and their hopes with me. My goal is to provide the same care for each patient that I would desire for my own family.”
Dr. Munoz is fluent in Spanish and has served as a volunteer anesthesiologist for an Esperanca Medical Mission to Bolivia. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, cooking, writing and going to barbeques.
