He is particularly skilled in minimally invasive procedures including neuromodulation with spinal cord stimulation and radiofrequency denervation of arthritic spinal joints. He is also accredited to perform both vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty on painful spinal compression fractures and percutaneous decompression for the treatment of lumbar disc herniations.
Dr. Wisor has published articles and lectured nationally on the diagnosis and treatment of various pain syndromes and the future of pain management for patients in the new healthcare era. He continues to train pain physicians on how to perform sophisticated pain management procedures and has served on the national advisory board of St. Jude Medical.
Dr. Douglas Wisor developed an expertise in interventional pain management using fluoroscopic (x-ray guided) diagnostic and treatment techniques early in his medical career with the United States Army, where he ultimately served as Major in the Medical Corp and Chief of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Eisenhower Army Medical Center.
Dr. Wisor, a former college quarterback, was inducted into the Dickinson College Sports Hall of Fame as a member of the 1989 football team. Today he is still an avid athlete, exchanging his football exploits for golf.
