Building positive relationships and keeping community members healthy and functioning to the best of their ability are Joseph Rozmus’s goals for his practice at the National Spine and Pain Centers Henderson office.
Starting in March 2019, the physician’s assistant brings with him 12 years of experience in the radiology/cardiology field previously working as a cardiovascular specialist and a radiology technologist at WakeMed Health & Hospitals in Raleigh. Joseph holds a master’s degree in physician assistant studies from University of North Carolina Chapel Hill and a bachelor’s degree in health science from the University of Missouri – Columbia.
Joseph can relate to his patients suffering from chronic pain through his own personal experiences since childhood. “I have always taken a proactive approach in educating myself about healthy ways to manage my pain in order to keep my body moving effectively,” he said.
Platelet Rich Plasma and stem cell therapy are two new treatments that can benefit patients. “This technology offers a more direct/localized treatment option for pain,” he said. “Options like these could help patients avoid side effects from taking too many pain medications or having to undergo surgeries.”
Joseph believes the role of medication management should be tailored to each patient. “My goal is to help patients move effectively again and keep them moving in comfort so they can complete daily activities,” he said. “Doing this in an ethical and healthy way is key to a successful outcome.”
His focus is to have an effective, two-way conversation with each patient. “I want to gain a full understanding of how they are suffering while assisting my patients in becoming an active participant in their pain management plan,” he said.
Outside of the office, Joseph can be found outdoors staying active by spending time with his family, hunting, fishing, coaching youth sports and doing yard work.
