Scott E. Metzger, M.D. sees patients in Shrewsbury and East Brunswick, NJ offices of Premier Pain Centers, which recently joined forces with National Spine & Pain Centers. He specializes in interventional pain management and is particularly interested in addressing spinal pain in athletes. “Although pain management is a relatively new field, I love being on the cutting edge of delivering the highest quality of pain care available,” he said.
Over the course of his 25-year career in medicine, he has also practiced with Neurospinal Pain Consultants of Tinton Falls and developed clinical research and authored (or co-authored) numerous professional articles on topics related to pain management.
Dr. Metzger earned his medical degree from the Boston University School of Medicine and completed his residency and fellowship in anesthesiology and critical care medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore.
As excited as he is about advances in pain management treatments, Dr. Metzger believes there will always be a place in medicine for the traditional patient-doctor relationship. “Patient-centered care is the hallmark of my practice,” he said. “I am from the community in which I practice and am committed to providing the highest level of care to my patients as possible.”
In his free time, Dr. Metzger enjoys snowboarding, gardening and coaching soccer and basketball.
