A qualified, capable doctor is the key to a successful treatment, and we are lucky to have two industry leaders at the San Antonio Westover Hills Pain Clinic. Dr. Dennis E. Karasek has 29 years of experience in medicine, 20 of which are exclusively in interventional pain medicine. His skill in fluoroscopically-guided injections and other spinal procedures has made him a sought-after teacher of doctors. Dr. Karasek’s medical emphasis is on interventional pain management specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of spinal pain syndromes.
Dr. Karasek’s experience and focus is complemented by the training and expertise of Dr. Sergio J. Alvarado. Dr. Alvarado is a bilingual interventional pain management specialist who is fellowship-trained and board-certified. He was a practicing pharmacist for five years and was also a part of the faculty of the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, training other physicians to correctly perform invasive procedures to alleviate pain.
Dr. Karasek and Dr. Alvarado are dedicated to creating a comprehensive treatment plan for each patient. This goal is supported by a fully-equipped pain clinic that includes a fluoroscopy suite, diagnostics lab, and on-site pharmacy.
Whether your pain is episodic due to an injury or chronic with an unknown cause, at San Antonio Westover Hills Pain Clinic, we believe that patient education is a crucial part of your treatment. Dr. Karasek, Dr. Alvarado, and the whole staff at San Antonio Westover Hills Pain Clinic work hard to make sure you understand all of your treatment options. It is important to us that you are able to make informed, empowered decisions regarding your health. We believe that you don’t have to live in pain, and our staff will do everything we can to make sure you can get back to the life you loved before pain.
