NSPC has recently acquired one of the top pain and anesthesia practices in NJ, Premier Pain and Specialty Anesthesia Associates. This addition expands our service offering at seven convenient locations throughout New Jersey, offering NJ area residents convenient access to the most advanced diagnostic procedures and non-surgical treatments available for acute and chronic pain relief.

Patients suffering from acute or chronic pain conditions will greatly benefit, as nationally recognized pain specialists join forces with one of America’s leading practices in National Spine & Pain Centers (NSPC). Chief Medical Officer of NSPC, Dr. Les Zuckerman, states, “Premier is New Jersey’s best and largest interventional pain group. We’ve known and worked with their founders for many years, so we feel confident that they will easily dovetail into the NSPC family. Not only does Premier solidify our presence in the North East US, but their addition will open up tremendous opportunities in research & development and help attract top fellowship-trained physicians. Dr. Peter Staats, one of their leaders, is formerly past president of our largest national society (ASIPP). With his help, we foresee continued efforts to strengthen our medical field on a national scale and to continue our efforts to bring together the best doctors in the country.”

Premier Pain and Specialty Anesthesia Associates is a team of expert pain physicians, including the highly distinguished Dr. Peter Staats. Dr. Staats will be joining other national and internationally recognized doctors at NSPC such as Dr. Mayo Friedlis, Dr. Sudhir Diwan, and Dr. Sanjay Bakshi. “We are thrilled to be joining such a fantastic group of physicians and healthcare leaders at National Spine & Pain Centers. Leveraging our collective strengths, I believe we can improve patient care and significantly advance pain care in this country,” says Dr. Staats.

Premier Pain and Specialty Anesthesia Associates (SAA), established in 2000, ranks among the most comprehensive centers for the treatment of acute and chronic pain. The core team of board certified pain management specialists and anesthesiologists include Dr. Peter Staats, Dr. Scott Metzger, Dr. Michael O’Hara, Dr. John Mak, Dr. Sean Li, Dr. Kulbir Walia, Dr. Carmen Mercedes Quinones, and Dr. Maria Cubina. All providers have been trained at the most prestigious medical centers in the country and bring a breadth of clinical expertise in advanced pain management treatment modalities.

As a result of this acquisition, National Spine & Pain Centers presently offers its award-winning quality care in over 55 locations throughout Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Virginia, Washington DC and West Virginia.

Premier Pain physicians are leaders in the NJ pain management community and have received many accolades for their achievements in patient care including but not limited to: Jersey Choice Top Doctors, Castle Connolly America’s Top Doctors, NJ Top Docs, and Vitals Patients’ Choice awards, to highlight just a few of many impressive accolades over the years.

On behalf of NSPC, we are proud to offer high quality patient care from some of the very best pain doctors in the field, providing world-class care on a personal level. We are thankful for the privilege of serving you, your family, friends and local communities.
