About / My Philosophy
As a physiatrist, Dr. Michael Baskin specializes in diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of pain-related spinal disorders. He is board-certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R), as well as interventional pain management since 2004. He uses his comprehensive spine and musculoskeletal training to determine the appropriate line of treatment for a variety of spinal conditions. Specializing in interventional spine treatments, he offers fluoroscopic spinal injections to eliminate spine-related pain and restore normal activities and function.
Dr. Michael Baskin has been in practice for more than 13 years and ran a very busy academic practice at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, where he was head of the international spine/pain program while maintaining his academic appointment as an associate professor at Florida international University School of Medicine. Dr. Baskin has performed tens of thousands of spinal procedures to help patients recover from back and neck pain and get back to their favorite activities. His practice serves as a referral center for general and complex non-surgical spinal problems in the region.
Following his residency training in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, he completed additional training in interventional spine and pain procedures, making him an expert in cervical, thoracic and lumbar procedures as well as a leading expert in advanced neuromodulation, neurotomy, discography and intradiscal procedures. He is an expert in treating thoracic and lumbar compression fractures. He performs kyphoplasty procedures right here in our in-office procedure suite.
Dr. Baskin also provides care of non-spinal musculoskeletal disorders, such as hip, shoulder, and elbow pain, as well as postoperative total knee arthroplasty pain.
