Chronic pain can be devastating. While I was in medical training, I had the opportunity to witness the amazing impact that a physician could have on the lives of his patients by helping them reduce their pain. It was this challenging, but rewarding, aspect that led me to the field of pain medicine.
Today, I find it very rewarding working side-by-side with the exceptional team of highly specialized physicians, therapists, nurses, and staff at Orthopedic Institute to achieve the best possible outcomes for our patients.

My conversation at my appointment with Dr. Brunz was one of the best ones I ever had with a practitioner. He made me feel like I was the only patient on the appointment book that day! I would recommend him to anyone who finds themselves in the unfortunate position of needing orthopedic care.
I moved from NC to South Dakota in June, and then had to go to Florida right away to help my daughter. I called Dr. Brunz’s office and saw him the next morning! I was able to get my pain prescriptions to take with me which was a tremendous help. What wonderful care and flexibility from my new pain management doctor!
Dr. Brunz takes the time to explain everything that is happening so that you can understand. They take the time to make me comfortable with every procedure that has been done. He has done wonders for my back pain. I highly recommend him to anyone in pain.
