Dr. Fanaee listens carefully to each individual's needs and educates his patients about their conditions and treatment options. He strongly believes that patients should feel comfortable asking questions and forming a partnership with him during pain management consultation.

He strives to help each patient to enjoy their life to the fullest and works hard to ensure they achieve their goals. In addition to performing joint, spine, and soft tissue injections, Dr. Fanaee also utilizes advanced techniques such as kyphoplasty, spinal cord stimulation, ultrasound-guided nerve blocks, and radiofrequency neurolysis when necessary.
