Interventional Spine

Deven Karvelas, M.D., is board-certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation with subspecialty fellowship training in interventional spine and musculoskeletal ultrasound. Prior to beginning his medical training, he practiced as a massage therapist and yoga teacher. He specializes in the management of spine (both neck and back) and other musculoskeletal disorders.
