Dr. Nathan Maltezos completed advanced specialty training in Interventional Pain Medicine. He takes pride in the philosophy of treating patients as a whole with the goal of alleviating pain and restoring patients back to their original well being. His areas of interest include spinal pain, failed back surgery syndrome, neuropathic pain, cancer pain, and minimally invasive surgeries and procedures for pain relief.

Dr. Maltezos earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Physiology and Neurobiology from the University of Connecticut. He then completed medical school at Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine where he was awarded a competitive research fellowship, completing an additional year of training dedicated to medical research. After completing medical school Dr. Maltezos completed his graduate training in Anesthesiology at Albany Medical Center Hospital where he was selected as the Chief Resident during his final year of training. Dr. Maltezos then completed a rigorous fellowship in Interventional Pain Medicine at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, IL.

Dr. Maltezos became interested in pain medicine during his Anesthesia training when he helped take care of a patient who developed debilitating neuropathic pain after a severe burn injury to her leg. The patient was unable to work or perform her usual activities and did not get adequate pain relief from a variety of medications. When the patient had a spinal cord stimulator implanted she had complete relief of her pain, returned to work, and her normal function was restored.

Outside of work, Dr. Maltezos enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, cooking, physical fitness, and watching sports.
