OVERVIEW

Dr. Germanovich received his undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences and Germanic studies with honors in 2001, his master’s degree in Physiology and Biophysics in 2003 from University of Illinois and his medical degree from Midwestern University in 2008. In addition to his traditional medical education, Dr. Germanovich studied osteopathic manual treatment techniques which he currently utilizes in his practice. His anestesiology residency was completed at Advocate IMMC where he served as a chief resident, learned unique ultrasound and computed tomography – guided interventional techniques and participated in numerous studies in areas of pain medicine and anesthesiology. Dr. Germanovich completed a fellowship in interventional pain management medicine at the “Best in the West” fellowship program at the University of California Los Angeles. There he learned a wide variety of interventional techniques for the treatment of facial pain, headaches, cancer pain, neck and back pain, CRPS I and II, pancreatic pain, arthritic joint and spine pain, pain due to disorders of nerves (shingles, diabetic neuropathy, radiculopathy), muscles and vertebral compression fractures. His particular areas of interest are postural biomechanics and musculoskeletal pain due to short leg syndrome, psoas syndrome and chest wall pain due to slipped rib syndrome. He is an active member of the American Board of Anesthesiology, the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, the American Society of Regional Anesthesia, American Osteopathic Association, World Institute of Pain, and the North American Neuromodulation Society. Dr. Germanovich is very hands-on in his approach to diagnosis and treatment of pain conditions. His philosophy is that a thorough physical exam is crucial for any treatment to be successful. He uses a multi-modal treatment approach for every patient starting with supplements, therapeutic exercises, manual manipulation, and heel lifts. If basic treatments fail or are intolerable, Dr. Germanovich utilizes latest medications in combination with high-end spine, joint, muscle and nerve injections with Synvisc, steroids, Botox or stem cells. For complex clinical pain syndromes he implants spinal cord stimulation and intrathecal drug delivery systems.

"Germanovich performed a botched cervical epidural injection on my uncle and eradicated his life. He used the toxic Kenalog (banned outside of the USA), which is not to be used in epidural space, especially for the cervical spine. My uncle's blood pressure went up to dangerously 180 right after the injection. The injection left him with spinal cord injury and arachnoiditis, both are incurable and create excruciating pain for him 24/7.Not only is Germanovich medically ignorant, but he lied that he warned him of potential risks, including paralysis and death. My uncle was an aerospace engineer who would have never agreed to it had he known the risk. My uncle has consulted many doctors since. Every doctor was shocked when they saw the fluoroscope imaging from the injection performed by Germanovich. 'There is no way his needle could have accidentally missed by that much.' Germanovich took away 30 years of my uncle's life and does not even care. Do not trust this money-driven evil guy."

"A racist doctor that intentionally harms a a patient is very rare . A pain specialist that believes a non- board certified doctor’s diagnosis and obeys her order for a catastophic spinal injection without any reasoning is also very rare . Missing the spinal target twice with the wrong steroid…. VERY RARE!! Germanovich is one of them!! He destroyed my spine so badly that I cannot and will not recover. For three years I have tried every modality out there, travelled many places and spent a massive amount of money trying to undue the damage he created with his needle to my spine. This guy not only forgot his oath “ do no harm”, but he embodies human cruelty. "

"Germanovich is not a medical doctor.His misplacement of the needle during a cervical epidural was so far off that some doctors consulted think his intention was deliberate and that he should not be practicing medicine.After 2 needle attempts he still got it wrong, using the wrong amount of the wrong steroid in the wrong place, damaging my husband’s spine irreparably.The spinal cord injury he inflicted created excruciating suicidal pain to him for over two years, nine months. No doctor so far has been able to undo this damage or even reduce the pain.It is still unbearable, ongoing and very difficult for me to watch.His vision is fading. He cannot support his neck, his muscles have atrophied, feels raindrops on his skin when it’s sunny outside and more.Germanovich refuses to take responsibility for his actions and lies to cover them up.He allows himself to be bullied by other doctors. Then if things go wrong he simply changes reports and denies wrongdoing. He is a liar ."
