Dr. Ombao specializes in interventional pain medicine and uses a comprehensive approach to pain management. He became interested in the field of interventional pain management because he values developing long term patient relationships and seeing progress in his patients. “I take great pride in helping patients resume their hobbies, enjoy family time, work and their retirement,” he said.
Prior to joining National Spine & Pain Centers, Dr. Ombao spent more than nine years working at Geisinger Health Systems both in Danville and Wilkes-Barre, PA. He was instrumental in the growth of the Geisinger South Wilkes-Barre Pain clinic into one of the leading clinics in the health system.

He then completed a residency in anesthesiology at the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY before finishing a fellowship in interventional pain medicine at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City, IA.
“I’m excited with new applications for spinal cord stimulation, peripheral nerve stimulation and dorsal root ganglion stimulation for treatment of chronic pain, ” said Dr. Ombao. “I try to create an individualized treatment for each patient and recognize that interventional pain medicine is both a science and an art.”
Dr. Ombao is a member of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and the North American Neuromodulation Society. He is fluent in English, Spanish and Tagalog.
