Back and neck pain can interrupt daily life. If you are one the millions of people plagued with neck and/or back pain you are probably more than familiar with this disruption. Often pain radiates into the leg or arm causing trouble with sleep and certain activities.

Dr. Hoppenfeld’s practice focuses on providing pain relief through non-operative injections or procedures. Injections are performed under X-ray guidance for precise localization and to provide an added measure of safety. Patients’ comfort is of upmost importance so sedation is utilized when necessary. Patients go home following the procedures and can resume their daily activity the next day.

Dr. Hoppenfeld is a graduate of the Chicago Medical School. He completed his residency training at NYU and did a fellowship in interventional Pain Management at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Beth Israel Campus in NYC. Dr. Hoppenfeld is an attending physician at both Lenox Hill Hospital and Beth Israel Medical Center. He is an educator and gives lectures on the subject of interventional pain management.
