Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist is a multi-hospital academic health system.  The fellows rotate at our outpatient Pain and Spine Centers in Winston-Salem, Clemmons, High Point, Greensboro and Lexington.  These facilities all have in office fluoroscopy suites for basic and advanced pain and spine interventional therapies.  In addition, we implant spinal cord stimulators, peripheral nerve stimulators, interspinous spacers, intrathecal pumps and perform kyphoplasties, sacroplasties and RF tumor ablation in the operating rooms in our ASCs and other Outpatient OR facilities
