  • Fluoroscopy suite with Super C-Arm
  • EMG Machine
  • Ultrasound
  • New exam rooms with computer-EMR access in each room
  • On-site PT with golf simulator

There are 2 to 3 fellowship positions each academic year.

Why Wake Forest?

Dr. O’Brien has had an interventional fellowship for over 20 years with approximately 40 fellow graduates. The fellowship has a large and diverse volume of procedures, and fellows typically perform well over 1,000 procedures. Although a majority of procedures are spinal injections/procedures, there are numerous peripheral joint injections/arthrograms that are taught in addition to regenerative medicine and ultrasound-guided procedures.  EMG and NCS tests are also routinely performed at our clinic.

Wake Forest University School of Medicine is an internationally recognized academic medical center with roots dating back to 1922.
