Dr. Glenn Lipton received his medical degree from the University of Louisville School of Medicine in Kentucky. He went on to an internship at Washington Hospital Center in Washington, DC, and a Residency at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital in Florida. Dr. Lipton then completed a prestigious, ACGME-accredited Fellowship in Interventional Pain Management at the University of Kentucky in Lexington in the Division of Pain Medicine.
Dr. Lipton is board certified in Pain Medicine under the American Board of Anesthesiology, the gold-standard credential for pain medicine because it is the only pain certification under the auspices of the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). In addition, Dr. Lipton holds further certifications from the American Board of Interventional Pain Physicians (ABIPP) and the American Board for Pain Medicine (ABPM). Dr. Lipton served as an ABIPP board examiner, lectures and instructs other physicians around the country on new surgical techniques, and keeps his knowledge and skill set current by holding active memberships in over eight of the national pain societies.
For more than 20 years, Dr. Lipton has focused his practice on the evaluation and treatment of chronic pain disorders. This involves the use of thorough medical history evaluations, physical examinations, and utilization of sophisticated diagnostic testing. Treatment plans are then developed, emphasizing the least invasive modalities. These include the use of non-narcotic medications, and referrals for physical therapy, acupuncture, and chiropractic treatments. As a specialist in interventional techniques, Dr. Lipton can provide a variety of injections, procedures, and surgical options if needed. These include everything from trigger point and epidural injections to the most advanced treatments such as spinal cord stimulators, and mild (Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression). Dr. Lipton embraces cutting-edge treatments that are medically sound and scientifically proven. As part of his commitment to education, Dr. Lipton travels the country to instruct elite pain management physicians. This includes teaching the latest theories in the use of medications (such as Lyrica) and advanced interventional techniques (including mild). Performing thousands of successful interventional procedures each year, Dr. Lipton brings a unique combination of formal training and practice experience to help patients work towards a pain-free life.
