Meet Dr. Zachary Fisk

Zachary Fisk, MD, MBA

Managing Director of Acute Pain Therapies

Dr. Zachary Fisk’s research, presentations and significant clinical experience managing perioperative opioid use inspired him to specialize in effective non-opiate methods for treating severe pain common to surgical procedures. He has developed techniques while caring for patients suffering from acute surgical and traumatic pain, CRPS, and the psychological pain of depression.  Identifying a need for multidisciplinary pain and physical rehabilitation services prompted him to initially open the practice Acute Pain therapies with a focus on perioperative pain control, functional status, and mental well-being.

Dr. Fisk specializes in perioperative nerve block and catheter placement, regenerative medicine for chronic pain in the region of the major joints (hip, knee, ankle, foot, hand, wrist, elbow, and shoulder) using PRP, peripheral nerve cryoablation, and peripheral neuromodulation. He provides ketamine and lidocaine infusions for chronic pain and depression, and FDA approved Esketamine Nasal Spray.
