Portland Pain & Spine Logo

Portland Pain & Spine was founded on the principle that the body contains the necessary substances needed to accelerate your healing and health. We integrate stem cell research, evidence-based medicine, and wellness practices that address chronic pain, nourish whole body health, and sustain a happier lifestyle.

Our team at Portland Pain & Spine is foremost concerned with providing the best possible outcomes and exceeding the expectations of our patients. We tailor our patients’ therapies to their specific needs and provide the best-suited treatment that eliminates pain rather than relies on medication or pain management practices.  Please contact us today to book an appointment, and see firsthand the cutting-edge and individualized care we provide at Portland Pain & Spine.  

We currently accept all major commercial insurance, as well as Medicare, MVA, and Workers Compensation. Regenerative medicine therapies are not covered by insurance and require payment at the time of service; some therapies may be covered by your HSA account.

Feel free to ask us about other insurances.

At Portland Pain & Spine, we currently cannot meet the demand for medication management and request that patients looking solely for this service seek treatment with other qualified providers.

Dr. Balog, Thank you SO much! Superheros like you are few and far between. Thank you for taking my pain away!

Request An Appointment

We want to assure our patients that Portland Pain and Spine remains open and actively managing your pain. Medication management is given the highest priority. Our relocation across the hall in the Washington building is complete but requires office renovation before we can accommodate patient visits. Staffing shortages affected our ability to communicate last month, however, this was temporary. Dr. Balog has reached out to all patients but asks that if anyone has additional questions or concerns to contact him at balog@pdxpainandspine.com.
We have updated our phone messaging system to assist with calls. There are now options to speak with a live receptionist, leave messages or speak with our new billing company. Medical record requests can be processed on our website at www.pdxpainandspine.com and are handled by Morgan Records Management. Thank you for your patience during this transition. We look forward to providing you high-quality care as we enter into 2024! 

Wishing you all a joyful holiday season.
