Portland Pain & Spine Logo

Portland Pain & Spine was founded on the principal 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.

From the moment we walked in we were treated with courtesy, Everyone listened to us, were incredibly helpful and understanding and gave us options we have been looking for many years. We highly, highly recommend Dr. Balog and his wonderful staff. Thank you for giving my husband back his life! We are forever grateful.

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.
