Performance Pain & Sports Medicine is a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary practice focusing on outpatient treatment of musculoskeletal and pain conditions. We are affiliated with Performance Spine & Sports Medicine who has offered musculoskeletal / interventional spine fellowship positions since 2011. Dr. Wiederholz has joined with Dr. Suzanne Manzi to provide residents a private practice fellowship experience in Houston, TX. Not only will the fellow become adept at performing all the various pain procedures, but the private practice setting is quite conducive to learning the business of medicine.
We do not cover any sports teams and are not affiliated with a residency program, but do anticipate residents from Baylor and UT rotating at our facility.
Research is highly encouraged and mentoring will be provided.
Procedures Taught: We have a very busy practice and perform a myriad of pain and MSK procedures. Dr. Manzi is board-certified in electrodiagnostic medicine, so the fellow will gain invaluable experience performing EMG studies. Both Dr. Wiederholz and Dr. Manzi are fellowship-trained in interventional pain management and perform many procedures both in the office and at various facilities around Houston. The fellow will get experience in all spinal injections and have exposure to minimally-invasive spine surgeries through Dr. Wiederholz. Performance is also one of the busiest practices in Houston performing neuromodulation, so the fellow will gain enough experience with neuromodulation to be very comfortable placing trial leads. Musculoskeletal ultrasound is also performed at Performance. The fellow will spend time with Dr. Wiederholz learning both diagnostic MSK ultrasound and utilizing ultrasound for image-guidance during procedures.
Program Directors: Matthias Wiederholz, M.D. and Suzanne Manzi, M.D.
