    Hey all,

    There does not seem to be much salary info for PM&R docs who have completed an interventional Spine fellowship. I have heard numbers between $250kish to $1million? -ish per year.

    Anybody here with any hard numbers or wish to add to the rumors?! ;-)

    I know there are a number of future PM&R docs on here, please do tell what you know.

    thanks!

    Interventional physiatrists use a variety spine injection techniques and methods to relieve pain and improve musculoskeletal functioning. Some have added training in implantable technologies (baclofen pumps, dorsal column stimulators, etc). Such training requires substantial fellowship training beyond residency (usually at least two years).

    Organizations on the web that detail interventional physiatry include:

    North American Spine Society
    http://www.spine.org/

    International Spinal Injection Society
    http://www.spinalinjection.com/ISIS/

    PASSOR (Physiatric Association of Spine, Sports and Occupational Rehabilitation)

    http://www.aapmr.org/passor.htm

    The salary range for PM&R docs in general is usually considered a little better than average primary care salaries ($120-150K). Depending upon your payor mix salaries could be higher. Interventionalists usually make considerably more (upwards of $200K) but assume much more malpractice risk and liability.
