He also completed training in Acupuncture through the UCLA Medical School, and was in the A4M Fellowship program for Hormone Replacement Therapy and Functional medicine. Dr. William Baumgartl is the former director of Stem Cell Therapies at Nevada Spine Center, where he led the Second Opinion/Consult program for Advanced Pain Diagnosis and Treatment, and specializes in treating many unusual problems. He continues to consult for Regenerative procedures at Sage Pain and Wellness in San Diego. Prior to that, Dr. Baumgartl was the previous director of Interventional Pain Management at UC Davis in California, and was an advanced instructor of interventional pain treatment techniques. Dr. Baumgartl is triple-boarded in Anesthesiology, Addiction Medicine, and Pain Medicine by the American board of Anesthesiology.
Prior to coming to Las Vegas, Dr. Baumgartl had a 20 year career in San Francisco Bay area in California, where he was known for developing innovative techniques for pain control. Following this, he moved to Las Vegas to Direct a Functional medicine program while expanding his implant pain technologies, followed by being lead implanter for pump and stimulator technologies. Using his engineering background approach for problem solving, many new treatments for unusual pain problems were developed, with great success. Dr. Baumgartl has particular expertise in the use of Botox to treat a variety of pain problems, and in implantable pump and stimulator technology. He also worked with Elan Pharmaceuticals in the development of the protocol used for trialing Prialt, the newest implanted-pump pain medication. Dr. Baumgartl has a patent pending for a new advanced arthritis treatment, the I-O Core Procedure ® which uses stem cell technologies, and has been an innovator in stem cell therapies. More than half of Dr. Baumgartl’s current work and research is using advanced regenerative and stem cell technologies to reverse degeneration and pain.
Recognizing that more than 80% of pain patients develop significant hormone/endocrine dysfunction, Dr. Baumgartl went on to receive further training in Hormone restoration and Functional Metabolic Medicine. This important new area of Pain Management focuses on how to improve how patients feel, and to restore their energy and sleep in conjunction with their pain care. This more recently augmented with the use of Peptide therapies, which further enhance the stem cell repairs and healing in the body. Adapting these technologies, Dr. Baumgartl also became certified in hyperbaric medicine, and uses stem cell techniques to heal wounds which often have been present for years. Dr. Baumgartl takes a very holistic approach to correcting both the patients physical pain problems, as well as restoring their sense of well-being. Dr. Baumgartl has extensive expertise in Endocrine and Pain Pharmacology, and in the medical management of pain. His goal is to relieve you of your pain, and to help you to finally feel normal and well again.
