Dr. Paul Dreyfuss has been in practice since 1992, and has always been focused on the diagnosis and treatment of spine and associated extremity pain. He has performed more than 40,000 spine interventions.
Dr. Dreyfuss has an academic orientation and has completed thirty interventional spine related research projects in addition to being an accomplished lecturer, writer and clinical teacher. He is currently a Clinical Professor with the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Washington.
My goal is to educate the patient about their condition and explain in understandable terms their treatment options, including the potential use of spine interventions. Decisions regarding various care options should be made together after the patient understands the pros and cons of each treatment.
I want to remove the stress of the treatment experience, and make sure my patients leave feeling they have been cared for in a truly genuine fashion.
I knew I wanted to be a physician at age 16. Medicine appealed to me as the perfect blend of art and science in a field which can positively impact lives. I have been blessed with a wonderful marriage for more than 25 years and have two wonderful grown children. I love living in the Northwest as I enjoy hiking, mountain biking and seeking out wonderful destinations in the mountains as a passionate wildlife and landscape photographer. My wife and I also enjoy the cultural diversity of the area and are always seeking out unique performances, festivals, music and restaurants.
In the Community
I have been very involved on a volunteer basis in several national specialty societies in regards to teaching, policy formulation, writing, research and more recently advocacy efforts. I have held multiple board and committee positions including a prior presidency of the Spine Intervention Society. I have worked over recent years with multiple societies in a collaborative fashion to provide advice to Medicare and other private carriers to help assure patient's continued access to the rationale use of spine interventions. Furthermore, in Washington State when multiple spine interventions have been at risk of not be covered procedures for state sponsored plans I organized uniform public comment, testimony and submitted scientific materials in defense of these interventions as an individual and as a representative of a national specialty society.
