Dr. Christopher Roberts, Pain Management Physician

“I established JAX Spine & Pain Centers in 1999, with the goal of creating a patient centric interventional spine center. I’m extremely proud of the high level of care we provide to our patients and the diverse experience of our pain intervention specialists. We are always expanding our services, our techniques and our technologies to ensure that our patients have the most progressive procedures and attentive care as possible.”

Dr. Roberts, MD, believes in individualized treatment plans to make the most effective, well-informed treatment decisions. He finds his job most rewarding when seeing his patients regain their quality of life and thrive in the community.

Dr. Roberts was the first physician in North Florida to perform Intradiscal Electrothermal Therapy (IDET), a minimally invasive treatment for spinal disc related chronic low back pain. He currently serves as an educational author, speaker and clinical instructor of implantation workshops for Medtronic, Inc., one of the leading manufacturers of spinal cord stimulators.
