Lamer Tim
AAPM is THE multidisciplinary pain society. While my clinical and academic focus is in interventional spine care and neuromodulation, I am a strong believer of multidisciplinary care for patients with chronic pain and AAPM is the one professional society that puts it all together.
--Tim J. Lamer, MD, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN

I invite you to learn more about the premier non-profit professional association serving the multidisciplinary pain care team, equipping members through education, advocacy, research, and engagement.
