Orthopedic practice in Mesa welcomes new spine specialist

Posted

Dr. William C. Thompson IV is now working at The CORE Institute’s orthopedic practice in Mesa.

Thompson is a double board-certified anesthesiologist and pain medicine specialist who is fellowship trained in pain medicine, according to a release.

He will focus on the diagnosis and treatment of complex spine and pain conditions in addition to spinal cord stimulation trials and radiofrequency ablations.

Thompson has been caring for patients as a pain medicine physician in Arizona for over 10 years and previously served as chief of the pain division at Valley Anesthesiology and Pain Consultants. He completed fellowship training in pain medicine at Harvard University’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. He received residency training at UCLA Medical Center, serving as chief resident. Thompson has a doctoral degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin.

“With the addition of Dr. Thompson, The CORE Institute is continuing to show our commitment to meeting the increasing demand for orthopedic and comprehensive musculoskeletal services in Arizona,” Dr. Jason Scalise of The CORE Institute said in the release. “We expect Dr. Thompson’s recognized contributions to excellent patient care, academic achievement, evidence-based medicine, and patient advocacy to continue to be extensive and will be a critical addition to our growing team.”

Thompson is an active member of the medical and public service communities. He is the vice president of the Arizona Medical Association, president of the Arizona Society of Anesthesiologists and vice president of the Arizona Society of Interventional Pain Physicians. He has served on numerous government and public health task forces, including groups formed to address the opioid epidemic.

The CORE Institute has more than 70 physicians across 19 locations in Arizona and three in Michigan. For more information about The CORE Institute and to schedule an appointment, go to thecoreinstitute.com.
