Aaron McPeek, D.O., is a native of NJ. He received his undergraduate education at Rutgers University. After completion of college, he received a master’s degree and began his career as an Anesthesiologist Assistant. He then returned to medical school and received his medical degree from Rowan University in NJ.
He completed his residency in Anesthesiology at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. He then completed fellowship training in Chronic pain management at Thomas Jefferson. Dr. McPeek is trained in a wide array of interventional pain management procedures to help alleviate patient’s pain and improve their quality of life. He also specializes in medical management of chronic pain with a focus on non-opioid pain management.
Dr. McPeek was guided to become a doctor through his own experience with pain due to a sports injury that required 2 corrective surgeries. After being in pain for months following his injury, he came to the realization and found renewed appreciation in how important it is to feel good each day, and how detrimental pain can be to our quality of life. He says, “This was what sparked my initial interest in medicine and pain management. Having gone through this experience, I believe it made me much more empathetic towards people who have to live with debilitating chronic pain conditions.” Regaining his quality of life after pain allowed him to get back to his active lifestyle. He is an avid hiker, golfer, and is looking forward to enjoying the water sports and activities of the Chesapeake Bay in Southern Maryland.
Dr. McPeek brings his multidisciplinary philosophy and experience in unique treatment techniques, such as Nerve Blocks, Radio Frequency Ablation, and Neuromodulation. He says, “I believe in treating the whole patient with special attention to the impact pain can have on their quality of life and mental health. I believe in using medications if indicated but trying to avoid over-prescribing of medications. I like to use a team approach when working with patients to treat their pain. It is a partnership with the patient, and I enjoy working with them to reach their quality of life and activity goals.”
