Kelling, M.D. graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara with a Bachelor’s of Science and a Master’s degree in the area of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology.  After working in the biotechnology field to find innovative drug therapies, Dr. Kelling decided he wanted more direct patient interaction.

Dr. Kelling has been trained to treat almost any painful condition focusing on disorders involving the spine. He specializes in a minimally invasive approach using fluoroscopy and ultrasound guided injections to treat an extensive array of painful conditions.  He takes a team approach in treating all pain conditions where a multidisciplinary, multi-modal approach is utilized
