Dr. Daniel Sunwoo, MD
Interventional Pain Specialist
Dr. Daniel Sunwoo is a fellowship-trained interventional pain specialist. He is board certified in both physical medicine & rehabilitation and pain management. He received his pain management training at Georgetown University Hospital/National Rehabilitation Hospital’s Program. Prior to his pain management training, he was a member of the medical staff at National Rehabilitation Hospital in Washington, DC.
Dr. Sunwoo believes in conservative management whenever possible for patients. He is trained in interventional pain procedures that are useful for cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine conditions. He is also experienced in treating many other painful musculoskeletal conditions including shoulders, hips and knees. He likes to incorporate physical therapy as part of a treatment program.
He believes physical therapy is not only useful for many conditions but also provides the education and training needed for patients once therapy is completed. Dr. Sunwoo works closely with his spine surgery colleagues. He performs diagnostic interventional procedures including pain mapping and electrodiagnostic (EMG/NCS) testing. Both of which can offer useful information when trying to localize the etiology of a painful spine condition. Dr. Sunwoo believes the well-being of the patient is the utmost priority. Providing courteous and compassionate care can go a long way in making patients feel comfortable, and is a dedicated member of the Texas Medical Association and Dallas County Medical Society.
