Dr. Jason Brajer is board certified in anesthesiology and pain management. He completed his Medical Doctorate in 1980 from Hahnemann University [now Drexel University]. Although he is a born and raised in New York City [don’t hold it against him], after receiving his BA degree from Johns Hopkins University, he moved to Philadelphia. This turned out to be a smart move – he met his wife of 30 years here.
Dr. Brajer has been in clinical practice for more than 25 years. Early in his career he was in a hospital practice splitting his time between providing anesthesia services in the operating room and pain management. For the previous 14 years he was on staff at Montgomery Hospital in Norristown PA. He served as the founding Director of the Montgomery Pain Center. He was also the Vice Chairman of the Department of Anesthesiology and the Medical Director of the Frank J. Tornetta School of Nurse Anesthesia.
Dr. Brajer joined Grossinger NeuroPain Specialists in 2008. He is the third “brother”, but from another mother, and father. With his guidance we have greatly expanded the pain management services of our practice. We now do virtually all the currently approved and accepted pain management injections and procedures on the entire spine. We do the basic epidural steroid and facet injections, to sympathetic blocks and spinal cord stimulator trials. We do injections for herniated discs to arthritis to the complicated RSD / CRPS.
Summer for the Brajer clan of 5 involves weekends at the Jersey shore. They are all beach bums. The sun, a detective fiction book, and body surfing through the waves make for the perfect summer day. In his spare time, Dr. Brajer is a sports junkie. He is an avid fan of all the major Philadelphia sports teams [yes he converted his allegiance]. Ice hockey is his first love, only recently stopped playing. He still plays singles tennis every week and some golf. Throwing a baseball around on the beach is a must.
Dr. Brajer is also a patient of the practice as well. He has herniated discs in his neck and back. Not only has he given over 10,000 spinal injections in his career, he has been on the receiving end as well. He is proof that staying in shape, good diet and routine exercise can allow one to function normally despite back and neck issues. He has even developed his own 10 point weight loss plan that have helped many patients lose anywhere from 25 to 50 pounds (Coming Soon).
