Richard Balotti, M.D.

Physiatrist

Profile Overview

As someone who helps patients struggling with constant pain, Dr. Richard Balotti has seen his share of suffering. He’s often asked, “Is there a fix for my chronic pain?” And while he’d love to say, “of course,” to those he treats, he knows there is no magic cure.

Each day, his focus remains on improving the quality of care for his patients. So when he was offered a role on Laser Spine Institute’s medical team, he knew it was an ideal opportunity. “I came here because of the reputation,” he said. “I was very impressed with the way things are done here.”

With spine pain being a challenge for so many, Dr. Balotti knows his passion for helping patients manage it will be best served in a place that merges state-of-the-art facilities with patient-centered care. “The future of care for neck and back pain is here,” he said, “and I want to be a part of it.” Adding that Laser Spine Institute’s focus on the advancement of medicine is something he’s always been interested in.

When he’s not helping patients get back to doing the things they love, Dr. Balotti enjoys reading, skiing, biking, traveling and spending quality time with his family.
