About

Dr. Essa Kaston offers a variety of spinal interventions ranging from epidural injections & medial branch radiofrequency ablations to central and peripheral nerve stimulators, peripheral joint, bursa injections, botox, trigger point injections, osteopathic manipulative treatments and of course, medication management.

Dr. Kaston’s approach to treatment is with a highly individualized and comprehensive approach to acute & chronic pain, to enhance quality of life.

Dr. Kaston is of Syrian heritage and first-generation born in the states. He speaks some Arabic, non-fluently. He has a wife, a daughter, and fur babies. They are the most important things in his life. He played a few months of basketball at GCU (go lopes!) before enduring a career ending knee injury. He believes that in a perfect world he would spend an equal amount of time reviewing medical images with patients, as their animal pictures.

Care philosophy

Every person I meet is different and as such, their treatments should be as well. I treat each human being with the same degree of care and respect that I'd expect my loved ones to receive from others. There is no higher privilege than to be able to alleviate another human of their suffering. My entire approach to treatment revolves around enhancing and optimizing quality of life. Pain is most commonly a result of multiple factors, and it would be a disservice to the individual I am aiming to help if we didn't address each component of their experience. Physical therapy, surgery, sleep medicine and pain psychology are just a few invaluable resources that we utilize in addition to traditional medication management and procedural interventions. By restoring someone's ability to walk their dogs, go dancing with their significant other, or pick up & play with their children or grandchildren makes all the endless studying, student debt and 30-hour call shifts worthwhile.
