About Dr. Thomas

Dr. Kendrick Thomas has a unique perspective of pain management in that he was a patient before becoming a physician. As a teenager, he underwent two spinal surgeries that lead to progressive and severe low back pain in his late 20's. He sought and found relief from his pain with some of the same interventional techniques that he uses today in his practice. The pain relief that he experienced was so profound and life-changing that he decided to become a pain physician.

He completed his Anesthesiology residency at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences where he received specialized training in regional anesthesia and pain medicine. He was awarded the Mon P. Winnie award for Excellence in Pain Medicine.

After residency, he returned to Arizona for additional fellowship training in Interventional Pain Management with Arizona Pain Specialists where he was trained in the latest advanced interventional techniques.

He is passionate about helping his patients return to and maintain an active lifestyle. Dr. Thomas treats a wide variety of painful conditions including spine and joint pain, abdominal and pelvic, neuropathic pain.
