Biography

As an anesthesiologist, Andrew M. Mendelson, DO, specializes in chronic neck pain, pain management, and balloon kyphoplasty, a minimally invasive treatment for spinal compression fractures.

His clinical interests are:

  • Cancer pain
  • Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
  • Neuromodulation

A native of Central New Jersey, Dr. Mendelson decided to pursue a career in medicine after experiencing a sports injury at a young age. During his clinical rotations in medical school, he was drawn to the field of pain medicine, believing he could make a difference in patients’ lives.

Dr. Mendelson believes developing an individualized treatment plan for each patient delivers the best results.

“By using a multidisciplinary approach, my goal is to improve each patient’s quality of life,” Dr. Mendelson says. “I am trained in using minimally invasive spinal procedures and other leading-edge therapies to give patients the best outcomes.”

A graduate of The Pennsylvania State University, Dr. Mendelson earned his medical degree at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed his residency in anesthesiology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. He went on to complete a fellowship in pain medicine at the Tri-Institutional Pain Fellowship in New York City, a joint training program between New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Hospital for Special Surgery.

A self-described foodie, Dr. Mendelson enjoys trying new restaurants around the Charlottesville area and traveling.
