Allied Pain & Spine Institute (APSI) was founded by Dr. James Petros in 2013. Recognizing shortcomings of traditional pain clinics while at same time understanding the true potential of pain medicine, in his early career Dr. Petros repeatedly dismissed conformity and invitations to established pain physician groups and opted instead to focus on creating a futuristic treatment model with higher expectations for best practice. His brand of medicine (the springboard of the “Allied Movement”) would be built on one simple, powerful, but often overlooked idea: The best of pain care is witnessed when diversified, talented, and compassionate medical providers form an alliance to provide multidimensional services.

And so in 2013, the APSI standard was formally born. Since its inception, APSI has rapidly expanded from a small private office in San Jose, California to an elite, visionary, multi-center, outpatient organization in the San Francisco Bay Area.
