James Patrick Robinson, M.D.
Dr. Robinson is a UW clinical professor of rehabilitation medicine. He sees patients at the UW Medicine Center for Pain Relief and the Bone and Joint Surgery Center.
His clinical interests include the evaluation and conservative treatment of spine conditions and the treatment of fibromyalgia. His research interests include the rehabilitative treatment of fibromyalgia, and attitudes and decision-making strategies among patients regarding chronic opioid therapy.
I believe in a rehabilitative approach to chronic pain. Key elements of this are empowering patients to optimize self-management of chronic pain disorders and encouraging them to take as much responsibility for self-management as is feasible.
At the Bone and Joint Surgery Center, he evaluates and treats patients with a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. At the Center for Pain Relief, he sees patients with a wide variety of refractory pain disorders, primarily as a consultant.
