Over the last several years,Dr. Odell has been working with some advanced electromedical devices which produce salutary effects for some of the most refractory pain management challenges. Treatment utilizes the Combined Electrochemical Block (CEB), which combines the clinical benefits of these Electronic Signal Treatment (EST) devices with interventional pain management techniques to produce dramatic patient outcomes in a wide variety of refractory neuropathic pain states, including low back pain, diabetic neuropathy, idiopathic neuropathy, failed spine fusion syndrome and carpal tunnel syndrome.
He served as a staff anesthesiologist at Long Beach Community Hospital and Saint Bernardine's Medical Centerin the 1980s and early 1990s, where he assisted in developing an acute pain management and OB anesthesia programs. He has been practicing pain management in the Las Vegas and Phoenixareas since 2001. He was instrumental in the development of a neurodiagnostic test used in the clinic to detect the spinal level of the pain generator in neck and low back pain. He has extensive experience with a wide variety of non-interventional and interventional acute and chronic pain management techniques, including vertebral axial decompression and electroanalgesia. Dr. Odell is a member of the International Spinal Intervention Society (ISIS), American Society of Anesthesiologists, and the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine.
