Dr. Michael J. O'Connell, PainCare, New Hampshire
Somersworth, NH, US
Dr. Michael J. O'Connell, PainCare, New Hampshire, has commanded nearly three decades of experience in the medical field and leverages his comprehensive understanding of pain management to administrate PainCare Centers, Inc., the largest pain treatment practice in New Hampshire. When Dr. Michael J. O'Connell founded the nascent New Hampshire practice with his partner Dr. John C. Bell in 1992, it was the first clinic and surgicenter in the region to focus solely on treating pain.
Dr. O’Connell has since expanded the practice to include twelve offices across New Hampshire and an additional Ambulatory Service Center in Merrimack. Although no longer practicing medicine, he aims to meet patients’ medical, psychological, social and holistic needs with regards to pain management, and bring these services to them, rather than having patients travel long distances.
PainCare is the leading medical practice in the northeast dedicated exclusively to pain management. PainCare is not merely a pain clinic. Our services include everything that a pain clinic provides, yet so much more. We understand that pain is more effectively treated when multiple approaches are combined. Our comprehensive pain centers not only offer interventional pain management modalities, such as injections and advanced surgical implants, but also physical therapy, counseling, alternative therapies, and medication management.
Born and raised in New Hampshire, Dr. Michael J. O'Connell, attended high school in Dover. He subsequently earned his Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry from the University of New Hampshire in Durham, NH and his Doctor of Medicine from Dartmouth Medical School in Hanover, NH.
After completing medical school, he joined the United States Army through the Health Professions Scholarship Program and fulfilled his flexible internship at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. After completing his formal internship training in Washington, Dr. O’Connell fulfilled his residency in anesthesiology at Letterman Army Medical Center in collaboration with the University of California, San Francisco. His third year of training was devoted to pain management and intensive care.
