Vladimir N. Kramskiy, MD

Dr. Vladimir Kramskiy is board-certified in neurology and pain medicine. As Director of the Ambulatory Recuperative Pain Medicine Program, he uses a comprehensive approach to treat acute and chronic spine and musculoskeletal pain, neuropathic pain, headaches and complex regional pain syndromes. His clinical goal is to restore optimal physical function by developing an individualized treatment plan for his patients.

Dr. Kramskiy specializes in minimally invasive fluoroscopically guided diagnostic and therapeutic procedures of the spine, such as epidural steroid injections, facet joint injections and discography, as well as advanced interventional methods such as radiofrequency neuroablation, implanted intrathecal drug delivery systems and spinal cord stimulators. He is also skilled in botox injections for migraine pain. Dr. Kramskiy is also trained in dorsal root ganglion (DRG) stimulation, a novel treatment aimed at improving symptoms of chronic regional pain syndrome.

After earning his medical degree from Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Dr. Kramskiy completed a neurology residency at North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System and a Pain and Palliative Care fellowship at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. He then continued his training through the Tri-Institutional Pain Medicine fellowship at Weill Cornell Medical Center, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and Hospital for Special Surgery, where he served as a chief fellow.
