Dr. Balog is a pain management physician & anesthesiologist who has over 20 years of experience in the medical field and has gained a reputation as a steadfast patient advocate and innovative care provider. He currently practices at BALOG Regenerative in Tigard, Oregon. BALOG Regenerative was founded on the principal that the body contains the necessary substances needed to accelerate healing and health. With this wealth of knowledge, Dr. Balog integrates stem cell research, evidence-based medicine, and wellness practices that address chronic pain, nourish whole body health, and help patients sustain a happier lifestyle.

After earning his medical degree from Semmelweis University in Budapest, Hungary in 1988, Dr. Balog continued his medical training in the United States. He completed his internship at Berkshire Medical Center, followed by his residency in internal medicine at Greenwich Hospital and his residency in anesthesiology at the University of California, San Francisco. “I became very interested in interventional pain management while completing my internship after medical school. Being able to help people get out of pain and back to their normal lives was something that really appealed to me” as stated by Dr. Balog.

His career in medicine has seen numerous accomplishments, including being recognized as ‘Compassionate Doctor’ by Vitals.com from 2009 to 2010 and receiving the ‘Patients’ Choice Award’ in 2008. Because of his ability to perform vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty, discograph, spinal infusion pumps and intradiscal electrothermal annuloplasty, Dr. Balog is one of the absolute leaders in pain management. These procedures are completed by only a few physicians. 

Dr. Balog is board-certified in anesthesiology, interventional pain management, and addiction medicine with substantial clinical management and consultative experience. Moreover, he is a member of the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, the American Pain Society, the American Society of Anesthesiologists, and the Oregon Society of Anesthesiologists. 

Pain management, pain medicine, pain control or algiatry, is a branch of medicine employing an interdisciplinary approach for easing the suffering and improving the quality of life of those living with chronic pain. Pain is actually a wide spectrum of disorders including acute pain, chronic pain, cancer pain, and sometimes a combination of these. A pain management physician has special training in the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of all different types of pain. 

Anesthesiology, anaesthesiology, anaesthesia or anaesthetics is the medical specialty concerned with the total perioperative care of patients before, during, and after surgery. Anesthesiologists specialize in anesthesia care, pain management, and critical care medicine.

In his spare time, Dr. Balog enjoys playing classical piano, eating local cuisine, dragon boating, and traveling. Strong family upbringing and hard work, he stated, are instrumental to his success.
