Dr. Attaman was elected by other physicians as a Seattle Met Magazine “Top Doc” in Pain Medicine for 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018.
Dr. Attaman is qualified to perform injections in every part of the body, including the spine. He was one of the very first physicians in Washington to offer image-guided regenerative injection into the spine starting over a decade ago. He was first treated with regenerative medicine himself as a medical student 20 years ago and has been involved with regenerative medicine procedures like prolotherapy, platelet rich plasma, and bone marrow derived stem cell procedures since that time. He offers traditional “west-coast” Milne Ongley school prolotherapy treatments and is the first physician in Washington fully trained in and offering all forms of Regenexx treatments.
Dr. Attaman is board certified and Anesthesiology-fellowship trained in the medical subspecialty of Pain Medicine and Interventional Pain Management. He is also residency trained and board certified in the specialty of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. He is also certified at the highest level by the Interventional Orthopedic Foundation (IOF) for regenerative injection techniques in all parts of the body. He is one of only a few with such extensive qualifications in the state of Washington.
