Dr. Jose Sarria, former chief of interventional pain medicine at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, has joined the Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine, which has locations in Sarasota and Bradenton.

Sarria, a pain medicine and palliative care physician, ran interventional pain medicine services at Moffitt for a decade, according to a release. After Moffitt, in 2014, he founded The Peregrine Institute in Wesley Chapel, which provides pain and symptom management for cancer patients, as well as chronic pain patients. Sarria is also an assistant professor of Anesthesiology, Neurology and Oncologic Sciences at the University Of South Florida Morsani College Of Medicine, the release adds. Sarria will remain an attending physician in Tampa.

The Ramos Center, with Sarria, also plans to begin offering the Spine Tumor Ablation with Radiofrequency (STAR) procedure. It's an advanced procedure that provides rapid pain relief from metastatic spinal tumors in a single minimally invasive outpatient treatment, according to the release. The practice would be one of the first in the region to use the STAR procedure.

“Spine Tumor Ablation with Radiofrequency is a great advancement in the palliative care options we offer our patients,” says Dr. Fabian Ramos in the release. “This new targeted therapy provides rapid relief of pain from the debilitating effects of spinal tumors in the vertebrae without interrupting a patient's current cancer treatment schedule, regardless if current treatment is being done with radiation or chemotherapy.
The Ramos Center for Interventional & Functional Pain Medicine has offices on 100 3rd Ave. West, Suite 110, Bradenton and 5741 Bee Ridge Road, Suite 550, Sarasota.
