About Dr. Armin Oskouei, MD

Visit Healthgrades profile
DR. ARMIN OSKOUEI is a double board certified physician with specialty training in Interventional Spine-PM&R (Physiatry). He has been a pioneer in the advancement of interventional techniques for pain control. Dr. Oskouei has led research teams in both basic science research and clinical research and has presented these works at multiple national meetings around the United States and abroad, including at the American Society of Anesthesiologists’ annual conference and at the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine conferences.

As an interventional spine physician, Dr. Oskouei specializes in cutting edge treatment of pain utilizing advanced techniques and imaging modalities. For many years, he has given lectures and hands-on seminars to Atlanta pain physicians and anesthesiologists, as well as around the country, in the art of using ultrasound for injections and diagnosis. He is able to perform techniques unavailable to many providers and can stop pain by targeting nerves by direct visualization. Most pain practitioners continue to rely on fluoroscopy as their only means of visualizing human anatomy.

At Ortho Sport and Spine Physicians, Dr. Oskouei utilizes the latest techniques using not only the most advanced fluoroscopy imaging machines, but also with the top ultrasound machines available at this time to help patients find relief from their pain.

Dr. Oskouei is an Atlanta native and graduated from North Springs High School in Sandy Springs. He began to sharpen his research skills even then at the Governor’s Honors Program in the field Science, where he looked at whether antioxidants prolong cell life. He also was one of only a few students in the state to actually spend part of his high school career at both Fernbank Science Center and Fernbank Museum learning cutting edge scientific techniques.

After high school, Dr. Oskouei continued on to earn two Bachelor of Science degrees at Emory University as a double major in Biology and Neuroscience & Behavioral Biology, while he minored in Philosophy. He continued to do research in the neuroscience lab on the reward versus punishment pathways of rodents and the pharmacology that could manipulate these pathways in the limbic system.

Dr. Oskouei then went to medical school at the Medical College of Georgia where he continued his research endeavors including working on unique injection techniques to treat migraines and orofacial pain. This work was presented at the American Academy of Neurology national meeting and also at the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine national meeting. He also found time in medical school to work as a guest researcher for the National Center for Infectious Diseases at the CDC in Atlanta. In his final years of medical school, he worked with Dr. Marie Csete at Emory University, a world renowned scientist and Anesthesiologist, on cutting edge research in the realm of liver transplantation working to prevent hepatorenal syndrome with the use of vasopressin.

Dr. Oskouei pursued a residency at Emory University. There, he did breakthrough research on the use of ultrasound for performing nerve blocks and for inserting special catheters around nerves to help prevent pain for patients having surgery. After finishing his residency he stayed on staff at Emory as a professor where he worked regularly on the Acute Pain Service. Here, he provided specialized nerve blocks and catheters for patients undergoing various surgeries to prevent pain intra-operatively and post-operatively. He continued his research on ultrasound techniques and developed a grading system for predicting nerve block efficacy and local anesthetic volume requirement.

Dr. Oskouei returned to fellowship in the specialty of Interventional Spine at Emory University School of Medicine. During this training, he became adept in the field of interventional physiatry under the guidance of the physiatry physicians at Emory Orthopedics & Spine Center. He has conducted cutting edge research and provided patients with the most advanced treatments and techniques available in the field of Interventional Spine and physiatry. Dr. Oskouei now continues to work on cutting edge medicine and is collaborating with world-renowned doctors in the field of stem cell medical applications, specifically combined with minimally invasive surgery.

He was the first surgeon in Atlanta to perform Endoscopic Spine surgeries and continues to be a pioneer in the field of advanced minimally invasive spine surgical techniques. He serves patients with state-of-the-art, minimally invasive treatments for back and neck pain as well as sports related injuries. When he is not working on helping his patients or advancing the field of Interventional Spine, he enjoys snowboarding, guitar playing, auto racing, wake boarding, and pretty much anything exciting!

Becker’s Spine Review has recognized Dr. Armin Oskouei as a “Spine Surgeon Leader to Know”.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
