The goal of Dr. Rances and his team is to improve the quality of life of his patients using proven and evidence-based medicine, including acupuncture, physical therapy, massage, chiropractic, and when necessary, various interventional procedures. Some treatments include epidural steroid injections, nerve blocks, radiofrequency ablation, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, and spinal cord stimulation.


Alexander Rances, DO provides interventional and holistic treatments to patients at Integrative Pain Management of NY. He is board certified in Anesthesiology, Pain Medicine and Acupuncture.

Dr. Rances has nearly 20 years of experience treating patients with a wide variety of painful conditions. He initially studied Traditional Chinese Medicine and enjoyed seeing the positive results of acupuncture for many years. However, he knew that if he could combine the advancements of Western Medicine with more traditional approaches to health, patients would truly benefit. Putting his acupuncture practice aside, he applied to medical school and was accepted at the NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine where he learned how Osteopathic Principles can treat pain.

Dr. Rances' training continued at SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn where he studied Anesthesiology for 4 years, serving as chief resident his final year. He then went on for one additional year at NYU Medical Center where he completed a pain fellowship learning the most advanced treatments for pain. Currently, he has active affiliations with several hospitals including, Northwell Health-Lenox Hill, Northwell Health-LIJ, Northwell Health-North Shore, and Mt. Sinai-Beth Israel.
