Ron Ben-Meir, DO

Ron Ben-Meir, DO, is board-certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and fellowship-trained in Interventional Spine and Sports Medicine at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine. A former Division 1 College Football player at Texas State University, his experience allows him to specialize in sports-related injuries affecting highly competitive athletes and weekend warriors alike, as well as general musculoskeletal pain.

An expert in all current non-surgical interventional processes to treat neck, back and joint pain, he also performs diagnostic procedures such as musculoskeletal ultrasound and electromyography to have a closer look at sources of muscle and nerve related pain. Dr. Ben-Meir’s focus is treating patients with acute or chronic pain. All patients receive individualized treatments that may include physical therapy, medication, yoga, chiropractic, acupuncture and ultrasound or fluoroscopy-targeted injections.
