Santa Monica, California | November 12, 2010 | F. Michael Ferrante, MD, Director of the University of California Los Angeles Pain Management Center, has been recognized by Elite American Physicians for his dedication, achievements and leadership in pain management.
As Director of the Pain Management Center, Dr. Ferrante is responsible for overseeing three physicians and four fellows, in addition to conducting research and working to relieve pain through minimally invasive techniques for his patients. The greatest reward of Dr. Ferrante’s position is his ability to diagnose and treat issues that other physicians would discard as hopeless. Passionate about helping others in need, Dr. Ferrante attributes his success to his sense of responsibility to do the right thing and his belief in God and God’s justice.
Dr. Ferrante completed his fellowship in pain medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and his fellowship in infectious diseases at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. He earned a Doctor of Medicine from New York Medical College and graduated from Tulane University Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in biology. He holds board certifications in internal medicine, pain medicine, and anesthesiology and has been honored as a Best Doctors in America from 1992 through 2010. A major highlight in his life was being baptized as a Christian at the age of 46. With over two decades of experience in health care, Dr. Ferrante advises that a key to being successful in the medical industry is to take a long term view of one’s career and develop a sense of spirituality. Also, he advises that every physician should understand that all pertinent medical information cannot be obtained during a fellowship; a physician should never stop learning his or her field.
