Around the early 2000s, Dr. Morales became board certified in addiction medicine and was one of the few physicians to receive a waiver to prescribe Suboxone/Buprenorphine as a treatment for opioid dependence and addiction. Afterward, Dr. Morales became a sought-after guest speaker at numerous seminars and spent a good part of his career discussing the disease of addiction and explaining the benefits of certain treatments such as Suboxone and Vivitrol.
Extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Pain Medicine, Dr. Morales has also become a diplomat for several Associations in Pain Medicine, including the American Board of Pain Medicine, the American Academy of Pain Medicine, and the International Association for the Study of Pain.
With 20 years of experience in pain management, Dr. Morales remains passionate about the effects of pain and addiction, making it his mission to create effective preventive care and treatment through the innovations of modern medicine. A firm believer in the importance of teaching patients about pain addiction, and overall well-being, Dr. Morales has dedicated his career to helping patients understand how their pain originates and what they can do to manage or overcome it.
Now that anti-aging treatment has emerged as a cutting-edge field of medicine, Dr. Morales currently focuses on utilizing regenerative medicine to help treat degenerative joint and spinal disease. In addition, because rapid weight gain can also affect how patients experience pain, Dr. Morales works with other Semaglutide Clinic physicians to create hormone replacement programs that stimulate weight loss and help reduce pain or joint inflammation. With his expertise, Dr. Morales can help patients manage their pain and overall health so they can have a happier, functional, and more active lifestyle.
