COOLIEF radiofrequency is a new non-invasive, outpatient treatment option for those suffering from knee pain, hip pain, SI joint, and chronic back pain. This advanced procedure uses radiofrequency energy to safely target the sensory nerves causing pain. COOLIEF circulates water through the device that serves as a heat sink while heating nerves to create a treatment area that is larger than conventional radiofrequency ablation. This combination targets the pain-causing nerves without excessive heating or damage to surrounding tissues. I have performed this procedure with great success for many patients. It is safe for patients who have undergone joint replacement because this procedure blocks nerve pain before the nerves enter the joint space.

Medical marijuana has been in the news a lot lately. Since it became legal under Florida state law for certain medical conditions, many people have asked me about whether it is right for them or their loved ones, whether it is legal, what forms of the drug may be used, and how to find a treatment center.
To address these and other questions, I will be giving a talk tonight February 28, 2018 at 6:00pm at the West St. Petersburg Community Library at 6605 5th Ave. N St. Petersburg, FL 33710.
Sorry for the short notice – I will try to advertise these community talks further in advance. If you cannot make it to the talk, you may find some of your answers at the Office of Medical Marijuana Use. Or feel free to call my office at (727) 495-6085.
Christmas is a wonderful time of year for millions of people worldwide, and a holiday that I personally cherish. For many of us, it’s a time to spend with family and dear friends, and that is what I plan to do in the coming weeks. I’d like to personally wish everyone a merry Christmas this year! And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, then happy Hanukkah or even just have a great holiday season!
I’d also like to thank everyone who has helped make my practice successful in such a short time. I’m especially grateful to all my patients for putting their faith in me. I hope I’ve been able to help each of you find treatment that brings you closer to your goals.
As I’ve said before, I will be changing locations in the near future. As of right now, I do not have any new announcements, but very soon I should have some great news to share with everyone!

In June, Dr. Bunch appeared on Bay News 9 to discuss Coolief, a technique for treating knee, hip, low back and other joint pains. The procedure is an outpatient, non-invasive treatment that has FDA approval for osteoarthritis.
I’m pleased to announce today that I will be moving my medical practice to a new location and putting down permanent roots in the St. Petersburg area. This isn’t the beginning of my career, nor even the beginning of my work in this beautiful part of Florida. As my patients and colleagues know, I have enjoyed working in Pinellas County offering a whole-person approach to chronic pain treatment in this community.
Coming very soon–the start of a new phase of my practice: I will be changing locations and management, so that I can continue to provide my patients with the very best in pain management.
I unfortunately do not have any new information to share publicly at this time, but I will keep this webpage updated once I do. In the meantime, please feel free to leave comments or email me for information about setting up an appointment.
