Dr. Banon was born in Houston, Texas. He graduated from Rice University in Houston with a Bachelor of Arts in biological sciences and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas where he received his Doctor of Medicine. Subsequently, he moved back to Houston to complete an anesthesiology residency at Baylor College of Medicine. While at Baylor, he trained at Texas Children’s Hospital, Texas Heart Institute and MD Anderson Cancer Center. He was inspired to pursue subspecialty training in pain medicine while at the VA hospital in Houston where he saw firsthand how much of an impact a clinically sound pain physician can have on his or her patient’s quality of life. He was also excited by how quickly new technologies are emerging in the field. He subsequently completed a pain medicine fellowship at Emory University in Atlanta where he honed his interventional skills with mentorship from pioneers in the field. As a pain physician he seeks to provide his patients with the best care possible and help them get back to doing what they love using an innovative, safe, and effective approach.
His clinical interests include neuromodulation (both peripheral and spinal) as well as vertebral augmentation. In his free time, he enjoys playing golf, hiking, traveling, and spending time with his friends and family.
