Each of these providers brings comprehensive experience to our practice and our patients, helping us deliver the best quality in pain management care.

“We couldn’t be more excited to have Dr. Cheriyan and Dr. Gover on board with us at Summit Spine & Joint Centers,” says Conley Perry, Executive Director of Client & Patient Services. “Each brings a cutting-edge, compassionate approach to pain management with an innate dedication to helping improve the lives of people living with chronic pain.”

Meet Dr. Cheriyan

As an Anesthesiologist, Dr. Thomas Cheriyan  also trained as an Interventional Pain Management Physician. He’s not only dedicated to continuing education, but to creating personalized treatment plans to help each patient minimize their pain and maximize their mobility. Experienced in all chronic pain conditions, Dr. Cheriyan helps treat back pain, headaches, osteoarthritis and complex pain syndromes. He also maintains a keen focus on neuromodulation therapies such as spinal cord stimulators and intrathecal pain pumps.

After graduating from medical school in India, Dr. Cheriyan specialized in tissue engineering and medical device design at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston. He brings extensive experience in stem cell research for bone and cartilage regeneration. When he’s not working, you can find Dr. Cheriyan traveling, hiking or playing soccer, guitar and chess.

Meet Dr. Gover

Also an Interventional Pain Management Physician and Anesthesiologist, Dr. Adam Gover is a Texas native who completed medical school at the University of Texas and his residency in Anesthesiology at New York University. He then went on to complete a fellowship in Pain Management at Emory University, learning comprehensive pain management techniques with minimally invasive procedures.

Dr. Gover is dedicated to helping patients who live with chronic pain to improve their discomfort and be able to do what they love. Specializing in radiofrequency ablation, epidural steroid injections and neuromodulation, Dr. Gover is focused on improving quality of life while reducing dependence on opioids and invasive, unnecessary surgery.
