Glenn S. Fuoco, DO
Glenn S. Fuoco, D.O., is board certified by both the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and the American Osteopathic Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation with sub-specialty certification in Pain Medicine by both boards. Dr. Fuoco was born and raised in the Philadelphia area and completed his undergraduate education at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pa. He attended medical school at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, where he also interned. He completed residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Tx., and a one-year Interventional Spine/Pain Management fellowship at Florida Spine Institute in Clearwater, Fl. He has been in practice in the Tampa Bay area since 2002.
Dr. Fuoco’s philosophy on helping his patients with pain centers around identifying the primary pain generator and prescribing a comprehensive approach to improve a patient’s pain and maximize functional outcomes. This can include a combination of physical therapy, interventional spinal procedures, appropriate prescription medications, as well as other modalities. A key philosophy to Dr. Fuoco’s work is educating his patients on understanding why they have pain and why the treatment plan has been prescribed. He believes his patients should know as much as possible about their condition and that this understanding of the condition will ultimately help them maximize their outcomes during treatment.
When not helping his patients in the office, Dr. Fuoco enjoys spending time with his wife, Michelle, and young son, John. He can frequently be found on the golf course carrying his son’s golf bag as his caddy or cheering on the sideline of his son’s lacrosse matches.
