Lake Carolina Pain and Spine Center
Chronic pain is a complex medical condition that can have significant impact in every aspect of our lives.
Our philosophy is simple: Every chronic pain patient is unique and so should be the treatment plan.
Our goal is to improve function and quality of life by applying evidence-based medicine and address the source of pain rather than treating it as a symptom.
Dr. Kamran Koranloo earned his medical degree from Shiraz University of Medical Sciences in Shiraz, Iran. He worked as research assistant at University of Alberta, Canada. Dr. Koranloo completed a general surgery internship at Lincoln Medical Center in New York and an anesthesiology residency at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons in New York City.
He went on to complete an interventional pain management fellowship there. Dr. Koranloo has been treating patients with chronic pain in South Carolina since 2002. He is Board certified in both Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine by the American Board of Anesthesiology. He founded Lake Carolina Pain and Spine Center in 2013 and recently established his practice in its current location in Northeast Columbia.
He is a member of American Medical Association, American Society of Anesthesiologists, American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain, Pain Society of the Carolinas, South Carolina Medical Association and South Carolina Society of Anesthesiologists.

About Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)
We perform Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA) procedures which is an electrical current generated by a radio wave which is used to heat up (or sometimes cool down) a small area of nerve tissue, thereby decreasing pain signals from that specific area.
- We usually perform a nerve block to determine if the pain arises from those problems such as arthritis.
- RFA can be used to reduce pain in chronic neck pain, low back pain, knee arthritis pain and some other painful conditions.
- This is an office-based procedure and does not involve any incisions.
- We perform RFA commonly on our patients who experience at least 50% pain relief from diagnostic nerve blocks to prolong their relief for six to twelve months.
