R. Carter W. Jones III, MD PhD is board certified in both Anesthesiology
and Pain Medicine and Ph.D. in Pharmacology. He has been a practicing
anesthesiologist and pain management physician since 2011.
Dr. Jones received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology from Williams
College in Williamstown, Massachusetts. He earned his Doctor of Medicine
and Doctor of Philosophy degrees at the University of Iowa in Iowa City,
Iowa with a research focus on basic mechanisms of visceral pain. He completed
an internship in Internal Medicine at the University of Colorado, residency
in Anesthesiology at the University of California, San Francisco, and
fellowship in Pain Medicine at the University of California, San Diego.
He was an Assistant Professor at the University of California, San Diego
where he practiced anesthesiology and pain management and performed clinical
and basic research on mechanisms of and treatment for chronic pain before
relocating to Colorado.
Dr. Jones, with over 10 years of experience, understands that chronic pain
is unlike almost any other medical condition in that many patients with
chronic pain suffer from its effects on a near constant basis, exacting
a tremendous physical and psychological toll on their bodies and their
lives. His goal is to use a multimodal approach, including physical, complementary,
medical, and interventional techniques, tailored to each individual patient
to improve both pain and function.
When not at work, Dr. Jones enjoys everything Colorado has to offer, including
mountain biking, snowboarding, hiking, camping, and rooting for the Broncos,
with his wife and their three children.
