“Helping you get back to life you want to live,” is Dr. Clary’s motto. Dr. Clary joined FirstLight in 2018 as an Orthopedic Spine Specialist helping those with pain from conditions such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches. He offers a comprehensive treatment plan that includes education about diagnosis, options, and interventions when possible.
As an anesthesiologist, Dr. Clary specializes in interventional pain treatment. “Interventional pain treatments cover an extensive range of conditions for patients of all ages,” he explains. “I treat sports-related injuries when someone has a non-healing issue with joint pain or muscle pain. Headaches are another area of special interest to me. But the largest segment of my practice is in treatment of spine-related pain. Spinal stenosis treatment, in particular, is probably 60 percent of my practice. Spinal stenosis can cause back or leg pain, buttock pain, foot pain, neck, arm, and shoulder pain. This is my arena. I find it incredibly rewarding to be able to relieve a patient’s pain.”
Dr. Clary attended medical school at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Pennsylvania, and completed his residency at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. He has been honored with the Lecom Ronald Esper Excellence in Surgery Award and also as an Eagle Scout of America. When Dr. Clary is not at work, he enjoys cooking, playing softball, practicing good nutrition, hiking, fishing, and family time.
