Dr. Glaser is a co-founder and President of the Pain Specialists of Greater Chicago and has seen it grow into a preeminent practice in Chicago. He is well respected within the field of interventional pain management and has published, lectured, and taught extensively. He has twice been elected to the national board of the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP) by his peers and has held multiple positions in the Illinois Society of Interventional Pain Physicians including President.

Dr. Glaser has achieved all of the important certifications in the field of Interventional Pain Management. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Interventional Pain Physicians. This is acknowledged to be the highest level of credentialing for the field of interventional pain management. He is also a Fellow of Interventional Pain Practice, a certification given by the World Institute of Pain and is certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology in pain management.

Dr. Glaser was one of the first Instructors selected by the International Spinal Intervention Society (ISIS). He is now an Instructor for ASIPP, the society that has eclipsed ISIS as the leading organization representing the field of interventional pain management and promoting excellence in this field. As an instructor, he teaches other physicians minimally invasive spinal procedures on cadavers at nationally recognized ASIPP courses. He also presents continuing medical education lectures at ASIPP meetings.

Dr. Glaser's greatest joy, however, is treating and educating individuals suffering from pain in his busy practice using all the modalities of interventional pain management. His goals for the future are multifold. One is continuing to improve the safety of interventional procedures specifically transforaminal injections in the spine. The second is to continue efforts to position his practice in particular and Interventional Pain Management (IPM) in general as the first, not the last, option for musculoskeletal pain. Lastly, he is striving to illuminate all the stakeholders (patients, payors, physicians) to the ability of well trained and motivated IPM doctors to improve outcomes, reduce disability, and save money treating patients suffering spinal pain.
