About Us

Dr. Thomas Ragukonis

Board-certified in pain management, pain medicine, and anesthesiology, Dr. Ragukonis has acted as the medical director of Bergen Pain Management for over 25 years. But where did it all start?

After earning his BA degree from Rutgers University and graduating Phi Beta Kappa, attending the Rutgers Medical School (UMDNJ), and completing his residency at the prestigious Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, he knew he was ready to make a difference. That’s when he developed Bergen Pain Management with a singular goal in mind. Emphasizing minimally invasive spinal techniques, he would make it into the premiere pain management practice New Jersey deserved.

More About the Doctor

Dr. Ragukonis is also a clinical assistant professor at Rutger University. As such, he always stays ahead; he collaborates with neurosurgeons and board-certified orthopedic spine surgeons to stay abreast of the latest spinal interventions. A few of these include:

  • Endoscopic discectomy
  • Minimally invasive spinal fusion
  • Spinal implantable devices
  • SCS and DRG stimulators
  • Intrathecal pumps

While his education, certifications, and continual hard work certainly attest to his knowledge and achievements, there’s something else he values more. That’s the opinions of his patients. His patients recognize him not only as a doctor but also as a friend. He’s compassionate and caring with the utmost bedside manner.

In fact, everyone at Bergen Pain Management is this way.
