Today’s clinicians, scientists and researchers are deeply indebted to the seminal thinkers, early advocates for pain management, and scientific powerhouses whose contributions forged a path for others to follow.

Dr. Elliot Krames is a pioneer in pain and neuroscience, and one of the leading experts in the field of intraspinal analgesia. He is a world-recognized leader and educator in the field of neuromodulation for pain control. He has written extensively on implantable technologies for pain management and has conducted national and international symposia related to this topic.

Among his awards and honors, he received the President’s Award for Outstanding Service from the North American Neuromodulation Society in 2003 and Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011; the International Neuromodulation Society’s Giant of Neuromodulation Award in 2013, and the American Academy of Pain Medicine’s President’s Award for Promoting the Science of Pain Medicine in 2014.

Dr. Krames has published more than 100 research papers, serves on several editorial boards, and co-edited a number of books, including Operative Neuromodulation: Volume 1: Functional Neuroprosthetic Surgery in 2007 with Professor Damianos Sakas and Brian Simpson, MA, MD, FRCS, and Neuromodulation, Volumes 1 – 2 in 2009 with professors P. Hunter Peckham and Ali Rezai.

Dr. Krames was the founding editor of Neuromodulation: Technology at the Neural Interface, the journal of the International Neuromodulation Society, serving as Editor-in-Chief from 1998 until September 2009, when he became Emeritus Editor-in-Chief. Dr. Krames served as INS President from 2006 to 2009, as Immediate Past President from 2009 to 2011, and since 2011 has been Emeritus Director-at-Large.
