Eric Grigsby, MD, MBA is a nationally-renowned pain care specialist and founder of Napa Pain Institute. Throughout his career, he has left an impact in his community - and around the world - through his work in pain management.
Dr. Grigsby’s interest in health care and community service began before medical school, as an undergraduate student at Brown University. While there, he volunteered with disabled children at the Boston Children’s Hospital department of orthopedic surgery. It was during this time that he formed a deep empathy for the extent of the pain and suffering endured by patients with chronic illness. At this time, chronic pain wasn’t well understood and there were too few ways to treat it. Dr. Grigsby committed himself to finding ways to address chronic pain and turned it into a lifelong mission to advocate for better pain care as a physician, an industry innovator, and a global health philanthropist.
