Full CV

Mauricio Daniel Garcia Jacques, MD

 

ACHE Institute of Houston was founded by Dr. Garcia Jacques, a Harvard University graduate, board certified in Pain Medicine, further specialized at the Cleveland Clinic. He is an expert in interventional pain medicine techniques including neuro-stimulation and is an advocate for multidisciplinary care for the patients with painful conditions. He is a former EMT from Monterrey Mexico who has a very diverse educational background that includes public health, biostatistics, global health and supply chain management, acupuncture, health information technology and he is board certified in anesthesiology and in pain medicine.

He has been part of the University of Harvard, Boston University, University of Texas, Cleveland Clinic, Tecnologico de Monterrey, among others. He has published in the fields of Pain Medicine, anaesthesiology, critical care medicine and cost effectiveness.

What is the product of combining these experiences? ACHE Institute of Houston. A center that wants to provide you with an alternative to pain management, that wants to give you a chance to heal!

Learning the mechanism of injury is one of the most discussed topics during EMT training. Understanding the flaws and limitations of evidence based medicine is essential to a biostatistician. Population vs individual needs and how to integrate them is the job of a public health specialist. Emerging technologies are allowing us to deliver low cost and high value services and means to communicate.
