Giancarlo Checa, MD, of Metro Denver Pain Management, has had years of experience leveraging proven pain management techniques for individuals throughout Colorado and is the only Spanishspeaking MD in Colorado. He knows that traditional diagnostic tools like an MRI often can’t capture the complexity of the human body, so he performs a complete evaluation himself. Only then does he begin to implement medical, interventional, and multidisciplinary pain management techniques. Dr. Checa prioritizes non-narcotics-based treatments and works with patients to find solutions that best suit their wants and needs. He sees his auto accident patients out of his Englewood/Inverness clinic.
He earned his medical degree from the University of Colorado School of Medicine, where he received honors in anesthesia and urology research. He then completed his surgical internship at Saint Joseph Hospital in Denver. Dr. Checa then completed his anesthesia residency at Yale-New Haven Hospital, where he received the Anesthesia Resident Teaching Award, before continuing on to San Francisco to complete his pain management fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco.
