He also has a board certification in Pain Medicine through the American Board of Pain Medicine. His expertise in this field spans both nationally and internationally where he has provided education for physician colleagues throughout the US and Europe. Finally, he is board certified in Anti-Aging, Regenerative & Functional Medicine and holds a Masters degree in Metabolic & Nutritional Medicine. Unlike other physicians that are dabbling in the field of Regenerative Medicine, Dr. Wiederholz is board-certified in it. He is a leader in the use of autologous, bone marrow derived stem cell procedures and platelet rich plasma procedures using targeted image guidance with both ultrasound and fluoroscopy.  

The field of Pain Medicine has advanced over the years and Dr. Wiederholz prides himself on keeping up with all the most innovative advancements within the field. He performs all the basic pain management procedures, such as epidural injections, facet joint injections, rhizotomies, sacroiliac joint injections. But he is a leader in the advanced treatments within the field as well. He was the first physician in the entire state of Texas to perform the Superion procedure, a minimally invasive implant procedure for the treatment of spinal stenosis. He also implants spinal cord stimulators and intrathecal pain pumps. He also has specialized training in endoscopic spine surgical procedures. 

Dr. Wiederholz is one of just a few physicians licensed and trained to perform the Discseel™ procedure. This amazing procedure often prevents spine surgery and treats the inflammation associated with leaky disc syndrome. Invented by Dr. Kevin Pauza, Dr. Wiederholz was trained on this advanced technique and offers this therapy in Texas, New Jersey and Pennsylvania!

In his personal time Dr. Wiederholz spends time with his wife and daughter and enjoys traveling, golf and yoga. Despite being a transplant from New Jersey, he truly enjoys making Texas-style barbeque in his kamado grill. He also enjoys baking fresh bread and making homemade pasta.
