Our History

Providing previously unavailable medical care to Alaskans with acute or chronic pain.

Since 2000, Advanced Pain Centers of Alaska has been providing previously unavailable medical care to Alaskans with acute or chronic pain. Wanting to use their medical expertise to serve the community, Dr. Lawrence Stinson opened their first clinic at Alaska Regional Hospital. People who had been suffering from chronic pain and other medical conditions began experiencing relief and improvement in their daily functioning. This small office rapidly expanded and eventually relocated to its own building and current home at 1917 Abbott Road in Anchorage, Alaska.
