Anthony Clavo, M.D.

Double Board Certified in Interventional Pain Management Specialist and Anesthesiology

Dr. Anthony Clavo is a Board-Certified Interventional Pain Management Specialist and Anesthesiologist with added areas of expertise in regenerative medicine and a variety of modalities, such as stem cell therapy.

A native of New Orleans, Dr. Clavo attended Xavier University right in his hometown and earned his undergraduate degree in Pharmacy. After graduation, he completed an internship at Methodist Medical Center in Dallas and a residency in Anesthesiology and Pain Management at the University of Texas Southwestern and Parkland Hospital, and later went on to earn his medical degree from Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee. He then pursued a fellowship in Acute and Chronic Pain Management from the University of Washington in Seattle.

He started his career as a registered pharmacist but turned to anesthesiology. “It’s essentially applying pharmacology to my patients and observing its benefits in the operating room,” Dr. Clavo said. From there, he expanded his interventional skillset into pain medicine and founded his own pain management clinic in Atlanta, called Southern Spine and Pain Institute. He later joined the Ortho Spine and Surgery of Atlanta where he served as the lead physician in the company’s interventional spine, orthopedic stem cell, and anti-aging and regenerative medicine divisions at multiple locations.

He is an active member of the American Medical Association, American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians and Kappa Psi Pharmaceutical Fraternity.

The father of two grown children, Anthony Jr. and Delaney, Dr. Clavo enjoys experiencing various cuisines, especially Creole, Italian and seafood. He also likes golfing, sporting events and travel.

Dr. Sheng studied at the LSU Health Sciences Center in Shreveport for scientific research work and completed the Anesthesiology residency program.
