Meet Dr. Tim Canty

Dr. Canty specializes in treating patients with back pain, neck pain and other severe pain disorders. He is board certified by the American Board of Anesthesiologists in the area of Pain Management.


Prior to completing his Interventional Pain Management fellowship training at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Dr. Canty completed his residency in Anesthesiology at the Massachusetts General Hospital, both at Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts.

Dr. Canty was an instructor in Anesthesiology at Harvard Medical School, and was also an attending physician at Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was honored with the Inaugural Citizenship Award in 2009 for his contributions to the hospital. In 2016, he founded the Manhattan Restorative Pain Medicine Fellowship program where he serves as Director of the one-year training program for doctors learning his advanced pain treatment methods. He currently has hospital and teaching affiliations with Mount Sinai and New York University.

In addition to his work within the United States, he is a Fellow of Interventional Pain Practice and member of the World Institute of Pain Society. Dr. Canty has been a part of many medical relief missions to Venezuela, El Salvador, and Mexico with groups such as Rotaplast International, performing surgical treatments on indigent children, and continues his work globally with a goal to help alleviate his patients' pain.


Dr. Canty uses the most advanced techniques available to relieve spinal pain such as that caused by fractures, arthritis, degenerative discs, and spinal stenosis. Treating patients with severe chronic pain due to nerve damage, traumatic injuries, and reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), his practice reflects his strong expertise in the treatment of resistant pain where previous therapies have been unsuccessful. More recently, his efforts have been focused on developing the optimal application of regenerative medicine and stem cell treatments. He also continues to innovate the development of Virtual Reality augmented Ketamine therapy (KVR) for treating pain, depression and PTSD.


Dr. Canty is a member of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, The American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine, American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, The American Medical Association and the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society (top 5% of medical school class). He was elected to the New York Medical Society's Committee for Workers Compensation and No Fault guidelines as well as the Committee for Young Physicians. He also serves as an expert consultant on emerging technologies in pain management for the GLG consulting group and has authored several journal articles and book chapters focusing on the best practice for alleviating pain, performing regional block anesthesia, and spinal cord stimulation.
