Dr. Jiang-Ti Kong specializes in the treatment of chronic pain syndromes with expertise in the clinical management and scientific investigation of low back pain and fibromyalgia. In addition to teaching and practicing conventional pain management, Dr. Kong also leads the acupuncture service at the Stanford Pain Management Center, offering effective treatment alternatives for patients suffering from back pain, neck pain, joint pain, headaches, and complex regional pain syndrome. Dr. Kong has developed a strong interest in the interdisciplinary study of chronic pain mechanisms and alternative treatment modalities such as acupuncture. She currently leads two NIH-funded projects investigating the mechanisms of electroacupuncture for the treatment of chronic low back pain. Finally, Dr. Kong holds a BS and MS degree in materials engineering from MIT and these experiences provides the foundation for her continued interest in quantitative science and innovative devices.
