Dr. Rudy Herrera is an ACGME fellowship-trained, board-certified interventional pain management physician. He obtained his medical degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. His residency occurred at the highly competitive Family Medicine program at John Peter Smith (JPS) Health Network in Fort Worth.

In addition to administering stem cell therapy for orthopedic conditions at RMI (spinal discs, knees, hips, and shoulders), Dr. Herrera specializes in the evaluation, treatment and prevention of complex pain syndromes: osteoarthritis, back and neck pain, cancer pain, pelvic and abdominal pain, chronic pain, complex regional pain syndrome (reflex sympathetic dystrophy), fibromyalgia, headaches, neuropathic pain, shingles, phantom limb pain, post herpetic neuralgia and sports related injuries.
Dr. “Rudy” is known for his compassionate and holistic approach to pain management. Dr. Rudy takes his role as a new father seriously, so when he is not working, he will usually be found spending time with his family. Outside of family activities, exercise is his second passion. He maintains physical fitness by training for ultra-marathons, Ironman triathlons and century bike rides.
Dr. Rudy values community involvement. This is evidenced by his participation in several school physicals and inner-city school career fairs. Annually, he serves as medical director for his church’s health fair.
Dr. Rudy’s mission at RMI is to provide high-quality, compassionate, individualized orthopedic stem cell interventions. He strives to “treat patients as family”.
