In addition, he served as an Assistant Clinical Professor of Anesthesiology at UNDSOM; and also as the Medical Director of a large outpatient surgical center in Rancho Mirage, California.
As a pain management specialist, Dr. Grindle developed a reputation as a exceptionally compassionate and skilled practitioner. Before he left the group at Eisenhower Medical Center to go into independent practice, he was the only physician on staff surgically implanting spinal cord stimulators and intraspinal morphine pumps. In 2001, he also became the first physician in the region to perform intradiscal coblation nucleoplasty.
In order to ensure he was practicing at the highest possible standard of care upon returning to the full time practice of his primary specialty in 2009, Dr. Grindle completed the Advanced Specialty Track Fellowship in Anesthesiology at UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center.
