Biography

Dr. Chrystina Jeter is an experienced fellowship-trained pain management doctor and the Director of the Pain Management program at OSS Health Network.  She is board certified in both anesthesiology and pain management. She is a graduate from a top ranked medical school and completed her residency and fellowship at Stanford. 

Dr. Jeter’s goal is to treat the entire patient, addressing each problem that contributes to the patient’s pain and inability to live their life to the fullest. She advocates a complete approach to pain management, including multi-modal analgesic therapy, minimally invasive interventions and procedures, physical therapy, complementary alternative medicine, and wellness coaching.

Pain can significantly affect a person’s function and quality of life. As such, Dr. Jeter will tailor the treatment plan based on the patient’s level of pain, tolerance of medication, level of activity, age and diagnosis.

    • “I've seen Dr Stephan Yacoublan for several different injuries. He performed my surgery to fix a torn rotator cuff in the past and that was the quickest I've ever recovered from any surgery (and I've had many.).

    • “So back in April I was involved in a nasty bike accident that left me with a severely broken arm. 10 days in the hospital and 4 surgeries later I'm released to start the slow process of recovery. By the time my last surgery had finished and healed, could barely move my wrist, turn my arm, open my hand, or use my fingers. I was told by my surgeon that I ... ”
