In 2009, he was awarded the Teacher of the Year Award from the Department of Rehabilitation.

Dr. Panagos’s research focuses on regenerative medicine, spinal injuries, and musculoskeletal rehabilitation. He has studied and written over 12 peer-reviewed research publications, acted as a journal reviewer for the ‘Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation’ and of ‘PM&R’ Journals, co-authored multiple book chapters, and was the sole author of his own textbook. Dr. Panagos released his textbook, Spine-A Rehabilitation Medicine Quick Reference, in 2010 which broadly covered the complex field of spine care.

Member survey feedback:
“Dr. Panagos looked at the entire picture, not just what may be the major cause of symptoms, but possible other factors as well. He was extremely knowledgeable and very personable too. I found him to be very professional in his preparation and delivery to describe other options outside of surgery. Thank you for helping find direction in my treatment plan.”
