As an avid mountain biker, ski and snow boarder, windsurfer, kite boarder (and just about any other activity known to snow or surf), Dr. Binegar realizes that the ability to pursue an active lifestyle is a gift. He very much appreciates the outdoor life Idaho has to offer, so you might see him riding or biking in the Treasure Valley, Sun Valley or McCall. He knows being inactive due to chronic pain can be both frustrating and debilitating for patients. It is for that reason Dr. Binegar has devoted his professional life to Pain Management and the goal of helping patients eliminate chronic pain and get on with their lives. Dr. Binegar is a native of North Dakota and received his undergraduate and medical degrees at the University of North Dakota. His internship was conducted at Sioux Valley Hospital in Sioux Falls, SD. Dr. Binegar completed his Anesthesiology Residency at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN and Scottsdale, AZ. In 2003, Dr. Binegar founded Pain Care Boise, a clinic and outpatient ambulatory surgery center(Medicare and AAAHC certified) dedicated solely to the treatment of pain. Prior to his founding Pain Care Boise, Dr. Binegar was a senior staff Anesthesiologist at St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center for over ten years. His professional memberships and affiliations include: The American Medical Association, Idaho Medical Association, International Spine Intervention Society, International Association for the Study of Pain, the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (and Idaho chapter), American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography, and American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine.
