About Matthew Meroney
My name is Matthew Meroney, MD, and I am an assistant professor of anesthesiology in the University of Florida Division of Pain Medicine. I received my medical degree at Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, where I also completed an intern year in internal medicine. Afterward, I completed my anesthesiology residency at the University of Texas Medical Branch and my pain medicine fellowship here at the University of Florida.
Growing up, there were two major inspirations that influenced my decision to become a doctor. The first was assisting my family’s veterinarian in performing C-sections on our cattle. The second was my brother becoming an emergency medical technician, or EMT, which motivated me to enter the world of medicine by becoming one as well.
I have a special interest in endoscopic spine surgery. My other medical interests include spinal stenosis, lumbar radiculopathy, disc herniations, interlaminar and transforaminal endoscopic lumbar decompression, and neuropathic neck and back pain. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a patient whose pain has improved!
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my three children and beautiful wife. I also enjoy wakeboarding and kiteboarding, and I am working on my pilot’s license.
