WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, February 29, 2024 / -- AdhereRx, a telehealth company focused on improving patient outcomes through care plan adherence and medication compliance, announced today that Dr. Scott A. Sigman, a national leader in orthopedic surgery, thought leadership in the practice of medicine and a tireless advocate for non-opioid pain treatment alternatives and reducing opioid use disorder in America, joined the AdhereRx Board of Directors at its recent organizational meeting. Dr. Sigman will lend his expertise in post-surgical pain management and has been instrumental in raising investment funding for the Company from his practice in Lowell, Massachusetts.

Sigman is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon providing comprehensive care to patients at Orthopedic Surgical Associates of Lowell since 1996. He specializes in Sports Medicine. Sigman possesses the skills and experience to diagnose and treat sports injuries and conditions affecting the knee and shoulder. In addition to his practice duties, he has served as the Team Physician for the US Ski Jump Team and serves for the last 20 years as the Team Physician at UMASS Lowell and is the past Chief of Orthopedics at Lowell General Hospital.
“I have been impressed with what AdhereRx is doing in the pain management space including patient monitoring and telehealth support through its relatively new PainScript platform,” said Sigman. “NIH studies prove that enhanced communications and regular contact with our patients improves their outcomes and reduces the risk of dependency. My life’s work has been about non-opioid surgical alternatives and even advocacy in Congress to pass the NO PAIN ACT last session. So, I am proud to join and bring along my surgical practice partners in New England to this fast-growth company.”

"We are very fortunate to have the nationally renowned Dr. Scott Sigman lend his experience and counsel to our Board.
