"My goal is to create a patient-centric atmosphere, where patients feel safe and cared for while receiving the best in spine care and pain management. My commitment to my patients is to provide them with attentive, personalized care and offer them treatment options best tailored to their needs."

I received my medical degree from Khyber Medical College, Peshawar, Pakistan. I completed my residency in anesthesiology at the Cleveland Clinic, and I completed a fellowship in pain management from the Cleveland Clinic as well. I also have special training in Transforaminal Endoscopic Discectomy, Vertebral Augmentation, Kyphoplasty, Vertebroplasty, Peripheral Nerve Stimulation and Ultrasound guided procedures. I am board certified in interventional pain management and anesthesiology.

I provide spinal procedures, epidurals, facets, SI joint block, RFAs, Discogram, non-spinal procedures, Sympathetic Blocks & Neurolysis, Trigeminal Ganglion Radiofrequency Ablation, Kyphoplasty, Sacroplasty, Spinal Cord and Peripheral Nerve Stimulation. I continually evaluate new and developing diagnostic tools and treatments, selecting only those with the best proven results.

My areas of interest include: Spinal Pain, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (RSD) and Trigeminal Neuralgia.

Outside of the clinic, I enjoy golf, cricket, traveling and spending time with my family.
