About

Bio

I was born in India but spent most of his childhood in Nepal. I received my medical education at Kasturba Medical College, Mangalore, India, one of the best medical schools in India. I graduated with distinctions, securing a position among top 5% of the graduating class. After completing the clinical internship in one of the top trauma hospitals in New Delhi, India, I moved to United Kingdom where he received extensive ER experience under Dr Brayley, who encouraged me to pursue the career in Anesthesia and pain management after seeing my clinical acumen in dealing with difficult pain patients in ER. I then migrated to United States in 1999 to join the Anesthesiology and critical care Residency at Tulane University Hospital, New Orleans. I also received the prestigious “best humanitarian award and “outstanding graduating resident of the year award from Tulane University. At Tulane I worked with Dr Melvin Gitlin and Dr Corey Scher. After finishing residency I practiced as an attending anesthesiologist and mastered different anesthesia skills including epidural, spinal injections and critical care. I am Board certified in anesthesiology and pain management by American Board of Anesthesiology. To further enhance my skills I joined the world famous M D Anderson cancer center, Houston, Texas for Pain Management fellowship. I worked with Dr Allen Burton, Dr Baseem Hamid and Dr Larry Driver, well known personalities in pain management. I received extensive training in latest interventional pain management techniques and I also became proficient cancer pain management. I always believes in philosophy of patient safety and my highest priority is to deliver the appropriate and adequate medical care to the patient by applying the latest techniques and knowledge. I always likes to involve the family members of the patient in the treatment planning so that they are also aware of the different treatment options for their loved ones. I am a strong proponent of multidisciplinary approach for the pain management. I dont not mind to go an extra mile to accomplish my goal to provide the best treatment plan for my patients. i am well liked by my patients, clinical and nonclinical staffs. I serve as the Assistant Medical Director. I bring my years of experience and maturity to further enhance and continue the culture of best patient care at Las Vegas pain Institute and Medical center.

I : I recommend that you should go to your primary care physician so that he can check it and refer for possible doppler ultrasound to rule out the clot if necessary. Clot usually dont present as a knot, it may present as pain, redness , swelling in calf(common in calf but can be any part of lower extremity).Knot can be caused by many other reasons also like injury. But to be on safe side please consult your physician.Thanks.

Most : Most likely you may have some ligament sprain, but if the pain continue to bother you then you should get the knee examined by orthopedics to rule out any meniscal injury inside the knee.Sometimes while doing exercise or while playing sports our knee gets twisted and there may be a meniscus tear. Sprain should subside on its own. Other possibility is some ostoearthritis but that depends upon things like age, overweight, morning stiffness. So if the pain doesnt subside please have your primary care refer to orthopedics.Thanks.

Oxycontine : Oxycontine and Percocet are basically same compound oxycodone. Only difference is oxycontine is slow releasing oxycodone and Percocet is fast releasing so if u take any of those, your drug test will be positive for oxycodone.Thanks.
