Pain Management: Amit Sharma, MD
Amit Sharma, MD, is a board certified interventional pain management physician and anesthesiologist at Long Island Neurosurgical & Pain Specialists (LINPS). He notes that pain is a natural although unpleasant response of the body and frequently a sign of an underlying problem. While the underlying issue is being diagnosed or treated, pain medications are used to suppress this sensation. Dr. Sharma strives to diagnose the source of pain in view of his belief that few painful medical conditions require long-term treatment with pain medications. He focuses on patient education and a minimally invasive approach to diagnosis and treatment. Following diagnosis, he offers a treatment plan using the most sophisticated and innovative interventional pain modalities.
