Dr Saipriya Tewari has done her post graduation from Maulana Azad Medical College, New Delhi. Following that she completed her training in Pain Management and Palliative Care from SGPGIMS, Lucknow. As a Pain Management specialist, she can assist patients in coping with pain caused by a variety of medical conditions including, but not limited to cancer pain, palliative and end of life care, muscular and myofascial pain, failed back surgery syndrome, bulging or herniated disc, spinal stenosis, neck and back pain, sympathetically mediated pain, scar tissue pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, sciatica, neuropathic (nerve) pain and complex regional pain syndromes. Minimally invasive interventional pain management procedures offered by her include myofascial trigger point injections, coeliac plexus or splanchnic nerve blocks, lumbar sympathetic plexus blocks, epidural steroid injections, transforaminal epidural injections, epidural lysis of adhesions, radiofrequency ablation, discography , nucleoplasty, facet joint injections, selective ganglion blocks, sacroiliac joint injections, intra-articular injections (knee/hip/shoulder), genicular nerve blocks and regenerative (Platelet rich plasma) therapy.
She has to her credit several research papers in indexed journals, and has been invited as Faculty in the International Conference on Pain Management regularly over the past 3 years. She is a keen learner and continuously strives to keep up pace with the ever advancing medical science.
Her belief strongly echoes with that of Marcia Angell when she says “Few things a doctor does are more important than relieving pain. . . pain is soul destroying. No patient should have to endure intense pain unnecessarily. The quality of mercy is essential to the practice of medicine; here, of all places, it should not be strained.”
