Top Doctor and Medical Team:
Dr. Mikael Sarij is Board Certified in Pain Medicine by the American Board of Medical Specialties. His practice combines the caring environment of a local community practice with a stellar track record of work with prestigious institutions such as Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Department of Neurology in New York City and Harvard Medical School’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Dr. Sarij’s unique background in both Neurological and Interventional Pain Management distinguishes him within the field of pain medicine and has contributed to his ability to treat pain syndromes that are particularly difficult to manage.
State of the Art Treatments and a Wholistic Philosophy:
Integrative Spine and Pain Care has performed over 10,000 procedures, these procedures include Platelet Rich Plasma therapy for joint and tendon pain usually seen in active individuals and sports injuries, kyphoplasty for spine pain due to vertebral fractures, radiofrequency ablation for certain types of back pain and nerve pain, spinal cord stimulators and intrathecal delivery of medicine, botox for migraine headaches, and routine but important procedures such as trigger point and ultrasound guided joint injections. Minimally invasive techniques performed by Dr. Sarij produce dramatic results and minimal recovery time – most importantly these procedures help our patients avoid risky surgery. We believe that procedures are one of a number of components of successful treatment of pain. We therefore employ an approach that integrates guided physical therapy, lifestyle changes and medication management, as necessary. Our ultimate goal is for our patient to be able to enjoy the most active and wholesome lifestyle.
Caring and Knowledgeable Staff:
At the core of our practice is the enduring belief that every patient must be treated with professionalism, care and compassion. We take care to deliver some of the most advanced medical practices in a caring environment. This starts with a commitment to listen to each patient. We understand that at times choosing the best treatment option is complex, and will work with our patients to ensure that they understand the why and how. We are proud to have this dedication recognized by the patients we serve across Long Island and New York City.
