My practice is dedicated to interventional pain management, electrodiagnostic medicine, and sports medicine. I focus on treating patients with nonsurgical options, such as physical therapy, steroid injections, and regenerative medicine or orthobiologic injections.

I am interested in the management of degenerative diseases of the bone, joint, and spine and how they impact my patients’ lives. I am committed to listening to my patients’ concerns, and I try to educate them on the different ways to achieve maximum functional potential. I also strive to alleviate suffering as if it were my own. I believe my role is not only to correct physical problems but also to help patients tackle the numerous hurdles that may lie ahead.

A native of Vijayawada, Andhra Pradesh, India, I moved to the United States in 2000. Since then, travelled all over united states for internship, residency and fellowship training and finally settled in Birmingham joining Ortho Alabama Spine and Sports in 2007. I am board certified in 4 different specialties. Along with providing patient care, I enjoy teaching intervention procedures for spine, joint, tendon and ligament pathologies to doctors from all over the country, through our fellowship program recognized by North American Spine Society (NASS). I am a lecturer and cadaver lab instructor for various courses conducted by NASS and AAPM&R. I am also committed to improving the non-surgical interventions for musculoskeletal problems and do research projects in collaboration with Alabama Clinic Therapeutics (ACT).

My wife, Vinita, and I have three children, who are studying in Vestavia Schools.
