Neil Malhotra MD
Interventional Pain Medicine - Anesthesiology
Dr. Neil Malhotra specializes in Anesthesiology and Pain Management. He grew up in the Western Suburbs of Chicago, and completed his undergraduate and medical school training at Saint Louis University in St. Louis, MO. He then returned to Chicago, completing his anesthesiology residency at Rush University Medical Center and his pain management fellowship at University of Illinois at Chicago.
Dr. Malhotra has extensive training in a multimodal approach to chronic pain management that consists of interventional procedural techniques, medication management, physical therapy, and psychological/cognitive behavioral therapies for chronic pain. He takes special interest in treating joint pain, as well as utilizing neuromodulation techniques in the form of spinal cord stimulation for patients with spine pain refractory to various forms of treatment.
Dr. Malhotra firmly believes that he must treat multiple aspects of his patient’s pain, as chronic pain can rarely be attributed to just one simple cause. He performs a thorough, comprehensive evaluation of all his patients to devise a uniquely-tailored treatment algorithm aimed at allowing patients to regain their functionality, reduce pain, and restore activity levels and enjoyment in life.
