Dr. Sureja joined OSC in 2008 as a board-certified, fellowship-trained Interventional Pain Management Specialist. His practice is focused on pain reduction of spine and spine-related disorders through minimally-invasive interventional procedures. Dr. Sureja enjoys being a pain management specialist because he feels tremendous personal and professional satisfaction in being able to help people feel better. He has been named a “Top Doc” in Pain Medicine for 2012 and 2013 by Hampton Roads Magazine, chosen by his peers in the medical community.
Vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty and spinal cord stimulation are Dr. Sureja’s favorite therapies to perform because patients typically see results immediately and they can be done in-office at OSC. In fact, he was the first physician in this area to perform an in-office vertebroplasty and one of two to perform in-office kyphoplasty. Dr. Sureja has an excellent rate of success with his patients who are treated with spinal cord stimulation. He believes that the technology works for the great benefit of the patient. With these therapies, Dr. Sureja is pleased to say that he sees amazing improvements in quality of life for patients young and old, and several of his patients have returned to high level physical activity such as running, competitive swimming, and horseback riding!
In addition to his medical commitments, Dr. Sureja leads a busy personal life. He is married to his medical school sweetheart, who is a practicing Radiologist, specializing in Women’s Breast Health. He is the proud father of twins, Vivienne and Gabriel, and younger daughter Adeline. When he’s not spending time with his family, Dr. Sureja is an avid golfer, triathlete, and runner. He is an age-group winner of many 5k and 10k races. He is also a huge Baltimore Ravens and Orioles fan, and enjoys playing cornhole, pickup basketball, and bocce.
