Leesburg Pain Physician receives thumbs up!

Leesburg Pain Physician receives thumbs up!

Chirag Sanghvi M.D. now seeing patients in Leesburg, Virginia

Leesburg, Virginia – July 26, 2016 – Newbridge Spine & Pain Center, Loudoun County’s specialist pain management facility added physician Chirag Sanghvi, M.D. to head their Virginia team.

Dr. Chirag Sanghvi is board certified in both Anesthesiology and Pain Management and completed his fellowship in Pain Management at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio.

Dr. Sanghvi was the lead physician at the Prince Frederick, MD branch of Newbridge Spine & Pain for over 4 years until his recent move to Northern Virginia. After several months in Loudoun County patient feedback for this physician has been outstanding;

“[He is] very knowledgeable and professional. He listens and explains the causation and treatment plan for my condition thoroughly. I have the utmost trust in his decision making.” states current patient Kevin K.

The complexity of treating pain has never been more evident than it is today.

Due to this Dr. Chirag Sanghvi urges patients to come to pain management as early as possible, “to prevent pain from progressing into a debilitating hindrance it needs to be treated appropriately. Patients come to me after years of improperly dealing with pain and perhaps having seen many physicians. I cannot emphasize enough that the earlier I can treat a patient with interventional procedures the less likely they are to have long-term pain and the need for long-term treatment”

Pain is one of America’s largest health challenges and can have a devastating impact on a person’s ability to do every-day-things. As a firm believer in the multidisciplinary approach most of Dr. Sanghvi’s treatment plans incorporate other modalities such as physical therapy.

This fact makes Dr. Sanghvi’s goal all the more promising as he takes the Leesburg practice under his wing, “my goal is not only to help reduce pain but to optimize my patient’s ability to perform their daily tasks, pursue their hobbies and live a happy, active lifestyle.”

Newbridge Spine & Pain Center is open 5 days a week and is located at 161 Fort Evans Rd NE, Suite 340, Leesburg VA 20176. View Dr. Sanghvi’s bio at http://newbridgespine.com/doctor/sanghvi/

Read Barbara’s Q&A.

What was the nature/cause of your pain?:

I had lower back and leg pain due to complications from back surgery.

How did your condition affect your life?:

I couldn’t sit or stand up for more than 10 minutes. I experienced throbbing pain while standing up. I was forced to retire from teaching as I was unable to stand the 6 hours a day I had to. I couldn’t sleep more than 4 hours as the pain was waking me up. I had no sexual desire, no social life due to pain, and buttock pain also.

How did treatment improve your life?:

Spinal injections, along with the pain medication gave me relief.

How would you describe your experience with Newbridge Spine & Pain Center?:

All front office assistants, office manager,  nurses, Drs. and Carlton McClellan are my God-saviors with their marvelous support, understanding, attention, and patience that I don’t see at other places.

What advice would you give someone else with your condition or symptoms?:

Be honest and speak up. Firmly explain your frustration with pain and be sure to give a weekly summary of what you have been doing and how you try to work through the pain in order for the doctors to understand you better.

Don’t wait too long to take your medication if pain is intolerant. Of course, follow the pain dosages as prescribed.

If we’ve helped you please share your success story.
