For chronic pain sufferers, finding relief from back, leg and joint pain can be a difficult and time consuming process. If you’re one of the more than 40 million Americans who suffer from chronic pain, plan on attending Kenmore Mercy Hospital’s free class, Interventional Pain Practices and Procedures, on September 8, from 5:30 -6:30 p.m. at the Williamsville Diagnostic Center located at 400 International Drive, Williamsville. During the program, Jafar Siddiqui, M.D., an interventional pain management specialist at Kenmore Mercy, will discuss how physical medicine and rehabilitation can help to relieve, reduce or manage leg, back and joint pain.
Interventional pain management is a minimally invasive treatment option for patients who have exhausted other treatment methods without success and want to avoid surgery. The discipline specializes in treatment for neck, back sciatica, arthritis, fibromyalgia, post surgical, and pelvic pain.
Dr. Siddiqui is a physiatrist at the Brain and Spine Center in Williamsville, specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of pain related disorders. He completed his medical education at Spartan Health Sciences University School of Medicine in St. Lucia; an internship in internal medicine and residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at Rush University Medical Center, Chicago; and a fellowship in interventional spine and pain medicine.
