Anand C Thakur, M.D.

At ANA Pain Management, Dr. Thakur and his staff strive to care for our patients as a whole by emphasizing a biopsychosocial approach. Upon finding a diagnosis for the patient’s pain, we use a multi modal algorithm involving physical therapy, medication management, interventional therapy, holistic medication, and psychological and behavior management. We work closely with the primary care doctors, surgeons, and therapist subspecialties of all disciplines to treat the patient’s pain most effectively. Our goal is the functional improvement of the patient for a better quality of life. We cannot promise pain free, but we can promise best possible functionality.

Chronic pain has a unique biological presentation. We utilize advanced techniques such as neuromodulation and spinal cord stimulation to alleviate multiple chronic pain. Our specialties include the treatment of neck pain, upper extremity pain, mid and low back pain, hip pain, knee pain, lower extremity pain, cancer pain and all painful conditions from both a cancer and non-cancerous standpoint.

Our office prides themselves on our team approach to interventional pain medications- from our front desk to our medical assistants, physician’s assistants, and additional office staff, our goal is to offer you the highest quality of evidence-based, cutting-edge care, specifically tailored to each patient.
