Always dedicated to advancing the field of Pain Medicine Dr. Mehta has been an investigator on several clinical trials and research papers.
Dr. Mehta utilizes his extensive background in musculoskeletal medicine to diagnose the etiology of the patient’s pain and his expertise in the latest interventional techniques to treat all facets of pain. Dr. Mehta’s treatment philosophy takes into consideration that in order to be successful in treating his patient’s chronic pain, the patient has to take a proactive approach and therefore become part of a team approach to manage the pain. Dr. Mehta will use all conservative treatment modalities including Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Aquatic Therapy, Rehabilitation, Behavioral Therapy (hypnosis, biofeedback, pain coping skills), and coadjuvant pain medications as needed. If no significant improvement is noted in the patient’s pain complaints, then he may pursue non-surgical foothills procedures with the latest state of the art technology to help alleviate and treat the cause of the pain.
Dr. Mehta believes in a comprehensive approach to treating chronic pain and strives everyday to help improve the quality of his patients lives by using the latest in advanced pain therapy treatments. These include Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS), Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA) and Intrathecal Pain Pumps.
Dr. Mehta prides himself on being available to his patients and other physicians. He will make every effort to accommodate “Urgent” requests from a referring physician. He currently has an office in West Covina and Pomona and is on staff at eleven hospitals.
