Furthermore, Dr Rajendra Sahoo is the ONLY Pain Physician in India to TWO Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Diploma from 2 globally acclaimed professional bodies- World Institute of Pain (WIP) and ASRA.

After MBBS from MKCG Medical College, Berhampur, Dr Sahoo pursued his MD from the famous Grant Medical College, Mumbai followed by 1-year fellowship in regional anesthesia and acute pain management at the prestigious Ganga Hospital, Coimbatore and then 2-years of Pain Training at Hyderabad followed by 2-years of “Advanced Pain Fellowship” from Toronto Western Hospital, University of Toronto, Canada.

Dr Rajendra Sahoo is a pioneer in the non-surgical treatment of day-to-day “Chronic pain Conditions” like Spondylosis/Spondylitis, Back pain, Slip disc/Sciatica, neck pain, arthritis, joint pain, frozen shoulder, nerve pain, headaches, migraine, trigeminal neuralgia, musculoskeletal pain, ligament and tendon-related pain, heel pain, cancer pain, CRPS, fibromyalgia and other complex pain conditions. The important aspect in Dr Sahoo’s approach is he listens and pays attention to all details and focusses on the “bio-psycho-social model” of pain assessment and treatment. Another highlight of Neuron Pain & spine Clinic is utilization and availability of “Ultrasound Machine” which adds significant value in confirming diagnosis and management of various nerve-related, muscle, joint, ligament and bone pain. Very few Pain clinics in India boast of having an Ultrasound machine and that makes a big difference.
