Aditya Patel, M.D.
Aditya Patel, M.D. is a double Board Certified Anesthesiologist and Interventional Pain Medicine Specialist. He has extensive training and experience in interventional pain management as well as general and regional anesthesiology. His current areas of interest include the application of regenerative medicine in the management of various painful conditions to reduce pain and restore function for his patients. Dr. Patel completed his Residency Training in Anesthesiology at the Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston New Jersey, before going on to the Mount Sinai School of Medicine where he completed a postgraduate fellowship in interventional pain management.
Prior to starting his formal medical training he completed undergraduate studies at the University of California, San Diego, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Physiology and Neuroscience. Dr. Patel earned his medical degree with high honors from St. George’s University School of Medicine. Upon completion he chose to pursue a Research Fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis. There he had the opportunity to contribute to a project studying cellular responses to hypoxia which was later published in current biology.
Dr. Patel completed Residency training in Anesthesiology at St. Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, New Jersey where he served as Chief Resident during his final year. During this time he developed a special interest in interventional pain medicine and regional anesthesia. He then had the opportunity to pursue his interests in pain management at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine where he completed an Interventional Pain Medicine Fellowship.
After finishing his Fellowship training, Dr. Patel began working as an Anesthesiologist at the Mount Sinai Brooklyn Hospital. There he worked to implement best practices in perioperative pain management complementing the comprehensive surgical services offered there. Embracing leadership opportunities at an early stage in his career, Dr. Patel was able to develop protocols for acute postoperative pain management for both ambulatory and inpatient surgical procedures emphasizing a multi-disciplinary approach to patient care.
Currently Dr. Patel has shifted his focus to providing non-surgical treatment options for all types of acute and chronic painful condition in addition to various sports injures. His current emphasis lies in incorporating office based diagnostic and therapeutic interventions in combination with multi-disciplinary physical rehabilitative modalities to help achieve the best possible results for his patients.
Dr. Mohammad Aalai
Dr. Aalai attended Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) on scholarship and majored in Biomedical Engineering with a minor in math. There he developed an interest in computer modelling of biological phenomenon as well as research into bone and joint health. During the course of his undergraduate training he also performed research in peripheral nerve regeneration using harvested olfactory bulb cells, working with renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Laligham Sekhar. He also participated in research in the field of paleo-pathology, working with mummified tissue to harvest DNA samples and isolate STD strains in an attempt to track the evolution of these pathogens over time. After his undergraduate training Dr. Aalai worked with Johns Hopkins University performing research in the field of Speech and language pathology creating tools for video analysis of swallow studies in order to better track the progression of therapeutic measures and outcomes.
Dr. Aalai performed his general surgical training at Pinnacle Health hospitals in Pennsylvania where he obtained extensive training in cardio-thoracic, vascular, oncologic, bariatric and trauma surgery. Subsequently he began his Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation training in Brooklyn New York at One Brooklyn Health, recognized world wide for its cancer rehabilitation program. During that time he initiated a research project to study the sleep quality and pain of patients within an inpatient rehabilitation facility and how this effects functional outcomes. He has presented this research at numerous conferences, including the Association of Academic Physiatrists (AAP), the American Academy of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (AAPMR) and the New York State Pain Society, wining awards for his original research. He also has presented rare case studies at the American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM) and has been invited to teach an ultrasound guided interventional workshop at the AANEM. Dr. Aalai also has original research which has been presented at these and other conferences regarding post stroke pain syndromes and seizure prophylaxis after neurosurgical intervention.
Dr. Aalai has participated in educating students and residents for many years. At one time he was the main individual responsible for Princeton Reviews general chemistry and organic chemistry MCAT preparation for the DC/MD/VA region, helping prepare hundred of students for a career in medicine. He also has taught biology at the college level including anatomy and physiology, leading cadaveric dissection.
He is also published in the areas of Cancer rehabilitation and pain syndromes as well as Musculoskeletal medicine. He authored a chapter on De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis in conjunction with Mount Sinai including diagnostic guidelines as well as ultrasound guided interventions and rehabilitation strategies. He also has an interest in medical and Interventional Procedures for mitigating Cancer pain including best practices for rehabilitation and outcomes. His interest in Cancer of the Brain and Spine including musculoskeletal manifestations of the disease gives him special insight into treating this patient population.
Dr. Aalai is active in the community and has performed civil service through the Boy Scouts of America including countless hours of volunteering as well as coaching boys club athletics and counseling troubled inner city youth. His volunteer efforts also include participating in medical treatment for NYC marathon contestants and helping to design board preparation material for doctors in training.
