Dr. Yoshi is the finest Dr. and person I have ever dealt with. He is kind and considerate. He cares very much about his patients, also the people he works with. I have been to quit a few Dr.'s in my 77 years. He took away my pain and made my like worth living again. I have sent him a lot of people. Even some I didn't know personally. You could not be in better hands. Connie Sundblom

Dr. Joshi says...

Dr. Jay Joshi is a nationally recognized board certified Anesthesiologist and fellowship trained Interventional Spine and Pain Management physician who has distinguished himself via his solid reputation, education, experience, and leadership roles in national activities, including Advisory Boards, Educational and CME Programs, Publications, Speaking Events, and Consulting. He is considered a National "Key Opinion Leader" in pain management and he has presented to a variety of audiences, both large and small, over 600 times. Internationally, he has worked in the Department of Substance Abuse at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland. He has been featured on major TV networks, Radio, Print, and the Internet.

Dr. Joshi is a US born physician who was accepted into medical school at the age of 16 via an accelerated honors BS/MD program with multiple scholarships. He completed an Internal Medicine internship at Northwestern and residency and fellowship at Henry Ford Hospital, one of the busiest interventional training programs in the country.

Clinically, he has served as the Medical Director of Pain Management at a large hospital in the Chicago area while simultaneously maintaining a busy private practice. He has seen patients throughout America and provided treatment options and pain relief to patients that had not been able to get the correct diagnosis or outcomes from other physicians, hospitals, and universities. He precisely performs Interventional Spine and Pain procedures that include Epidural Steroid Injections, Selective Nerve Root Blocks, Facet Joint Medial Branch Injections, Radiofrequency Ablation, Sympathetic Blocks, Spinal Cord Stimulators, Percutaneous Discectomy, Discograms, and Ketamine Infusions for intractable central sensitization pain, and Stem Cell Therapy.

As a respected advisor, he has provided knowledgeable, insightful, and creative scientific and strategic advice to numerous pharmaceutical, medical device, technology, automotive, media, marketing, and incubator companies. He has also helped hospital systems and physician groups develop and improve their pain programs nationally. He has been considered a thought leader on fraud, waste, abuse and general healthcare reform.

As a researcher, he has been involved in multiple research projects that have garnered international recognition and has contributed to the compendium of education by leading or being part of teams that were the first to describe multiple medical innovations. In 2008, his publications described novel mechanisms for actions and new theories on various chronic conditions, including PTSD, hot flashes, and smoking cravings. His current research emphasis encompasses central sensitization, which many have called the missing link in understanding the complexities of chronic pain.

As an innovator, he has been a part of teams or led teams that were first to describe and participate in multiple first in the state, first in the country, or first in the world medical innovations.  In addition, he was one of the first Anesthesiology/Interventional Pain physicians nationally involved in autologous adipose derived Stem Cell treatments with full capability of harvesting, refining, and deploying within the same visit. The Stem Cells are harvested in a relatively non-invasive manner via the patient's own fat cells, thus bypassing bone marrow aspirations or embryonic tissue.

As a person, he combines clinical medicine, research, humanism, strong intelligence/education, solid skills, and unwavering integrity/ethics.
