The quality that we ensure includes a dedication to serving the community, preventing disease, and handling everything on a level of preventative care to chronic conditions. Dr. Malek, a board-certified General Anesthesiologist licensed in California through the American Board of Anesthesiology, understands the emotions that relate directly to pain management and works with each patient individually to ensure the best possible experience! His clinical interests include cancer pain management and interventional pain techniques to help patients recover and block the intrusive pains that they have spent so long trying to manage. He is a doctor who understands on a deeper level what it is like to see someone in chronic pain and has a specific passion for treating pain directly. This stems from his experience in treating patients in hospice care and patients with advanced illnesses, and a belief that proper pain management is extremely essential and beneficial to these patients and their families in an already tough time. He has attended several institutions located within the United States.

Quillen College of Medicine, 2001 Types of Chronic Pain Treated Arthritis Diabetes Cancer Pain Pelvic Pain Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Degenerative Disc Disease Diabetic Neuropathy Failed Back Surgery Syndrome Fibromyalgia Pain Management Headaches Herniated Disc Muscle Strain Myofascial Pain Nerve Damage (Neuropathy) Phantom & Stump Pain Sciatica Shingles Spinal Stenosis Vertebral Fractures Some of the most commonly used interventional pain management techniques include: Injections, also referred to as nerve blocks, provide temporary pain relief. They apply powerful medications, such as steroids and opioids, directly onto or near the source of pain, such as an epidural steroid injection. Radiofrequency Rhizotomy or radiofrequency ablation and neuroablation, temporarily turns off the nerve and its ability to send and receive pain messages to the brain. It involves x-ray guidance and a needle with a heated electrode at the tip and can provide pain relief for 6 to 12 months. Intrathecal Pump Implants or pain pumps, release medications straight to the source of the pain. This procedure involves a small programmable device that is implanted under the skin to dispense pain medication. Pain pumps provide continuous pain relief, and may eliminate the need for oral medications. Electrical Stimulation are similar to a pain pumps. This procedure involves a stimulator implanted with an electrical lead to rely electrical pulses directly to the source of the pain. Electrical stimulation may be used for conditions that affect the nervous system, such as Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, and diabetic peripheral neuropathy.
