Care Philosophy

Pain & Spine Institute began in 2007 when founders Samir Sharma, MD and Udit V. Patel DO, MS, came to the conclusion that there was a large population of patients suffering from chronic pain and nowhere to turn for medical relief. Their vision was to create a highly skilled group of pain physicians fully committed to patient care. Currently, Pain & Spine Institute is a leading pain management group servicing the Chicagoland and North West Indiana areas, offering the broadest array of pain management treatments administered by the nation's top physicians. Our physicians are active staff members at Provena Saint Joseph Medical Center and active members of Bolingbrook Adventist Hospital.Read more
