Dr. Uel Alexis, MD
Dr. Uel J. Alexis, M.D. is a board certified anesthesiologist and a specialist in minimally invasive spine and pain procedures. While attending The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, he performed graduate level research with the founder and director of the Johns Hopkins Neuroscience Department. Upon graduation, he enrolled in medical school at the University of Texas in San Antonio. He completed his internship in surgery and his residency in anesthesiology at The Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City. He mastered ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve blocks for orthopedic surgeries on hips, knees and the upper extremity. Dr. Alexis completed an Invasive Pain Management Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital, where he served as the Chief Administrative Fellow. Dr. Alexis first appreciated the significant consequences of chronic pain in cancer patients while performing clinical research at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. The close relationships he built with his patients provided an intimate look on how the burdening nature of chronic disease can affect a patient’s quality of life, interfere with their ability to perform basic activities of daily living and result in physical disability. This stirred a unique passion in him to serve this overlooked population and focus his medical pursuits to provide these distinct patients with the greatest care. Dr. Alexis provides an individualized and extensive evaluation for each patient. He utilizes evidence-based practice across many disciplines including cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychiatry, neuroscience, physical medicine and rehabilitation, pharmacotherapy, pain medicine, and surgery to comprehensively treat the patient. Furthermore, his extensive experience in interventional pain management provides a clear vantage point to directly target and treat each specific problem using the latest minimally invasive techniques. Dr. Alexis’s goal is to “reduce pain to allow patients to do what they enjoy the most”. He specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of neck and back pain, degenerative disc and joint disease, herniated disc, sciatica, spinal stenosis, failed back surgery, vertebral compression fractures, headache, neuropathy, arthritis, cancer pain, chronic post-surgical pain, muscle spasms, trigger points, occipital neuralgia, atypical facial pain, trigeminal neuralgia and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) type I & II. Dr. Alexis is proud to serve on the Board of Trustees for the Bronx Medical Society and as the Chair of the Young Physicians Committee. Dr. Alexis is an avid traveler, exploring the world at every opportunity. He also speaks Amharic.

Saw him for the first time today and I was very pleased. He really took the time to explain to me about the pain I was experiencing in my lower back and really helped me to understand why it was happening. Very kind and courteous and I'm happy to have him as a doctor
