Advanced Spine & Pain Management was founded in 2006 by Dr. Mukarram A. Khan, DO with the vision of creating a medical practice that treats every patient with dignity while tending to their pain needs. The nurse practitioners and office staff at Advanced Spine & Pain Management are highly trained and very knowledgeable. Our approach to pain is multifaceted, beginning with assuring precise diagnosis, implementing a full-range rehabilitation program involving physical therapy, massage, and minimally invasive procedures, and education on what can be done to prevent re-occurrence.
We believe that through individualized treatment plans and empowering patients, we give them the tools to better help themselves. We understand that for many, visiting a doctor can be a stressful experience. Our comfortable surroundings and compassionate medical professionals provide a positive experience.
