Overview

When first meeting with patients, Dr. Viji Shankar will often listen as they confide to her how much pain they have endured over the years. They have trouble or can no longer perform daily tasks like getting out of bed and brushing their teeth thus reducing their quality of life.  

As an interventional and chronic pain specialist and physiatrist, Dr. Shankar is driven to help these patients get their lives back through a multi-modal approach aimed at ending or managing their pain. After sessions with patients, many will tell her how they can now do everyday tasks. “They get so much enjoyment out of it because they were not able to do it before,” she said. “That really makes me so happy because the patient is doing so well. I feel like I was able to help them to make them happy. That drives me to do this.”  

Joining the National Spine and Pain Centers in January 2020, Dr. Shankar brings a decade of experience in the pain management field. Earning her medical degree from Madras Medical College in Chennai, India, Dr. Shankar completed both her internship in general surgery and residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at UPMC Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA.
