Chicago Pain Management Center
Dr. Nidal Elbaridi – As a young man Dr. Nidal Elbaridi sustained a life threatening head injury after a motor vehicle accident. He fully recovered through extensive rehabilitation, embracing health and fitness as a lifestyle. This experience was a pivotal process in his personal and professional life.
Early in his career, he chose a profession in physical therapy where as a business owner, he quickly learned the interplay between the practice of medicine and the cost of health care delivery. This continued passion for patient care and my quest for higher learning led him to transition to a career as a physician with a focus on anesthesia and pain management.
He received my residency training in anesthesiology at John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County in Chicago, Illinois. He then completed further training as a fellow in multidisciplinary interventional pain medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts where he also served as adjunct clinical instructor at Harvard Medical School.

Integrated Pain Management
Dr. Tian Xia had been living in a medical environment for his entire youth; literally. As the child of a doctor in China, where hospitals provide housing for their doctors, Tian grew up on what amounts to a hospital complex.

After completing one year of medical school in China, Dr. Xia came to the United States in 1991. With a keen insight into the benefits of treating the whole person rather than just isolated symptoms and areas, Dr. Xia decided to pursue osteopathic medicine and pain management.
