Dr. Bharara’s unique expertise within this field earned him 2018 Top Doctor recognition and he is leading the Mid-Atlantic region in performing stem cell therapy for spinal conditions including disc pain, sacroiliac joint pain, and sciatica. His expertise extends beyond spinal conditions to include the treatment of joint, tendon, and muscle conditions of the knee, shoulder, ankle, and elbows. 

Dr. Bharara’s interdisciplinary approach utilizes a synergistic team of physical therapists, massage therapists, sports trainers, aquatic therapists, and nutritionists, all working together to alleviate pain and support the patient’s recovery goals. Heralded for his compassionate approach, Dr. Bharara’s philosophy promotes the practice of innovative and safe treatment options. 

In addition, Dr. Bharara performs electro-diagnostic procedures, as well as a variety of outpatient pain reduction procedures including nerve blocks, epidural steroid injections, and spinal cord stimulators. 

Dr. Bharara’s decision to pursue this career path was cemented after he broke his leg during a soccer game in high school. After multiple surgeries, he went to see a musculoskeletal and pain physician who guided his rehabilitation and controlled his pain.
