VALHALLA, N.Y. – Nitin Sekhri, MD, has been named the new medical director of pain management at Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla.
Sekhri is board certified in both anesthesiology and pain medicine. A local New Yorker, he earned his chemical engineering degree from Manhattan College before attending Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Sekhri completed his residency in anesthesiology at Columbia University Medical Center, serving as chief resident in his final year. He went on to complete his fellowship in pain medicine at Columbia and was recognized as a Virginia Apgar Research Scholar.
After fellowship, Sekhri joined the departments of anesthesiology and pain medicine at Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, where he specialized in both inpatient and outpatient pain management, with a focus on interventional procedures for cancer pain.
Sekhri joins Maureen Cooney, DNP, NP; the anchor of the Pain Management Program for the past 12 years, Drs. Reginald Rousseau and Raju Mantena of North American Partners in anesthesia, and Dr. Gary Tatz, a specialist in pediatric pain management. Together, they plan to expand the scope of services and offer multidisciplinary care for all patients.
The team said it aims to form an individualized and comprehensive plan for optimal pain treatment, allowing every patient to return to an optimal level of function in his or her work and personal life. They will collaborate with colleagues in the anesthesiology department, for postoperative pain management, and the department of radiology to provide pain management interventions such as kyphoplasty and neurolytic blocks.
