Deeni Bassam, MD, has more than 15 years of experience in treating back pain. He has cared for tens of thousands of patients in the Washington, D.C. area, performing interventional spinal procedures that offer relief from pain. If you have a spinal problem, chances are he’s treated it successfully, hundreds, if not thousands of times.
Dr. Bassam, a native of northern Virginia, earned his medical degree from the University of Virginia School of Medicine. He completed his residency in Anesthesia at New York Hospital – Cornell Medical Center.
After completing his residency, Dr. Bassam sought out advanced fellowship training in pain management. He completed his fellowship at Texas Tech Health Science Center, one of the most respected interventional pain management programs in the nation. He was taught by leading experts in pain management how to safely and effectively relieve pain and improve each patient’s life.
After his fellowship was complete, he served as Director of Pain Management for a teaching hospital in New York City. He created a new, hospital-based pain practice, giving thousands of patients new access to treatment they needed.
In 2005, Dr. Bassam returned home to northern Virginia and founded The Spine Care Center in Manassas. His training and experience set him apart. As a board-certified anesthesiologist and pain management physician, Dr. Bassam can provide a more comfortable patient experience for spinal procedures. He provides in-office sedation to help patients avoid pain or anxiety during epidural steroid injections, spinal cord stimulator placements, radiofrequency ablations, and many other minimally invasive spinal procedures.
Dr. Bassam’s extensive experience and skill allows him to use the most effective approach to care, delivering medicine directly to the source of the pain. He was the first doctor in Virginia to perform the mild® procedure for lumbar spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spine). He has also implanted countless spinal cord stimulators and is one of the only physicians in the area who implants intrathecal pain pumps. His quality care has earned him repeated recognition as Top Doctor in both Washingtonian magazine and Northern Virginia magazine.
Dr. Bassam is committed to his patients and supporting the Manassas community. He and his wife are raising their four kids in the area and have extended family throughout northern Virginia. In his free time, he enjoys horseback riding, reading, and scuba diving.
