Board Certified, Interventional Spine Specialist
Certificate of Added Qualification Pain Management

Usman Zafar, MD

Usman Zafar, MD is board certified in both anesthesia and pain management, and joined The Spine Care Center in 2015.  

Originally from Pottsville, Pennsylvania, he began his academic career in the city of Philadelphia. In 2003 he gained acceptance to the accelerated seven-year dual degree program at Drexel University and graduated cum laude in 2006 with a B.S. degree in Biology before completing his medical degree in 2010. After medical school, he spent one year at Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia completing his medical internship prior to residency. Dr. Zafar then furthered his medical education at Tufts Medical Center in Boston where he spent three years completing an anesthesiology residency. It was during these years that he first gained experience in treating patients with acute and chronic pain conditions which led him to pursue a fellowship in interventional pain management.

Dr. Zafar completed his interventional pain fellowship at Mount Sinai-Roosevelt Hospital in New York City in 2015, where he learned various multimodal techniques for treating pain including fluoroscopic and ultrasound-guided spine and joint injections, spinal cord stimulation and radiofrequency ablations.

After being hand selected to join The Spine Care Center, and trained directly by Dr. Bassam, Dr. Zafar has safely performed many thousands of interventional spine procedures.  By being board certified in anesthesia as well as pain management, he can offer a more comfortable experience by providing mild sedation when performing spinal procedures.

Dr. Zafar’s goals are simple: to provide his patients with a safe, comfortable, and effective interventional spine procedure. Not only to treat painful conditions, but to improve function and the quality of life for patients.  

His dedication to quality spinal care has recently earned him recognition as a Top Doctor in Washingtonian magazine.
