Interventional Pain Management Doctor | Raj N. Sureja, M.D.

Raj N. Sureja, M.D.Dr. Raj Sureja joined OSC in 2008 as a board-certified, fellowship-trained Interventional Pain Management Doctor. His practice is focused on pain reduction of the spine and spine-related disorders through minimally-invasive interventional procedures. Dr. Sureja enjoys being a pain management specialist because he feels tremendous personal and professional satisfaction in being able to help people feel better. Dr. Sureja has been named a “Top Doc” in Pain Medicine every year since 2012 by Coastal Virginia Magazine, chosen by his peers in the medical community.

His favorite therapies to perform are vertebroplastykyphoplasty and spinal cord stimulation because patients typically see results immediately and they can be done in-office at OSC. In fact, Dr. Sureja was the first physician in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia to perform an in-office vertebroplasty and one of two to perform in-office kyphoplasty. Dr. Sureja has an excellent rate of success with his patients who are treated with spinal cord stimulation. He firmly believes that this orthopedic technology works for the great benefit of the patient.

With these therapies, Dr. Sureja sees amazing improvements in quality of life for patients young and old, and several of our patients have returned to high level physical activity such as running, competitive swimming, and horseback riding.

In addition to his medical commitments, Dr. Sureja leads a busy personal life and is the proud father of four children. When he’s not spending time with his family, Dr. Sureja is an avid golfer, triathlete and runner. He is an age-group winner of many 5k and 10k races. Dr. Sureja is also a huge Baltimore Ravens and Orioles fan, and enjoys playing cornhole, pickup basketball, and bocce.

What Our Patients Are Saying

  • For over three years, I had been dealing with a condition that prevented me from standing for over 10 minutes without severe pain in my right hip and right foot would go numb. Also while walking, after about ½ mile, my right hip would start to hurt and my foot would develop a drop. It started out relatively mild and I had undergone several conservative non-invasive procedures from a surgeon in whom I had confidence in Mt. Pleasant, SC. My wife and I relocated back to the Virginia from South… Read More

Michael Taylor – Multi-level Lumbar Spinal Fusion

  • I was a professional braider for over 10 years which required me to stand for long periods of time. When the pain started in my hip, I began to receive cortisone shots but felt little relief. It wasn’t until I began working for Newport News Public Schools when the pain became unbearable, and I was unable to work. I unfortunately fell behind on my water bill because of this, and Newport News Waterworks called me to collect their payment. While I was speaking with the representative, I told her… Read More

Chanel Paschal – Direct Anterior (Jiffy) Hip Replacement

  • Maybe only once or twice in your lifetime will someone help you so much that you want to scream THANK YOU on the top of your lungs! Last year, I was unable to even go up and down the stairs. We were on a family vacation at the beach and I had to stay in the condo watching my family play on the beach while I sat on a chair in pain from my Arthritic Hips. As a 65 year old retired Clinical Counselor and mother of two teens (14 and !6) with a husband of 30 years, I thought “I am too young for… Read More

Tanya Vaughan – Bilateral “Jiffy” (Direct Anterior) Hip Replacements

  • Dr. Jeffrey Carlson saved my life in 2005 when a painful herniated disc that I’d suffered with for 3 years finally took me out of the game of life. My recovery then was unremarkable, meaning I was back to feeling normal fairly quickly. I recommended Dr. Carlson to anyone having issues, for years. I never thought I’d be seeing him again, but in 2022, after a slow deterioration in my neck, I went to see Dr. Carlson for help for a second time. His team was quick to get the necessary x-rays and… Read More

Michelle Vega – Discectomy & Cervical Fusion

  • Doctor Coleman is an exceptional surgeon who genuinely cares about his patients’ well-being. He not only did an excellent job with my shoulder surgery, but also provided me with precise instructions during recovery. Doctor Coleman was open to answering all my questions. It’s not always easy for patients to navigate the complexities of medical procedures, and having a surgeon who’s willing to take the time to answer questions and alleviate concerns can make all the difference. His… Read More
