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, horseback riding and scuba diving, just to name a few.

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, runner, snowboarder and world traveler. His favorite thing to do is snowboarding out west with friends and family.  Dr. Sureja is also a huge Baltimore Ravens and Orioles fan and he enjoys playing pickup basketball, pickleball and attending concerts and Broadway shows.

Joseph Nolan – Spine Care

  • 2023 was the year of two new knees for me! After many years of knee injections working to decrease my pain, they stopped working. It was time for knee replacements to fix the terrible bone-on-bone pain. Dr. Boyd Haynes replaced my right knee in May and then my left knee in September. The process is like a well oiled machine and all the staff are so helpful and kind. I love my two new knees! I can walk without pain! After so long in pain, it has taken some getting used to! I am very happy and… Read More

Deborah Orband – Total Knee Replacements

  • While living in Florida, I was a patient at an orthopedic sports medicine facility where I received shots for my back pain, but had no positive results. After returning to Virginia from Florida, I knew I had to finally address my back problem and go forward with a second spinal fusion. While at a dinner, I was fortunate enough to speak to someone who had similar problems, and recommended I go see Dr. Jeffrey Carlson. Dr. Carlson was great to work with from start to finish- giving me options… Read More

Doug Kieper – Lumbar Spinal Fusion

  • 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
