The nation is facing an unprecedented opioid crisis, which claims more than 65,000 lives each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
As more people struggle with chronic pain and the opioid crisis reaches epic proportions, it is necessary to understand pain management and pain management. In this new book, Dr. Zafar Purvez, a neurologist at the University of Virginia Medical School, offers authoritative information about pain - and its conditions. He looks at pain from a cultural, biological and medical perspective and discusses the role of pain in the human condition, its causes and treatments, and its treatment options. From assessing pain, to finding a doctor who can treat it, to managing pain through non-medical approaches such as meditation, Purvez guides readers through a variety of topics.
He has published more than 1,000 papers on pain management and is a member of the board of trustees of the American Academy of Pain Medicine and the International Pain Society.
He has participated in numerous studies and publications, worked as an industry consultant, and has spoken and written about pain - related issues - on radio and television. After completing his gastroenterology fellowship in 1987, he joined the faculty of the University of Virginia. He is also a member of the Board of Trustees of the American Academy of Pain Medicine and the International Pain Society and has co-authored several papers on pain management in the field of bariatric surgery. The CMR, which conducted the GastroEnterology - Bariatric study, was the first clinical trial of its kind in Europe and is an active participant in a number of other clinical trials around the world.
Dr. Purvez believes in partnering with patients and their families to develop and pursue the best possible treatment options for their medical needs. His particular interests include the treatment of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, cancer of the digestive tract and other chronic diseases.

Doctors who were disciplined by state regulators for violations during the review process were also excluded from the list. Virginia Living has reviewed and confirmed that the published winners had time to review and take into account the results of a review by the Virginia Department of Health. If we could not find a doctor with at least 1,000 points on a scale of 1 to 10, we removed that doctor from our list. We created a composite score for each physician by collecting nominations and additional information from a variety of sources, including the American College of Physicians, the Medical Society of Virginia, and others.
