Anesthesia/Pain Medicine

Dr. Anjan K. Ghosh will soon be joining Surgery Partners – Palm Beach Pain Relief Centers, transitioning from his recent role of operating, as the sole Physician-In-Charge, Charlotte Pain Management Center, a multi-disciplinary pain clinic situated on the southwest coast of our great state of Florida, with a location just north of Punta Gorda and south of Sarasota.  For over the last five years, Dr. Ghosh has assumed the responsibility for managing the day-to-day functions of a solo-medical practice, that is, Charlotte Pain Management Center.

As a child, Anjan Ghosh was brought over to the U.S. at the age of seven from India--and in the company of his mother and younger brother—by his father, the late Ajit K. Ghosh, Ph.D., a cancer research scientist, who has led a full and memorable life and career working at Columbia University Medical Center in the City of New York.  Growing up in the Washington heights neighborhood of New York City from early childhood, the future physician completed his undergraduate college education at Columbia University, followed by earning a Masters in Microbiology from the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences {GSAS} at Columbia University and culminating in his medical school education at New York Medical College in Valhalla, New York.  
The completion of his Internal Medicine Internship was followed by Anesthesiology Residency-training, the latter choice drawing Dr. Ghosh away from his native state of New York and traveling to the West Coast of our nation; specifically, Southern California.  Early on in his Anesthesiology training, Dr. Ghosh discovered his life’s passion: to be able to provide definitive pain relief to the many patients he encountered in his trauma-anesthesia teaching program who presented with various forms of sympathetically-mediated or autonomic pain, often associated with blunt-force as well as projectile- injuries to their limbs and trunks, that is, complex regional pain syndrome {CRPS, I and II, formerly referred to as RSD or causalgia}.  By employing an armamentarium of sympathetic nerve blocks in concert with targeted physical and occupational therapeutic modalities, and complemented by the pharmacotherapy of antiepileptic drugs {AEDs , e.g. gabapentin or pregabalin}, NMDA-receptor inhibitors such as ketamine, and pharmacy-compounded topical agents, to name just a few agents, Dr. Ghosh was rewarded with the analgesic response attested to and demonstrated by his patients.  Immediately following his formal anesthesia-training, Dr. Ghosh was appointed to Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology at his teaching hospital, in which he served five postgraduate years, until he made the decision to acquire formal training in the subspecialty of Pain Medicine by means of an ACGME-accredited Pain Medicine/Anesthesiology Fellowship, obtained in Dept. of Anesthesiology at The Ohio State University Medical Center.

Dr. Ghosh moved to Florida in late 1999 to practice Pain Medicine in the sunshine state, and he has made sunny Florida his permanent home.  He is board-certified in Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine {certification conferred by the ABA, American Board of Pain Medicine, and the American Board of Interventional Pain Physicians}, Dr. Ghosh’s expertise in pain management runs the spectrum from pharmacological, non-interventional therapeutic regimens to interventional precision-guided injection procedures, targeting both spinal and peripheral pain generators.
