Why you should listen

Sheetal DeCaria MD is the author of the bestselling book, Break the Chronic Pain Cycle: A 90 Day Program to Diagnose and Eliminate the Root Cause of Pain. She completed anesthesia residency at University of Chicago and her pain fellowship at Northwestern University.

Weeks after passing her board exams, Dr. DeCaria found herself as a patient with chronic pain. As she navigated the health care system, she witnessed the gaps patients face when seeking a solution to their pain. She knew she had to look beyond traditional medicine to heal both herself and the patients she was treating who suffered from chronic pain.

While working as a pain physician and anesthesiologist at University of Chicago, Dr. DeCaria pursued further education in integrative medicine, including a year-long Faculty Scholars program at the Northwestern Osher Center for Integrative Medicine. In 2019, she decided to leave her position at the University of Chicago to open up her integrative pain clinic, Revitalize Medical Center, where she practices today.

Dr. DeCaria also serves as a medical expert for NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox news stations around the United States.
