Dr. Grigsby speaks nationally on topics such as neuromodulation, the non-operative treatment of spinal disorders, the safe use of medications for treatment of pain, and the legal and regulatory issues relating to proper treatment of patients with chronic illness, among other topics. He also leads his own conferences on pain medicine, including the Napa Pain Conference and the Kauai Pain Conference.
RAMESH M. SINGA, MD, MHS
Ramesh Singa was born in Chicago at Rush-Presbyterian-St. Luke’s Medical Center. He grew up in the suburbs cheering for the Bulls, practicing piano and trombone, and dreaming of becoming a doctor. He accepted admission to Johns Hopkins University, where he studied biomedical engineering and public health. He enjoyed it so much that he joined the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. He completed his master’s degree in international health and used it for developing health programs in East Timor. He returned to his birthplace at Rush to attend medical school. He later completed his anesthesiology residency at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School affiliate Saint Barnabas Medical Center, where he became enamored with pain medicine.
After completing his training which included a year as chief resident, he again returned to Rush University for his pain medicine fellowship. There, he experienced a tremendous amount of education in pain management in the clinic, operating room, hospital floors, and a multitude of national conferences. Throughout all of it, he was commended not only on his technical expertise and inquisitive mind in research, but also for his caring, compassion, and listening ear.
