Sunavo Dasgupta, M.D.



Sunavo Dasgupta, MD, is a Fellowship Trained Interventional Pain Physician and Double Board Certified Anesthesiologist. He is one of the founding partners at Premier Pain.


He also serves as co-director of the Macneal Hospital Pain Clinic. He received his M.D from the Medical College of Wisconsin, and completed his anesthesia residency at the University of Pennsylvania, ranked one of the top 5 anesthesia programs in the country. He then went on to successfully complete his interventional pain fellowship at the University of Michigan, one of the top fellowship programs in the country.


Dr. Dasgupta is expertly trained in the treatment of both acute and chronic pain. His particular interests include spinal cord stimulation, headache/cervicalgia treatment, peripheral field stimulation, and CRPS.



He has presented abstracts at the American Society of Regional Anesthesiologists conference, the largest and most prestigious conference for pain physicians. He has been invited to lecture at multiple grand rounds on topics ranging from novel intubation techniques to peripheral nerve catheter use in the treatment of CRPS.


His research has focused on the use of peripheral field stimulation in the treatment of occipital neuralgia. He is also in the process of patenting a device to help patients more effectively deal with pain in the acute post-operative period. Most recently he was published in the distinguished medical journal Anesthesia and Analgesia for his work in helping to improve patient pain control in the post operative period.


Dr. Dasgupta is a firm believer in the multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of pain. He believes that the treatment of pain is not something that can always be accomplished with a needle or scalpel.


There are many facets to the pain problem, and a patient cannot be effectively treated unless all these different factors are addressed. Every patient is different, and Dr. Dasgupta treats each patient as an individual, helping them lead more productive, functional, and enjoyable lives.
