Akash Bajaj, M.D.



Dr. Bajaj completed his undergraduate studies at UCSD, graduating summa cum laude, and is a member of the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa & Golden Key Honor societies. He then went on to simultaneously earn his M.D. and a Master’s degree in Public Health (M.P.H.) from New York Medical College. He was also a first responder for the 9/11 attacks in New York City. After this experience, he served a residency in Anesthesiology at UCLA Medical Center. While at UCLA, he pioneered the development of audio and visual distractions during O.R. Anesthesia as a novel adjunct to administering Anesthesia and alleviating acute painful states. Choosing then to sub-specialize in pain medicine, he completed an Interventional Pain Medicine Fellowship at the prestigious University of California San Francisco (UCSF), selected as one of only five fellows.

He has almost two decades of experience and continues to stay on top of the most cutting-edge techniques available. He has a strong focus on regenerative medicine of spine and orthopedic injuries. This includes techniques involving PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and Stem Cells. He is a recognized leader in his field, and his lectures have been heard and seen nationally on CBS Radio, “The Doctors”, ABC7 News in Los Angeles, UCLA, and UCSF among others.

Dr. Bajaj is Triple Board Certified in Anesthesia, Pain Management, and Anti Aging Medicine. This unique and extremely rare combination of education and experience contributes to his excellent outcomes and results that matter.
