Interventional Pain Management

About Dr. Shah

Board-certified and fellowship-trained in pain medicine, Dr. Kaya Shah offers interventional pain management care for chronic and acute bone, joint, muscle, and nerve pain. She specializes in the use of the latest interventional and nonsurgical treatments for orthopedic and neurological injuries and conditions.

Dr. Shah is a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she received bachelor’s degrees in both physics and planetary science. She went on to serve as a research assistant at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health for two years before moving on to medical school. Dr. Shah earned her Doctor of Medicine degree at Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine in Maywood, Illinois, where she also completed an internship in surgery and a residency in anesthesiology at Loyola University Medical Center. 

After her residency, Dr. Shah served as an anesthesiologist at CAP Anesthesia PC in Massachusetts for several years before completing an exclusive interventional pain management fellowship at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center in Boston. Through this year of intensive training in the Department of Anesthesiology, she learned the latest, proven methods in managing pain with medications and state-of-the-art interventional procedures, such as joint injections, neck and spine injections, ultrasound-guided nerve blocks, trigger point injections, and nerve electrical conduction procedures for pain.

Dr. Shah is certified in anesthesiology and subspecialty-certified in pain medicine by the American Board of Anesthesiology. 

Dr. Shah is available for consultation in Peabody, and when she isn’t seeing patients, she enjoys travel and amateur observational astronomy.
