Dr. Haider is affiliated with several prestigious hospitals across the United States. He serves as the Chairman of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at Faxton-St. Lukes Healthcare in New York and he was the former president of the New York State Society of Interventional Pain Physicians. He is currently the Fellowship Training Director for Interventional Pain Management at the Minimally Invasive Pain Institute.
Dr. Haider is Founder of Omni Pain and Precision Medicine and Killpain LLC, with offices in NY and metropolitan Washington, D.C. His area of expertise is in minimally invasive therapies for the treatment of pain of the spinal and skeletal origin by using cutting edge technology. He has performed thousands of spinal disc procedures and is the foremost expert in intervertebral cervical, thoracic, and lumbar disc disease. He holds decades of experience in minimally invasive disc procedures such as discography, annulography, annuloplasty, nucleoplasty, endoscopic discectomy, disctrode, intradiscal electrothermal annuloplasty, acutherm, hydrodiscectomy, automated mechanical percutaneous discectomy with decompressor, disc fibrin sealant, and biodisc procedures.
Dr. Haider is actively involved in multiple FDA approved clinical research studies, where he serves as the Principal Investigator. His research is regularly published in peer reviewed medical journals. He has also authored many book chapters in the fields of Pain Medicine, Neurosurgery. and Regenerative Medicine. Dr. Haider is known globally as one of the forefront leaders in the field of neuromodulation, spinal cord stimulation, and peripheral nerve stimulation. He invented and was the first in the world to utilize the HALO Procedure™ using peripheral cranial nerve stimulation for the treatment of chronic headache. He has also founded the Omni Surgery Center, an outpatient ambulatory surgery center with four class C operating rooms, fully equipped with ultrasound and fluoroscopes, dedicated to Pain Management, Orthopedics, and Neurosurgery. He has also founded Precision Clinical Laboratories, an outpatient clinical lab, which provided diagnostic testing using mass spectrometry (LCMS), immunoassay, and DNA/Genomics.
Dr. Haider has pioneered the use of stem cells and biologics in the treatment of musculoskeletal disease and spinal disc regeneration. He first presented his cutting edge research on functional spinal discography andannulography at the International Spine Interventional Society’s 17th annual scientific meeting in 2009. Over the course of the following ten years, he has integrated regenerative biologics, platelet rich plasma, platelet rich fibrin, and bone marrow concentrate autologous stem cells for optimal treatment of spinal disc disease. Through the Cell Bionics Institute, Dr. Haider treats pain of the spinal discs, joints and extremities. In both of his locations, he practices Regenerative Medicine, primarily focusing on spinal disc treatments and therapies. These include: Discseel™, Bionic Disc™, platelet rich plasma (PRP), and bone marrow concentrate (BMC).
