Today’s announcement was made by James H. Becker, CEO of DISC parent company Trias Global, a member of the Chicago Pacific Founders portfolio: “With his extensive experience and dedication to innovating conservative care, Dr. Babaria is an excellent addition to the DISC team, especially since surgery is often not the first step in a patient’s journey,” said Becker. “His joining marks an evolution in DISC’s growth as we round out our full-body care with nonsurgical options.”
Drawing on his specialized training, Dr. Babaria uses ultrasound to evaluate muscles, nerves, tendons and joints to give patients real-time data about their injuries. He then gives each patient a tailored plan to fit their goals, with both traditional and cutting-edge treatment options that include minimally invasive interventional procedures, neuromodulation, radiofrequency ablation and orthobiologic therapies such as PRP, prolotherapy and hyaluronic acid.
Dr. Babaria also has extensive experience treating professional athletes in the NFL, MLB, PGA and other organizations both in season and during training. He is the author of numerous publications and a nationally recognized leader in his field. Dr. Babaria is passionate about improving patients’ health and quality of life using a personalized, ethical and multidisciplinary approach. He currently serves on the Patient Safety Committees for the Spine Intervention Society (SIS) and the North American Spine Society (NASS), with a focus on establishing the ethical and safety guidelines for the field at large.
