Deepti Agarwal, MD is the Director of Interventional and Integrative Pain Management at Case Integrative Health.  She has been fascinated with integrative and functional medicine for as long as she can remember.  Some of her earliest childhood memories are of time she spent with her family making delicious, diabetes-controlling food for her grandfather.  Throughout her medical training, the power of those early lessons never left her, which is why Dr. Agarwal is dedicating her career to tackling the root cause of chronic disease and helping her patients live long and healthy lives combining conventional and integrative approaches. 

 

Dr. Agarwal graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania, then earned her MD from the Stony Brook School of Medicine at the State University of New York (SUNY).  She was an Intern at Winthrop University Hospital (affiliated with NYU) and completed her residency in Anesthesiology at Northwestern Memorial Hospital Feinberg School of Medicine.  Her Fellowship in Pain Medicine is from Weill Cornell Medical College/New York Presbyterian Hospital and she is currently finishing an Integrative Medicine Collaborative Faculty Fellowship at Northwestern’s Osher Center for Integrative Medicine.

 

Dr. Agarwal is dual-board certified in Anesthesiology and in Pain Medicine, as well a certified Medical Acupuncturist.  She has conducted extensive research, with 14 publication credits to her name and has lectured nationally and internationally. 

 

In addition to helping patients manage their chronic pain, Dr. Agarwal brings extensive knowledge on surgical pre-habilitation and post-habilitation as well as an expertise in metabolic dysfunction and longevity. 

 

Dr. Agarwal is also an avid cook and mixologist, and always looking for recipes and ingredients that satisfy her taste buds as well as her overall health.
