Mariam Salisu, MD, MPH, recently joined UPMC’s Pain Management team.

Dr. Salisu received her medical degree at George Washington School of Medicine, Washington D.C. She then completed a residency in anesthesiology at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, Md., and a fellowship in chronic pain at Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, Mass.

“For me, managing pain is not just about treating the physical ailments of a patient, but it’s about addressing the emotional and psychological implications as well,” said Dr. Salisu. “Chronic pain can have debilitating effects on various areas of a person’s life.

“My job and objectives as a doctor are to empower patients to overcome these effects with compassion, and to help them manage their pain through surgical, non-surgical, and medicinal interventions. My vision as part of the UPMC team is to be a transformative agent to the community that I serve by engaging with and educating people on pain prevention, as well as the effective treatment of pre-existing conditions.

Dr. Salisu will see patients at UPMC Pain Management, 1100 Grampian Blvd., Williamsport; UPMC Specialty Care, 2330 Saint Mary St. West, 1st Floor, Lewisburg; and UPMC Lock Haven, 24 Cree Dr., Lock Haven. To schedule an appointment, call 570-326-8457.
