Dr. Sudhir Rao
Born and raised in New Jersey, Dr. Rao obtained his undergraduate Bachelors of Science degree in Bio-psychology from the University of Michigan and graduated with Class Honor. He went on to earn his Medical Doctorate from St. George?s University School of Medicine. Through his internship in Internal Medicine at Greater Baltimore Medical Center, he acquired a great deal of knowledge regarding the pathophysiology of the human body and the corresponding challenging treatments required to improve patients? lives. ?During his residency in Anesthesiology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center he was awarded distinguished honors in Neurological and Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology upon graduation.
Dr. Rao went on to further specialize in Interventional Pain Medicine as a Fellow at Mt. Sinai College of Medicine. He then worked at Baylor College of Medicine as an Assistant Professor in Pain Medicine where he educated fellows and residents. Dr. Rao also was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to work at Darnall Army Medical Center at Fort Hood, Texas. He assisted in enhancing the pain clinic at Fort Hood to begin providing advanced pain management techniques to the active-duty soldiers with war-related chronic pain issues. Dr. Rao was the first to bring spinal cord stimulation to Fort Hood as well as treat chronic neuropathic pain using cutting edge technology. ?He continues to feel that having the opportunity to assist the Army pain physicians as well as treat wounded soldiers is an unparalleled honor and privilege.
Despite Dr. Rao?s years of training focusing on traditional medicine, he developed a strong interest in Functional and Integrative medicine to treat chronic illness with alternative methods after a personal experience with limitations in traditional medicine. ?A personal experience inspired Dr. Rao to enroll in an Advanced Fellowship program in Anti-Aging, Regenerative and Functional Medicine and a Master?s Degree Program through the University of South Florida in Metabolic Medicine and Nutrition to provide alternative and integrative treatment options. ?He firmly believes that in order to provide optimal wellness, physicians need to be empowered with a more holistic approach to work with traditional medicine. ?He is now Board Certified in Anti-Aging, Regenerative and Functional Medicine as well as Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine.
Dr. Rao is the attending medical physician who will assess and release athletes for the return to play protocol.
368 Athletics, Inc. (368) represents the concept of optimal fitness and wellness encompassing the 8 Essentials of Athleticism. They are strength, power, flexibility, reflexes, SAQ (speed, agility, & quickness), balance, mental preparation, and recovery. We refer to most of our clients as athletes because this is how we train them. From the general population to professional athletes, 368 staff trains the body to depend on itself with full range of motion movements and strength building scenarios. ?With this philosophy of fitness, it becomes about what your body feels like on a daily basis and less about what it looks like. ?When you feel stronger, have more endurance, and have enhanced flexibility, suddenly you move better! ?We all have biomechanics that can be improved upon to create each person?s own level of athleticism.
