About Dr. Mallavaram

Dr. Navin Mallavaram, MD, holds board certifications in anesthesiology and pain medicine. Dr. Mallavaram graduated from the University of Colorado School of Medicine.   He completed an internal medicine internship at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, followed by his residency in anesthesiology at Columbia University in New York City. Dr. Mallavaram had the honor of being named chief resident in his final year at Columbia. After completing his residency, Dr. Mallavaram completed a fellowship in Pain Medicine at Columbia’s Manhattan Center for Pain Management.   

It was during his time as a pain management fellow that Dr. Mallavaram first used IV ketamine as a treatment for chronic pain, as well as depression and anxiety.   Since 2007, Dr. Mallavaram has been using ketamine as a treatment for chronic pain, depression, and anxiety.  He has seen the dramatic and life changing results that patients can experience with IV ketamine therapy.  Many patients are able to significantly decrease or stop chronic pain medications.  For patients suffering from depression and anxiety, IV ketamine can significantly improve symptoms, usually within the first one or two treatments. Along with traditional psychotherapy, IV ketamine can help break a cycle of depression or anxiety.   

Away from his work as a physician, Dr. Mallavaram enjoys spending time with his wife and children. He also likes to travel and play golf.
