The Christus Trinity Mother Frances Neuroscience Institute Pain Center welcomed new provider, Anwar Zaman M.D., to serve the patients of their growing community practice on Sept. 10.
“We are excited to add Dr. Zaman to our already outstanding team at Christus Trinity Mother Frances Neuroscience Institute Pain Center,” said Mike Turner, Administrative Director at Christus Trinity Clinic. “He brings a wealth of expertise and enthusiasm to the Institute. He will be an invaluable asset to Christus Trinity Mother Frances Health System and an important resource in offering the highest levels of care to our patients across Northeast Texas.”
Dr. Zaman joins Christus Trinity Mother Frances Health System after completing his Interventional Spine and Sports Medicine Fellowship at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. He has served as an instructor at UNT Health Science Center in Fort Worth and as an in-house physician for a state institution. Dr. Zaman graduated from the University of Washington with a double major in Biochemistry and Chemistry before earning his medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin in 2011 and completing his residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas.
Dr. Zaman said he is excited to be joining the Christus Trinity Mother Frances Neuroscience Institute Pain Center and taking part in the progressive and complete approach to treating chronic pain they espouse. Devoid of the stigma previously attached to chronic pain treatment, each patient at the Pain Center receives a customized, comprehensive treatment plan that ranges from physical therapy to interventional procedures.
“I’m thrilled to be joining Christus Trinity Mother Frances Health System through Christus Trinity Mother Frances Neuroscience Institute Pain Center. The physicians, nurses, APPs and staff are top-notch, and I am incredibly excited to learn more about the people of this community and do some great work,” Zaman said. “I grew up in a town just about the size of Tyler, and I love the community feel here in East Texas and helping people here. With pain management, we’re really helping people’s quality of life -- chronic pain changes the way people interact with their families and friends, and how they work."
