About Vittal Nagar, M.D.,Ph.D.

“My choice to work at St. Croix Health was more than just a gut feeling. Here, the staff works with a motto to treat each patient as a whole person, not just the disease. St. Croix Health provides a great working environment of team members that provide excellent patient care.”

Dr. Nagar has spent the last 5 years in Lexington, Kentucky completing his Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residency and a Fellowship in Interventional Pain. During this time, he also completed a PhD in rehabilitation sciences at Texas Tech University Health Sciences, Lubbock TX. Before moving to Kentucky, he graduated from J.S.S Medical College, Mysuru, India, and then completed an orthopedic surgery residency at Karnataka Institute of Medical Sciences, Hubli, India.

Dr. Nagar specializes in interventional pain management, physical medicine and rehabilitation, musculoskeletal medicine, and neuropathic pain management. He has conducted research and authored key publications related to chronic pain and rehabilitation medicine.

For Dr. Nagar, his family is very important. He enjoys not only spending time playing silly games with his son but also traveling, music, photography, trekking, hiking, cycling, yoga, bowling, tennis, soccer, cricket, and reading books.
