Read Dr. Kalina's Bio
Dr. Jared A. Kalina is an Interventional Pain specialist who has been practicing in the Chicagoland area since 2012. Dr. Kalina completed an Anesthesiology residency in Chicago at Illinois Masonic Medical Center (IMMC). In his final year at IMMC, he was voted by his peers and approved by faculty as the Chief Resident. Dr. Kalina was then accepted to a Pain Medicine Fellowship program at the University of California Davis (UCD). UCD Pain Medicine has consistently been ranked in the top 10 Pain Medicine programs in the United States.
Following his training at UCD-MC he joined a private practice in Northern California.  He enjoyed practicing in California, but he and his family returned to Chicago to be closer to their extended family.  He trained under Dr. Lee Snook, the distinguished speaker of the California Medical Association (CMA) House of Delegates.
Dr. Kalina specializes in the care of Workman Compensation and Personal Injury cases. Many times these cases can be overwhelming to the patient, but Dr. Kalina will find a balance of appropriate care and efficiency of returning the patient to work or pre-accident conditions.
He also has interest in chronic back pain, joint pain, CRPS, headaches, and somatic dysfunction. He continues to use his Osteopathic Manipulation skills when addressing many musculoskeletal pain generators. He strives to create a professional environment in which each patient’s unique concerns are evaluated through complete history and physical exams. The ultimate goal is to set up an individualized treatment plan to allow for pain relief and improved function. It is through those two goals that many of his patients report their successes.
His hobbies include basketball, hiking, traveling, and any activity involving his wife and three children.

What Patients Say

One of the best doctors I have ever had.

“I was taking my mom to see Dr Kalina for quite a while. He was so caring and listened to her and she had such good results. When I messed up my hip and back and was seeing no result from my doctor who didnt listen and didnt appear to care that I was in so much pain. I saw Dr Kalina he was so caring, understood what was going on and actually explained to me what was happening. He was able to give me some immediate relief and ordered tests that should have been done months ago. I would recommend him to anyone. He does so much more than pain management.”
