Buffalo Business First featured Kalia, an interventional spine and pain medicine specialist, in their special insert highlighting innovation and the future of health care.

The article highlights his work in nerve stimulation therapy. Recently, he completed the region’s first surgical implant of the StimRouter Neuromodulation System.
