Fellowship-trained and board-certified pain management specialist Dr. Heather Nath joined Lakeshore Bone & Joint Institute in 2008. As a pain management doctor, Dr. Nath’s goal is to provide academic-level care in a personal setting. She approaches each patient as a "total person" and uses individualized treatment plans when managing complex pain issues. Her practice scope includes advanced spinal cord stimulation techniques for chronic low back pain and neuropathic conditions as well as the appropriate diagnosis and treatment of complex regional pain syndrome. Dr. Nath has over 24 years of experience, and the latest technology stimulators offer tremendous success for patients previously thought to have few options.

Dr. Nath completed her undergraduate studies in science at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois, followed by earning her Doctor of Medicine degree at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois. There, she also underwent a medical internship in obstetrics and gynecology, followed by a residency in anesthesiology and additional specialty training through a fellowship in pain management. Dr. Nath also practiced for 10 years as a teaching attending at Rush University Medical Center in anesthesiology and pain managment.

When she is not treating patients, Dr. Nath likes to travel and enjoys various aspects of home renovation. 

Dr. Nath is available to see patients at our Chesterton and Portage offices.

“Dr. Nath takes time to listen. She understands how pain can affect everything you do. My appointments are close to the appt time. If not, I know that someone is getting the care that they need. I don’t know what I would do without Dr. Nath! Her office is very friendly and always seems to run smoothly.”
