About Leo I. Korotki, M.D.

After attaining my Medical degree at the University of Maryland Medical School in Baltimore, I became a resident physician at Sinai Hospital and on to become both Chief Resident and then an attending physician in the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department before opening my private practice.

Since 1982, I have been treating people with pain, some debilitating, in private practice in the greater Baltimore Metropolitan area.

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is the only medical specialty that specializes in the nonsurgical treatment and diagnosis of pain. Just like any other field of medicine, (orthopedics, neurosurgery, neurology, internal medicine, etc.) to become a specialist you must complete an internship and residency after medical school. We are taught to treat pain by means not commonly used by other physicians.

Conditions that are treated by Physical Medicine Physicians include, but are not limited to, the following: back & neck pain joint pain arm, leg, foot and hand pain numbness & tingling arthritis pinched nerves, including carpal tunnel syndrome & sciatica herniated & bulging discs, fibromyalgia/fibromyositis headaches jaw pain (and more). We are also trained in performing a complicated but specific test called electrodiagnostic studies, essential for the diagnosis of certain nerve and muscular problems.
