A Fellow of Interventional Pain Practice, Dr. Akbik earned his medical degree from the University of Aleppo Faculty of Medicine in Aleppo, Syria in 1988. His extensive education includes a residency in general surgery at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in Philadelphia and a second residency in anesthesia at Harvard Medical School in Boston.

Pain management, pain medicine, pain control or algiatry, is a branch of medicine employing an interdisciplinary approach for easing the suffering and improving the quality of life of those living with chronic pain. A pain management specialist is a doctor who specializes in pain medicine, focusing on the evaluation, treatment, and prevention of pain.

Anesthesiology is the medical specialty concerned with the total perioperative care of patients before, during, and after surgery. Anesthesiologists are physicians specializing in perioperative care, the development of anesthetic plans, and the administration of anesthetics.

In hopes of sharing his knowledge and expertise, Dr. Akbik reaches out to patients in the Fairfield/Cincinnati area and abroad, having traveled to Jordan for medical mission trips since 2012. His dedication to helping patients in Syria led him to start a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization called Atlantic Humanitarian Relief.

For his compassionate and expert care, he has earned numerous accolades. According to Cincinnati Magazine and Cincy Magazine, Dr. Akbik has been voted the Top Doctor in Pain Management since 2007, an honor that is only awarded when thousands of local physicians recommend him as the doctor they would turn to and recommend to family and friends.
