Dr. Boris Terebuh

Translating Pain’s Message
Specializes in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation and Pain Management

Patients look forward to a visit with Dr. Boris Terebuh. As a practitioner of musculoskeletal medicine, he alleviates pain. Dr. Terebuh has been re-envisioning his profession’s current solution of pain management. He realized that focusing on the symptom of pain and offering medication as the only solution was short sighted. He has dedicated the past twelve years of his career to teaching patients how to manage their pain independent of medication.

Our society has a pain problem. We have become hypersensitive to it and are terrified of it. Pain is a universal language, but it doesn’t speak English. We do our best to guess how to treat the symptom, but sometimes that does not fix the issue that causes the pain. With opioid use out of control, alternatives methods are being developed to treating pain without medication. As a specialist in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation and Pain Management, Dr. Boris Terebuh has learned to translate the pain message. He shares pain’s message with his patients and is excited to share what Regenerative Medicine has to offer right now and in the future.

Spark in Motion
Nuclear Radiologist and first Poet Laureate of Ohio (Amit) and Dancer (Ami)

Watch their TEDxHilliard performance

Amit Majmudar gets paid to look for patterns. In his day job as a nuclear radiologist, Amit scans X-rays, CT-rays, CT scans, and Pet scans looking for the pattern of normal anatomy. At home, Amit uses his love for patterns in writing his poetry, creating patterns in language. He says language has both a mathematical and musical aspect to it that quickens it into poetry. Similar to her husband, Ami Majmudar finds patterns in everyday life, though she experiences them through rhythm and motion. With three decades of experience as a classically trained Bharata natyam dancer, Ami uses dance and the motion of her body to express emotion and stories.

Inspired by the program’s theme of Spark, Amit & Ami Majmudar bring their gifts of spoken word and dance to the TEDxHilliard stage. Their choreographed performance of words, rhyme, rhythm, and Bharata natyam, an Indian Classical Dance, celebrate the feeling of a spark, internal fires, and the small beginnings of world-changing things. This powerful performance interprets the feeling of the soul when it is set on fire.

Once we learn to shift our perspective, what we once thought of as a negative situation is actually a gift that propels life to an extraordinary level.
