Dr. Sturm performed his anesthesia training at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation and his pain fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in 1996. While at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, he treated patients from across the world with some of the most complex pain-related issues and sought the most advanced treatments for them.

Dr. Sturm and his staff are amazing! You hardly ever have to wait to be seen like some doctor's offices. Dr. Sturm is professional, and caring, makes sure you are comfortable whenever he has to do a procedure in his office and explains everything he is doing or wants you to do in detail, and makes sure that you understand. I have been to other pain management doctors and Dr. Sturm is the best, I highly recommend him!
