My Passion for Healthcare

During my residency training I noted that pain was a common denominator and complaint that crossed multiple diagnoses from musculoskeletal back and neck pain to spinal cord and traumatic brain injury to amputation. That pain was often associated with functional decline and a decrease in quality of life. I wanted to help patients attain their highest and most productive functional level and to enjoy a full and productive life. For me, the only option was to seek further training in the form of a fellowship in Pain Management so that I could provide the best in quality care.

My Clinical Focus

I see patients with a variety of pain complaints that cross the continuum from acute to cancer to chronic pain, including back and neck pain to complex neuropathic conditions such as RSD/CRPS and diabetic neuropathy. Pain is a complex experience influenced by biological, psychological and sociological factors. Pain is an individual experience and therefore a "cookbook" approach will not provide optimal results. Treatment options have to be individualized for each patient, focusing not only on improvement in the patient's report of pain but also their functional status and quality of life.
