About Me

I am both a board certified anesthesiologist and chronic pain specialist who specializes in treating cancer related pain syndromes.  I devote my time to helping improve quality of life through pharmacotherapy and interventional pain treatment options.  My academic interests include using ultrasound  technology to treat painful conditions (high intensity focused ultrasound).  I am also involved in education and training for our future pain specialists both as part of our institution and at academic societies.
