I am an anesthisologist and pain management specialist who cares for people facing the side effects of cancer treatment. My philosophy is to treat the whole patient, not just the disease. I find that this is best achieved by considering the individual challenges that each person faces when fighting cancer. 

I draw upon my training and experience to help patients deal with pain and ensure that their quality of life is the best it can be. When caring for patients, I incorporate noninvasive methods, such as physical therapy and medications, as well as procedures, such as injections. 

Currently, my research interests are in applying various techniques, such as nerve blocks and ablations, to minimize the side effects of medication. I take great satisfaction in helping my patients find relief so that they can stop hurting and start living again.
