I am double board-certified in anesthesiology and pain management. I see patients at MSK Commack, on Long Island, for their chronic cancer-related pain. I also provide anesthetic care for surgical procedures in the operating room at MSK’s hospital in New York City. I am a clinician-educator for medical students, residents, and fellows who rotate through our service.
My clinical areas of interest are interventional pain management of cancer-related pain and cancer treatment-related pain. I focus on using nerve blocks, cryotherapy, radiofrequency ablation, neurolysis, nerve stimulation, and intrathecal drug delivery for best pain control. I work with other members in our division to research and create new evidence-based paradigms to treat chronic cancer-related pain. My academic interests also include perioperative pain management and preventing the formation of chronic pain through neuraxial and regional anesthesia.
