About Me

I am a fellowship-trained and board-certified pediatric anesthesiologist with expertise in pediatric regional anesthesia and pediatric pain management. Although I care for patients of all ages, I specifically focus on providing state-of-the-art care tailored to the unique needs and distinct physiology of infants and children.   

In addition to my clinical work, I participate in research that concentrates on the perioperative use of regional anesthetic techniques, particularly ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve blocks, in order to decrease the amount of opioid-based analgesic medications consumed by children during and after surgery. By investigating the use of these regional anesthetic techniques, as well as other multimodal analgesic regimens, I hope to demonstrate a decrease in the need for opioid-based medications and, therefore, a subsequent decrease in associated side effects, leading ultimately to improved comfort and safety for all of our young patients.

Most major health insurers offer plans that include MSK as one of their in-network providers. If MSK is in-network, it means all our doctors are too. Medicaid and New York State Medicare also provide benefits for care at MSK.
