Why I chose interventional Pain Medicine

“As an Anesthesiologist I was always intrigued with the pain management aspect of the patient. The more I became involved with the continuous care of a patient in chronic pain, the more I was able to alleviate their suffering, especially through the difficult times. The most satisfying reward is when a patient tells me that I have made a positive different in their daily life. ”
