WHY I CHOSE PAIN INTERVENTION MEDICINE:
“I have worked with patients with acute and chronic spinal pain conditions for many years. An integral part of taking care of my patients is conservative nonsurgical treatments that can provide relief to avoid surgical intervention. I believe that it is prudent to use interventional pain management as an alternative to surgery. Using my knowledge of spinal surgery and combining it with conservative treatments give patients a well rounded approach to their care. It is important that patients be well educated in their pathology, what treatment options are available to them and realistic outcomes and expectations for them.”
