Pain Medicine Specialist
Pain Medicine is the medical discipline concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of the entire range of painful disorders. An Anesthesiologist who specializes in Pain Medicine provides a high level of care, either as a primary physician or consultant, for patients experiencing problems with acute, chronic and/or cancer pain in both hospital and ambulatory settings. Due to the vast scope of the field, Pain Medicine is a multidisciplinary subspecialty and patient care needs may be coordinated with other specialists.

A specialist in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, also called a Physiatrist, evaluates and treats patients with physical and/or cognitive impairments and disabilities that result from musculoskeletal conditions (such as neck or back pain, sports or work injuries), neurological conditions (such as stroke, brain injury, or spinal cord injury), or other medical conditions. Physiatrists have expertise in therapeutic exercise, medications, and injections for management of pain and spasticity; electrodiagnosis; prostheses (artificial limbs); orthoses (braces); and other equipment to assist daily activities, and coordinate treatment to help patients improve their physical, psychological, social, and vocational function.

From the Doctor:
I am a spine and nerve specialist and focus on helping people who are suffering from pain. I discovered my passion for reducing people’s pain when I was doing my residency and working with people who have spinal cord injuries like Christopher Reeve.
My goal is to work with you and your orthopedic doctor to ensure that you receive a successful result from your treatments.
