About Our Practice

I am a pain management physician whose main goal is to decrease pain and increase function. As an interventional pain physician, my first obligation is to properly diagnose the patient's pain generator. Once the cause of the pain is satisfactorily determined, I am able to use corrective measures such as percutaneous discectomy (DeKompressor or nucleoplasty) or percutaneous placement of bone cement (vertebroplasty). For discography proven painful discs I perform procedures such as DiscTRODE or IDET.

When corrective measures are not available, I will decrease the pain response using neuromodulation (dorsal column stimulator, intrathecal narcotic pumps, epidural infusion devices), nerve destruction/ablation (radiofrequency, cryoanalagesia) and therapeutic injections (steroids, local anesthetics, synvisc).

As a medical director, I understand the benefits of coordinated pain management and take a multidisciplinary approach to the care of the patient.
