Get to Know Me

What are some of the specific conditions you treat?

Some of the specific conditions that I treat are cervical, thoracic and lumbar stenosis, as well as cervical, thoracic and lumbar radiculopathy, all conditions related to the spine including unsuccessful back and neck surgeries, arthritis, specifically osteoarthritis of the hip and knee but other osteoarthritis as well. I treat fibromyalgia as well as muscle and joint pain, pain associated with cancer, posttraumatic injury as well as pain from a work-related injury or nerve pain. I also treat spasticity as a result of multiple sclerosis or spinal cord injury.

What techniques or procedures do you use in your practice?

I use state-of-the-art techniques using fluoroscopy to help do nerve blocks to treat neck, back, leg pain as well as herniated disc. I do steroid injections into the hip as well as peripheral nerve injection to the knee to help people with knee pain related to failed knee surgeries or arthritis. At times, I may also use radiofrequency ablation to help alleviate neck and back pain.

What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?

I would like my patients to know that I use a multidisciplinary approach to help patients get better and improve. I do not just use one thing but a combination of different approaches to help the patient manage their pain. This has been proven to be the most successful for my patients.
