As an Interventional Pain and Regenerative Medicine physician, his mission is to decrease the use of chronic opioids and avoid major surgeries through the use of cutting edge minimally invasive techniques. He participates in medical conferences to stay up to date in the latest treatments available.
While he is doing procedures in our surgery center, he will also be spearheading our new Ketamine Infusion Therapy program as the program’s Medical Director. This program aims to provide an alternative therapy to our patients going through depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, breakthrough pain, CRPS, Fibromyalgia, and others.
Being very active and sporty himself, he believes in not just treating pain, but to improve the quality of life and function of his patients. His goal is to treat pain to keep his patients independent so that they may enjoy the pleasures of life.
