Biography

Bio

Regional anesthesia has long been an interest of mine. Currently, I am Director of the Regional Anesthesia and Ambulatory Medicine Fellowship and also involved with orthopedic and OB anesthesia as well as medical student education. My research is focused on the use of regional anesthesia and opioids on decreasing postoperative pain.
