Biography

Bio

As an interventional pain management specialist, I enjoy the privilege of working with patients to find avenues to improve their quality of life. I work in a multidisciplinary team diagnosing and managing chronic pain patients using a variety of interventional techniques.

Research Summary

Working with the Comprehensive Pain Institute, I've collaborated with other specialties to develop a chronic pain implantable electronic device program. We've completed a number of successful spinal cord stimulator implants and intrathecal drug delivery system implants. We've also performed the first peripheral nerve stimulator in the M Health Fairview system for both cancer and non-cancer chronic pain patients.
