Innovative Interventional Pain Physician
BEYOND YOUR PAIN
My philosophy for approaching Pain Management and treating my chronic pain patients is based on three pillars: listening, diagnosis and partnership.
Listening is one of the most important thing I do as a pain physician. Not only does it help me understand the suffering of my patients, the history of their pain often offers precious clues to a good diagnoses and effective treatment. Through the history and with the addition of physical examination and review of records and imaging, I strive to identify the likely pain generators.
The more precise a diagnosis, the more targeted and effective can a potential treatment be. Finally I see the implementation of a treatment plan as a partnership with my patients. While I can provide tools and treatments, I support my patient in being actively engaged into the improvement of their symptoms and functionality.
