WHY DID YOU CHOOSE TO WORK IN PAIN MANAGEMENT?

I worked in anesthesiology for more than 20 years before I was led to the field of pain management. For me, it’s a means to help patients in chronic pain by reducing discomfort and maximizing function. Each human experiences pain and all should have access to quality Christian care.

WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST CHALLENGES OF THIS FIELD OF MEDICINE?

Medicine and pain management in particular are advancing rapidly. As new technologies emerge, we must strive to incorporate new interventional techniques. Using these advancements will help us continue to diminish pain and maximize function for our patients, while also limiting undesirable medication side effects.

WHAT’S ONE THING THAT HAS SURPRISED YOU ABOUT WORKING AT ALLIANCE SPINE AND PAIN?
