Personal Statement

I provide a full range of anesthesia care and offer regional anesthesia techniques (nerve blocks, spinal, or epidural anesthesia) to patients to help provide better pain control than traditional opioid-based therapy. For patients with anxiety about general anesthesia or those whose medical conditions are not ideal for general anesthesia, I can often suggest alternatives involving regional anesthesia techniques for certain surgical procedures.
