My clinical practice primarily focuses on back and neck pain, neuropathic pain and cancer related pain. I employ both technological advances and my 18 years of experience of pain management practice to provide effective pain relief for chronic pain. The technologies that I focus on include various minimally-invasive spinal injections for back and neck pain, surgically placed indwelling pumps for spinal drug delivery, and neuromodulation therapy with the spinal cord stimulation technique for chronic pain.
The most common cause of disability among younger workers is low back, neck, and upper or lower extremity pain. Minimally invasive, fluoroscopy-guided spinal injections provide pain relief for many of these patients. Further, decreased pain facilitates physiotherapy and improves functionality in patients with common spine disorders.
Spinal cord stimulation is a non-neurodestructive and reversible technique that is extremely helpful in treating refractory neuropathic pain. It has been shown to provide excellent pain relief for patients with persistent pain after back surgery, complex regional pain syndrome and other peripheral neuropathic pain conditions.
I am an investigator at the MGH Center for Translational Pain Research (CTPR). My research focus has been on advanced interventional pain management techniques. At the CTPR, I am currently the principal investigator for five IRB-approved research projects focused on understanding the science behind how spinal cord stimulation therapy reduces pain.
