Regional anesthesia; ambulatory and general anesthesiology
I am interested in areas relating to ambulatory anesthesia, regional anesthesia and postoperative pain management, in both the adult and pediatric populations. In the past year, I have become interested in the potnetial of combining complementary medicine techniques with our traditional pain management protocols to improve pain management, especially in those surgeries not amenable to regional anesthesia. I have organized meetings/presentations between our division and the Center for Integrative Medicine, and will be the coordinator for research efforts in our division resulting from this collaboration.
I continue to participate in the Clinical Ethics Committee, and continue to educate myself on ethical issues in clinical medicine, especially thoase related to anesthesiology.
This faculty member has no reported relationships with industry.
