Cooper University Physician
As a pain management specialist, I believe in taking a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach when treating acute and chronic pain. I utilize all resources available when treating pain. These include but are not limited to interventional techniques, physical therapy, acupuncture, medical management, and others.
As the Division Head I oversee a group of physicians, APNs, residents, fellows, and office staff at the Cooper Pain Management Center. I started an ACGME-accredited Multidisciplinary Pain Medicine Fellowship Program here at Cooper where residents can receive the proper training to become a board-certified pain medicine physician. This ACGME accreditation ensues that we treat all types of pain and perform all of the state-of-the-art interventional pain management procedures offered in modern medicine.
