Patient Care Philosophy

Pain management in cancer patients should be patient focused. It is important for patients to understand why they are experiencing pain as not all pain is caused by cancer. Successful pain management requires a team approach between all who are involved in care and requires a long-term commitment to care. Most importantly, this must include the patient.

Research Interests

Acute pain management, cancer pain management and regional anesthesia.
