Patient Care Philosophy
To improve pain and impaired function, neurobiological as well as psychosocial mechanisms need to be addressed that are unique for every patient. It is my great motivation to partner with patients in this process of recovery and healing from chronic pain.
Spending time with family and friends, reading, traveling and sports.
I work with patients who have various types of chronic pain, having special interest in musculoskeletal and spinal pain, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome and neuropathic pain. I believe in combining treatments that are based on cutting edge technology with those that require more active patient participation.
I am currently interested in scientifically studying effectiveness and mechanisms of compassion and mindfulness cultivation in the management of various types of chronic pain.
