It is a privilege to provide peri-operative medical consultation and anesthetics for pediatric patients undergoing a wide array of diagnostic, interventional, and surgical procedures.  My clinical and research interests are in regional anesthesia and multi-modal analgesic regimens as they pertain to the quality of a child's recovery, persistent post surgical pain, and neurodevelopment.  My mission is to align my clinical and research interests as closely as possible, so that they may benefit patients in both the immediate and distant future.
