His expert interventional pain management techniques include facet medial branch blocks and thermal or pulsed radiofrequency treatment for the management of pain arising from the cervical, thoracic or lumbar facet joints. For leg pains associated with nerve root impingement or sciatica he performs targeted nerve route injections/dorsal route ganglion blocks or transforaminal epidurals, and pulsed radiofrequency treatments. For painful shoulder, hip or knee joints he offers nerve injections and pulsed radiofrequency treatment as a measure to improve pain and increase function for those waiting for joint replacements, or afterwards for pain that can remain post-replacement.
