As a pediatric anesthesiologist, my main focus each day is to provide safe, highly reliable, efficient and compassionate care to my patients.
My clinical interests include acute pain management and using regional anesthesia to help reduce pain and improve functional recovery for children following major surgery. I am interested in novel ultrasound-guided regional techniques and their application in multimodal pain regimens for procedures such as pectus deformity repair and complex urogenital surgeries.
I am also interested in the use of ultrasound to access a child’s blood vessels and other point of care applications in the operating room. Ultrasound allows direct visualization of various body systems and can give important information to the clinical team before, during and after surgery. These applications allow me, and the surgical team, to provide safe and advanced care.
In my free time, I play fiddle throughout Greater Cincinnati in a local bluegrass band called Moonshine Drive.
