About

Bio

I completed a B.S. degree in Pharmacy in 1974, Ph.D. in Pharmacokinetics in 1979, M.D. from Wright State University in 1983 and two years in general surgery in Philadelphia in 1985. I then spent almost three years in the U.S.A.F. as a flight surgeon and chief of aerospace medicine. Following that, I entered and completed a 3-year residency in anesthesiology at the University of Indiana in 1992. Following that I entered into private practice of anesthesiology. I also began the process of taking educational courses for years until I was able to perform all of the current list of interventional pain procedures. Almost five years ago I moved my practice to the Tampa, Florida area. I ceased maintaining a pain management practice and focused on performing the minimally invasive spine procedures that I have been accomplishing for the last ten years. I am able to effectively treat axial spine pain whether in the neck, mid-back or low back along with headaches and extremity pain, tingling and numbness with these procedures. I do not find any significant return of the symptoms in most patients over the months and several years.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
