Bio

My specialty is physical medicine and rehabilitation, or physiatry.  My clinical expertise includes the rehabilitation management of patients with significant brain injury due to trauma or stroke, spinal cord injury, and major multiple trauma. In addition, my practice specializes in simple as well as complex musculoskeletal impairments including extremity injuries, arthritis, and neck and back pain.  I am one of the few physicians in the Western New York area that is board certified in electro diagnostic medicine. As a result, I do electromyography (EMG) and nerve conduction velocity (NCV) studies on referral from physicians throughout Western New York.  Two additional procedures I perform are Botox injections for spasticity management after brain injury and spinal cord injury and prolotherapy.

Although I am passionate about the care I provide my own patients, I am concerned about securing the future of physical medicine and rehabilitation clinical services in Western New York. I am also interested in developing multi-specialty programs for individuals with significant injuries and chronic pain. I am the medical director for rehabilitation medicine in the Catholic Health System, which is one venue for this, but we need to expand this to other provider networks.
