Interventional Pain Management
My philosophy is to treat chronic pain using a multidisciplinary approach, providing coordinated and effective care for even the most difficult pain conditions.
Why I Chose Medicine
My father, a professor at Polytechnical University, has always nurtured my interest in the technical sciences, physics, and mathematics, as did my mother, a structural engineer and architect. Both also avidly supported my native interest in biology and related subjects. I was always fascinated by technology and decided to devote myself to more human-friendly applications of the technological revolution, advancing the "arts of healing".
