I believe that good medicine starts with a compassion for people and a mind to serve those in need… I began my journey into medicine as an electrical engineer. Intrigued by radiofrequency transmission systems and cartilage regeneration, I completed graduate study focusing on nanoparticles and mechanokinetic device design. I ventured into medicine with a mind geared towards research in pediatric outcomes and improving the anesthesia delivery and monitoring systems designed for smaller patients. My interests in quality improvement associated with regional anesthesiology for pediatric patients, led me to serve as the Principal Investigator for the national Pediatric regional anesthesia network (PRAN) at Texas Children’s Hospital, with a focus on improving pediatric regional anesthesia drug delivery and quality outcomes. As a pediatric regional anesthesiologist and pain management specialist it is my aim to advance the practice of regional anesthesia and pain medicine in infants and children through safe and efficacious drug delivery. The incorporation of new peripheral nerve blocks brings both excitement and responsibility among anesthesiologists. My expertise in regional anesthesiology has permit me to transcend the perioperative environment and form a collaborative network that enhances pain delivery streams for a multitude of children in the oncology and hematology realm. Equally important to the advancement of pediatric pain medicine is my role as an educator. Along the course of my anesthesiology faculty development, I have taken an active role in the teaching of medical students, residents and fellows through curriculum development, lecture series, workshops and interactive small-group teaching sessions. I am committed to advocating for student education while upholding the highest standards of medical care. I look forward to enhancing the practice of pediatric anesthesiology in continuing to learn from and with medical students, resident-physicians, and colleagues, reviewing the best practices and critically assessing the present standards with evidence-based medicine.
