As a pain management fellow within the Department of Anesthesiology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, you learn interventional and multimodal approaches to managing a wide variety of acute and chronic pain conditions. The fellowship takes place at a busy pain management practice on the west side of Manhattan, which treats relatively common painful pathologies like radiculopathies and arthropathies to rare conditions like craniofacial neuralgias and complex regional pain syndrome.
You will receive extensive training in performing the following outpatient procedures: epidural steroid injections (interlaminar, transforaminal, caudal), epidural adhesiolysis, discography, medial branch blocks, radiofrequency ablations, joint injections (sacroiliac, hip, knee, shoulder, hand), trigger point injections, peripheral nerve blocks, craniofacial nerve blocks (trigeminal, occipital, sphenopalatine), stellate ganglion blocks, lumbar sympathetic blocks, superior hypogastric plexus blocks, ganglion impar blocks, kyphoplasties, spinal cord stimulators, and ketamine infusions.
Our fellowship also offers a robust didactic program, multidisciplinary rotations, and an inpatient pain consult service that sees patients with diverse pain conditions, including but not limited to postoperative, trauma, sickle cell crisis, and cancer.
Clinical training occurs at both Mount Sinai West and Mount Sinai St. Luke’s.
