Dr. Khelemsky works as an anesthesiologist, teaches medical students, residents, and fellows, takes care of hospitalized patients with postoperative pain and other complex pain syndromes, and practices interventional pain medicine in the Mount Sinai Faculty Pain Management Practice.
Interventional pain procedures are performed either in the office (which houses a state of the art fluoroscopy suite) or in the main hospital operating rooms. These procedures may be used to diagnose the source of the pain, as well as provide pain relief.
Dr. Khelemsky is the Associate Program Director of The Mount Sinai Medical Center Pain Medicine Fellowhisp Program and serves on the Board of Directors of the New York Society of Interventional Pain Physicians.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
Dr. Khelemsky did not report having any of the following types of financial relationships with industry during 2014 and/or 2015: consulting, scientific advisory board, industry-sponsored lectures, service on Board of Directors, participation on industry-sponsored committees, equity ownership valued at greater than 5% of a publicly traded company or any value in a privately held company. Please note that this information may differ from information posted on corporate sites due to timing or classification differences.
Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website at http://icahn.mssm.edu/about-us/services-and-resources/faculty-resources/handbooks-and-policies/faculty-handbook. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
