An excellent academic medical center in the northeast is hiring a new Division Director and additional neurology faculty for their world-class Neuromedicine Pain Management program. Candidates will build upon a high functioning, well established program in collaboration with the Chair and faculty of the Department of Neurosurgery. This Program was originally created within the Department of Neurosurgery in 2007 as a vehicle to build an integrated management program for a large volume of patients with chronic spinal and neuropathic pain, trigeminal neuralgia, spasticity and other neurological disorders requiring pain interventions and neuromodulation. A wide variety of therapeutic interventions include spinal cord and dorsal ganglia stimulation, placement of baclofen and morphine pumps, focal radiofrequency ablation, high frequency stimulation, intrathecal therapies, percutaneous rhizotomy in addition to medical management. Multidisciplinary patient management occurs organically with Neurosurgery faculty with subspecialty interests in spine and peripheral nerve surgery, trigeminal neuralgia, stroke and cerebrovascular diseases, surgery for movement disorders and epilepsy, neuro – oncology, brain and spinal trauma and pediatric Neurosurgery.
The program’s national and regional leadership owe to its integrated, outcomes driven approach to pain management delivered in close collaboration with eleven academic neurosurgeons supported by an extensive network of regional outreach clinics. The current team brings together clinicians from backgrounds in Neurology, Physical Therapy, Anesthesiology, and Nursing along with affiliate providers in pain psychology and rehabilitation specialties. There are presently nine investigator-initiated device and drug clinical trials focusing on chronic neuropathic pain and spinal disorders. A successful candidate will have the opportunity to pursue clinical research goals as well as practice with team of experienced clinicians.
