Dr. Freedman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Freedman "My name is Gordon Freedman, MD of Upper East Side Pain Medicine, a division of Anesthesia Associates of Boro Park (AABP). I am a Private Practice Pain Management Specialist, practicing medicine for 32 years with a main office on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Recently I have started seeing Pain patients in an office at 220 Westchester Ave in White Plains and still have office hours in Astoria, Queens. I was the Associate Director of the Mount Sinai Medical Center Pain Management Division of the Department of Anesthesiology for 12 years and then a Partner and founder of Upper East Side Pain Medicine PC, in Manhattan, for 11 years, before joining AABP. I am an Associate Clinical Professor, Department of Anesthesiology, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and board certified in Anesthesiology and Pain Management. I have been a member and held leadership positions in the American Society of Anesthesiologists, the International Spinal Injection Society, the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, the Eastern Pain Association, the New York State Society of Anesthesiologists, and the New York Society of Interventional Pain Physicians. As an invited speaker, I have lectured nationally and internationally on a wide range of Pain Management topics, including cancer pain management, opioid analgesia for acute and chronic pain management, lower back pain management, spinal cord stimulation, neuropathic pain management, pain management for wound care and reflex sympathetic dystrophy. I am the author of several book chapters on various topics in Pain Management and Anesthesiology and of numerous articles appearing in publications such as Anesthesiology, The American Journal of Surgery, Regional Anesthesia, and The Mount Sinai Journal of Medicine. I have regularly been listed in New York Magazine's list of Top Doctors for Pain Management; the Castle Connolly Guide of Top Doctors of New York, as well as their Top Doctors of America; and New York Super Doctors in the New York Times Magazine Section. My practice utilizes both invasive and non-invasive Pain Management modalities, including epidural steroid injections, facet injections/ radiofrequency lesioning, sacroiliac joint injections, sympathetic nerve blocks, cancer pain nerve blocks, Botox injections for headaches, etc. I would like to help in keeping all patients as comfortable as possible."
