Eellan Sivanesan, M.D. is Director of Neuromodulation, Assistant Professor, and a Clinician-Scientist at The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. He treats patients with cancer, back, joint, facial, neuropathic, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), post-amputation, and complex pain conditions at the Blaustein Pain Treatment Center. He is an active committee member of the International Neuromodulation Society (INS), the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine (ASRA), the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP) and the North American Neuromodulation Society (NANS). He specializes in advanced interventional techniques including neuromodulation with Dorsal Root Ganglion (DRG) stimulation, peripheral nerve stimulation (PNS), field stimulation, craniofacial stimulation and intrathecal drug delivery systems (IDDS). In the laboratory, his overlapping research investigations are aimed at discovering the mechanisms of action involved in pain relief with electrical stimulation, particularly for cancer pain conditions such as chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy.
