Dr. Michael Kullman is BSSNY’s first board-certified anesthesiologist who specializes in managing patient pain levels before, during, and after surgical procedures. He will be working under BSSNY’S Center of Excellence for Interdisciplinary Pain Management, which consists of multiple providers of differing specialties, and will be providing the sedation for pain procedures.
