Dr. Jeffrey Y. F. Ngeow first came to Hospital for Special Surgery from Yale New Haven Medical Center in 1987. Soon after arriving he started the Pain Management Service, which has since developed into the Division of Pain Medicine within the Department of Anesthesiology. It now includes seven board certified pain specialists who attend over 6,500 patient visits per year at the Pain Management Center at HSS.
Dr. Ngeow also co-founded the Tri-Institute Pain-Fellowship training program which encompasses Hospital for Special Surgery, New York Hospital and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Since 1996 Dr. Ngeow has expanded his interest in interventional pain treatments by adding acupuncture to his practice. He is certified for acupuncture practice in New York State. He is currently involved with ongoing research in the effectiveness of platelet rich plasma injection and prolotherapy as complements to modern methods in different painful musculoskeletal conditions.
