Abstract

I am as deeply inspired and humbled to receive this prestigious award, as I am profoundly indebted to the Bonica Award selection committee and the American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine Board of Directors for recognizing my contributions to the development, teaching, and practice of pain medicine in the tradition of Dr John J Bonica. I would also like to recognize my parents, Aura and Tito for providing me with the support and the environment to fulfill my professional goals. Moreover, the support that I have gotten from my team at the hospital, and the Chair of my Department, Dr Mark Lema needs to be underscored.
