Dr. Gallagher was born and raised in New York City and became interested in pain management as a result of her experience as a first responder on 9/11. Seeing firefighters and police officers being wheeled into the trauma unit at St. Vincent’s Hospital, she knew that pain would linger long after their wounds healed. Dr. Gallagher is committed to treating pain following sports injuries or accidents, or resulting from disease, surgery, aging, and congenital conditions using a variety of treatments, including spine and joint injections. After thorough examination and testing, several options may be used individually or together with the goal of decreasing and potentially eliminating pain.
Dr. Gallagher has trained at some of the top medical institutions in the country. She is a contributing author to several books that are classics in the treatment of pain. Most recently she published a chapter that is included in Peripheral Nerve Entrapments: Clinical Diagnosis and Management.
In her spare time, Dr. Gallagher is an avid runner and enjoys traveling and photography.
