Ann Bingham, MD; Assistant Professor

Ann Bingham, MD

Past Trainee-(Mentor: Matthew Abrahams, MD) Dr. Bingham received her MD from OHSU before beginning her residency training in our department in 2008. While supported by our T32 grant, she performed a meta-analysis of studies identified via a comprehensive systematic search comparing various outcomes of continuous peripheral nerve block catheters with single injection peripheral nerve blocks so as to better clarify and compare the risks and benefits of these procedures. This work led to a first author published abstract and a first author manuscript that is currently under review by Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine. She also received a resident travel award for her research abstract entitled "Continuous Peripheral Nerve Block Compared with Single Injection Peripheral Nerve Block: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials" that was accepted for poster presentation at the 2011 American Society of Regional Anesthesia Spring Meeting. Dr. Bingham completed her training in June 2011 and is currently engaged in a cardiothoracic anesthesiology fellowship at Columbia University. She is expected to return to OHSU for a faculty position in July 2012.
