For September, the Member Spotlight shines on Brett J. Elmore, MD, who is an associate professor of anesthesiology and orthopedic surgery and the regional anesthesia and acute pain medicine fellowship program director at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.
“It is a pleasure to nominate Brett Elmore,” ASRA Pain Medicine Board Member Lynn Kohan, MD, said. “He is highly regarded for his commitment to teaching. He leads a highly regarded regional anatomy workshop and is actively pursuing opportunities to broaden the scope of these workshops to the ASRA Pain Medicine community.”
Dr. Elmore obtained his MD from the University of Alabama School of Medicine in Birmingham, completed his residency in anesthesiology at the University of Kentucky in Lexington, where he also was chief resident, and completed a regional anesthesia fellowship at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.

Dr. Elmore is a member of the ASRA Pain Medicine Physician Mentorship and Leadership Development Special Interest Group and has mentored several physicians newer to the field.
“He is a sought-after faculty member and a mentor to many. He is truly deserving,” Dr. Kohan said.
