Trained in Vancouver and Ottawa, Dr. Jennifer Joo is an anesthesiologist at the South Health Campus and chronic pain physician at the Calgary Chronic Pain Centre. She works in a multidisciplinary Transitional Pain Service to help patients with complex pain navigate the perioperative period successfully. She is especially interested in screening for patients at risk of persistent post-operative pain and providing early physical, psychological, and pharmacological interventions. Dr. Joo works closely with patients on chronic daily opioid therapy to minimize short and long-term risk, often supporting them in opioid reduction and cessation strategies. She believes strongly in the concept of a perioperative surgical home that merges seamlessly with patients’ primary care home in the community.
