Anna Pace, MD is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and Director of Transgender Headache Medicine Program. She is board certified in Neurology by the American Board of Neurology and Psychiatry and in headache and pain medicine by the United Council of Neurologic Subspecialities. Dr. Pace has a clinical practice at Faculty Practice Associates at The Mount Sinai Hospital, and is one of the founding members of the Low Pressure Headache Program at Mount Sinai. Her clinical focus includes migraine aura, headache in pregnancy and during lactation, and headaches in the transgender and gender-nonconforming community. She is dedicated to providing competent and compassionate care to meet the unique needs of her patients.
Dr. Pace is fellowship trained in headache and pain medicine and is proficient in administering botulinum toxin injections for migraine, nerve blocks, sphenopalatine ganglion blocks, and trigger point injections. She takes a collaborative multidisciplinary approach to headache management, incorporating both pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic methods in patient care.
Dr. Pace is passionately involved in medical education for students, residents, and physician colleagues across multiple departments. She was chosen to participate in the Harvard Macy Program for Post-Graduate Trainees: Future Academic Clinician Educators in 2017, and has utilized what she has learned to improve the educational experience for neurology residents in their headache clinics. She developed the neurology curriculum for the physician assistants working on inpatient neurology at Mount Sinai, and helped to coordinate the neurology residency curriculum as a chief resident, and the headache lecture series as a fellow. She is a small-group preceptor for the second year neurology course at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and currently gives lectures on headache medicine to the neurology residents and fellows.
Her work has been published in many neurology journals and she has presented at various conferences including the meetings for the American Headache Society, the Headache Cooperative of New England, the American Neurologic Association, and the American Academy of Neurology.
