Jacques  E.  Chelly, MD, PhD

  • ​Professor and Vice Chairman of clinical research for the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
  • Secondary appointment in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery
  • Director of orthoepdic anesthesia and acute postoperative interventional pain service at UPMC Shadyside

​Dr. Chelly is one of the foremost authorities in acute pain management, especially in orthopaedics. He is president of the Orthopedic Anesthesia, Pain and Rehabilitation Society and a leader in the use of nerve blocks in orthopaedic surgery, a procedure that allows a decrease in the use of morphine and other narcotic drugs which are often not well-tolerated by patients. These techniques also provide better post-operative pain control, allowing patients to recover function of their arms or legs faster.

A prolific author on the topics of orthopaedic anesthesia and acute pain management, Dr. Chelly has been the lead author and co-author on nearly 200 scientific articles and has given more than 100 presentations to national and international conferences and meetings.

He is the editor and co-editor of two medical books on nerve block techniques: Peripheral Nerve Block Technique: A Color Atlas, second edition, published by Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins in 2003, and Continuous Peripheral Nerve Block Techniques: An Illustrated Guide, published by Mosby in 2001.

He received his medical degree from Necker-Enfants Malades Medical School in Paris and did his anesthesiology and intensive care residency at Broussais Hospital in Paris. Dr. Chelly also holds a doctorate in pharmacology and a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Houston. He received a master’s degree in pharmacology from Lariboisiére-St. Louis Medical School in Paris and his undergraduate degree from Mont-Rouge College, also in Paris.
