FOR PHYSICIANS


We can help you provide improved care to your patients.
About 86 million adults in the US suffer from chronic pain — and for many, conventional methods of pain management do not provide relief. For these patients, we offer new options. Our clinic specializes in interventional pain medicine, which is a field devoted to the precise diagnosis and treatment of pain disorders by fluoroscopically guided techniques and minimally invasive surgeries.

Getting to the root of the problem

After a physician referral, we conduct a thorough assessment of the patient to pinpoint the cause of the pain. This includes:

  • Reviewing patient information and imaging studies (MRI, CT, x-ray).
  • Conducting a complete history and physical examination.
  • Using x-ray-guided diagnostic nerve blocks and/or discography to better define the source of pain.
