We’ll help put you back in the driver’s seat.
If you suffer from chronic pain and conventional methods of pain management have not brought relief, we can offer new avenues to pain reduction. Our clinic specializes in interventional pain management, a medical field that is devoted to the precise diagnosis and treatment of pain disorders by minimally invasive x-ray-guided techniques and surgeries. Most of these procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, involve only minor discomfort, and require little or no recovery time. Through the use of the most up-to-date technologies, we can help pave the way to a better quality of life.

How do we guide you down the road to relief?
The first step in navigating you toward improved health is to accurately locate the source of your pain and identify underlying factors that could influence your response to treatment.

Here’s a map of our process …

  1. Upon receiving a referral from your physician, we will thoroughly review the medical information provided by the referring doctor. Then we’ll call you to set up an appointment.
  2. During your initial visit, we will conduct a thorough assessment, including:
    • Gathering information from you about your medical history
    • Conducting a physical examination
    • Identifying any nonphysical factors that might be contributing to your pain
  3. Based on our evaluation, we will develop a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. Your plan might include such elements as:
    • Altering medications
    • Incorporating therapeutic exercise, by referring you to a chiropractor or physical therapist
    • Conducting a minimally invasive interventional procedure at our clinic
    • Referring you to other medical specialists such as surgeons, radiologists, neurologists, and oncologists to help implement aspects of your treatment plan.
    • Assisting you and your family in dealing with psychological or emotional issues related to your pain experience, by referring you to psychiatric services.
  4. We will thoroughly explain your diagnosis and treatment recommendations so that you are well-equipped to help implement the plan.
  5. We will discuss the treatment plan with your personal physician, who will remain involved with your care throughout the process.
