Physicians and Advance Practice Nurses specially trained in interventional pain management provide outpatient treatment to relieve chronic pain, restore function, and decrease or eliminate the need for prescription pain medications. Chronic pain is ongoing pain lasting beyond the normal healing time for an injury or illness, which adversely affects well-being and quality of life.
Patients are accepted by referral from their primary care or specialty physician. Because chronic pain is often associated with underlying medical conditions, our program is specifically designed to integrate and coordinate pain management with any other ongoing treatment. The Pain Management Clinic communicates with primary care and/or referring physicians the progress and outcome of pain management treatment for all patients referred for care.
Insurance coverage for pain management procedures may vary between medical plans. Patients should consult their insurance carrier to verify eligibility or ask the Clinic staff for assistance with insurance verification before scheduling appointments and/or procedures.
