Pain Management

Pain management focuses on improving your overall well-being and function while reducing pain. Treatment follows a customized plan that addresses your individual needs and health conditions.

What is interventional pain management?

Interventional pain management is a specialized type of pain management that is typically considered when other pain management techniques aren’t providing relief. It involves using minimally-invasive procedures that target the source of pain directly (nerves, joints or tissues) to provide more targeted and precise relief.

Our pain management procedures may take place in a hospital procedure room or in an operating room with an interventional pain medicine trained anesthesiologist using advance technology to guide certain procedures. These outpatient procedures often involve injections or other techniques to block pain signals, reduce inflammation and promote healing.
