We Care about making you feel better 

Pain management is our specialty and we are concerned with the prevention, evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of painful disorders.  The diagnosis relies on a through history and pain-orented physical examination, including interpretation of diagnostic test, and may require spcialized diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.  

The pain specialist serves as a conusltant to primary care, neurosurgical, and other physicians and consultants.  They provide directed treatment such as medications, use of phusical therapy, pain relieving procedures, which may be diagnostic as well, and then return the patient back to the care of the referring phusician.

Sometimes it is not possible to completely eliminate all of the patient's pain.  Our goal, however, is to provide functional restoration so that patient may resume as much of a normal life as possible.
