Now Offering Interventional Pain Management

When you’re in pain, it can be difficult to focus on anything else. With our new interventional pain management services, our goal is to decrease or eliminate your pain, so you can get back to doing what you love. Interventional pain management uses minimally-invasive techniques and procedures to identify and treat the root cause of your pain. We treat the following conditions:

  • Back pain, especially lower back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Buttock pain
  • Sciatica
  • Leg pain
  • Knee pain
  • Arm pain
  • Pain when walking
  • Headaches
  • Post-surgical pain
  • Post-trauma pain
  • Pain from sports, work, or car injuries

Depending on the severity and condition of your pain, we offer a variety of treatments to get you feeling like your active self:

  • Nerve blocks and injections provide temporary pain relief using an epidural steroid injection or other common injections — including facet joint injections, single nerve root blocks, and sacroiliac joint injections.
  • Neuroablation — also called radiofrequency rhizotomy or radiofrequency ablation — uses X-ray guidance and a needle with an electrode at the tip that becomes heated to temporarily turn off a nerve’s ability to send pain messages to your brain.
  • Electrical stimulation implants a stimulator along with an electrical lead to send electrical pulses directly to the spinal cord to regulate your pain.
