About Our Team
Pain Management doctors are specialists in treating painful conditions. These physicians focus on diagnosing and managing pain, studying what causes it, how the body reacts to it, how different medications reduce or eliminate the pain, and how others can be used to relieve many painful conditions.
Because of the vast scope of pain syndromes, the field management is a multidisciplinary subspecialty. Often, physicians from several other medical specialties work together to provide the greatest possible benefit for each patient.
This means we take a team approach to your treatment — with you as the lead member of the team.
We will work closely with physicians or health care professionals, such as a nurse case manager, you may already be seeing to treat your pain and/or underlying conditions that may be causing your pain.
We will work closely with physicians or health care professionals, such as a nurse case manager, you may already be seeing to treat your pain and/or underlying conditions that may be causing your pain. This may include your primary care physician, neurologist, oncologist, or physiatrist.
Our doctors may also refer you to other, non-physician specialists for additional care, such as physical therapy, psychological work hardening, occupational therapy or home health care. We will share information frequently with each of the other member team, to ensure that are all working together to provide you with the best possible relief of your pain.
