The Center for Pain Medicine

The Center for Pain Medicine physicians have been treating patients with painful conditions since 1969. Each year we evaluate and treat thousands of patients. All of our specialists are Board-certified and certified in pain management, with advanced training in diagnosing and treating acute and chronic pain of the spine and musculoskeletal systems. We utilize state-of-the-art image guided techniques to ensure safety and accuracy. We specialize in a multidisciplinary approach to assessing and treating pain, which includes a full-time clinical psychologist who specializes in treating the psychological effects of dealing with chronic pain.

The Center for Pain Medicine accepts patient referrals from primary care physicians and specialists. We work with your physiscian in a team effort. Each new patient will have a comprehensive history and physical exam performed. Other tools such as pain scales, diagrams, and skeletal models will be used to help us thoroughly understand your pain.

Delivering quality care to our patients is our central focus. We adapt and develop the most creative solutions to deliver quality pain medicine. In an ongoing effort to provide the highest quality in pain medicine administration, we have voluntarily adapted the American Society of Anesthesiology’s Quality Guidelines. These measures represent factors that are unique to pain medicine practice and have been proven to be associated with high quality delivery of care.
