Interventional Pain Management refers to surgical or needle-based treatments for pain. These treatments are sometimes used for diagnostic purposes, that is, to try and determine the cause of the pain, and sometimes are used for therapeutic purposes, that is, to try and reduce or eliminate the pain. Some of these procedures are able to both.
Interventional procedures can sometimes be done in the doctor’s office, and others need to be done in hospital or ambulatory surgery settings. We try and accommodate your scheduling requests whenever possible.
