About Our Practice
Pain management must be approached in a comprehensive manner involving interventional pain procedures, appropriate medications, physical therapy and counseling. Since I was trained at the MAYO CLINIC, the goal of my practice is to improve each patient's level of activity and quality of life.
This is a full scope progressive interventional pain management facility including facet blocks, epidural steroid injections, disc procedures, radiofrequency ablation, and spinal cord stimulators. Procedures are performed utilizing C-arm fluoroscopy (X-ray device)guidance to allow accurate and precise blocks, instead of "blind" procedures as performed by other physicians elsewhere.
Using fluoroscopy is safer for you, the patient, and guarantees that you are receiving the appropriate treatment. Research has shown that "blind" procedures are inaccurately placed 38% -78% of the time by experienced physicians, thus the patient only has a 12%- 62% chance to improve. This then requires patients to undergo numerous procedures by other "inaccurate" physicians before having the possibility of improving.
At The Pain Center of Kansas, our standard of care and results are higher than others. Patient care is performed at a very personal, compassionate, and private level with an emphasis placed on conservative, non-surgical treatments first.
