Chronic pain takes its toll on its victims in a physical, psychological and functional manner. Pain can negatively affect sleep, disrupt family relationships, cause poor work performance and put a strain on oneís entire lifestyle.

We can help with ìtailor-made,î comprehensive treatment programs to meet particular medical and personal needs.

Our philosophy is to keep patients pain-free, alert, functional and to avoid narcotics as much as possible. We accomplish this with up-to-date diagnostic and treatment techniques.

Our approach is to use various x-ray-guided injections in a modern operating room. We also use sedation whenever possible to reduce the pain and anxiety of the procedure. We are committed to providing the latest in effective diagnosis and treatment.
