Conditions We Treat

The goal of the Interventional Pain Management clinic is to help manage acute and chronic pain in cancer patients and to improve quality of life through the treatment of pain as a disease rather than a symptom.

Several conditions are routinely evaluated and successfully treated in our clinic, including but not limited to:

  • Facial pain from head and neck cancer (trigeminal nerve blocks and radiofrequency)
  • Injury to nerves in arms and legs by tumor (spinal cord stimulators)
  • Complex regional pain syndrome, also known as RSD
  • Low back and neck pain (minimally invasive spine interventions such as Epidurals, Facet blocks, etc.)
  • Headache
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Pain in the chest wall (intercostal nerve blocks and radiofrequency)
  • Pain from poor circulation in the legs (spinal cord stimulation)
  • Intractable pain from cancer that has spread- (pain pumps, steroid injections)
  • Pain of pancreatic cancer and other tumors of the abdomen (celiac plexus neurolysis and pain pumps)
  • Pain after surgical incisions - radiofrequency ablation
  • Pain in hands and feet- peripheral neuropathy- from chemotherapy (medications, pain pumps, spinal cord stimulators)
  • Palliative care of advanced/terminal cancer pain (comprehensive care of patients at end-of-life stage, including integrative and psychosocial medicine)
  • Chronic pain after shingles
  • Pain after breast surgery – Postmastectomy syndrome (intercostal nerve blocks and radiofrequency ablation)
