Our fellowship-trained pain management doctors at our Spine Center of Excellence at Tri-County Orthopedics are recognized and respected experts in pain management for the back, neck, and spine.
A pain management doctor is specialized in providing conservative nonsurgical treatments to address the specific pain needs of a patient. Being that an orthopedic surgeon or spine surgeon can also treat pain that is associated with the musculoskeletal system, a pain management doctor can work alongside orthopedists and offer nonsurgical treatments, such as medication, injections, physical therapy, and other interventional conservative procedures to avoid or delay surgery.
Patients who suffer from chronic pain may visit their primary care physician's office first, though a referral is often made to an orthopedic or a pain management specialist for treatment. A specialist who undergoes additional specialized training through a fellowship is often referred to as a pain management specialist and is considered an expert in treating chronic pain of the back, neck, and spine.
If you're suffering from chronic pain, it may be time to visit a pain management doctor at Tri-County Orthopedics.
