What is Interventional
Pain Management?

Interventional pain care patients at Suburban Orthopaedic Medical Center, in Newark New Jersey, are given a thorough evaluation to determine the source of their pain, and medically-responsible treatment plans are tailored for each patient. If medication is prescribed, patients are educated on its use and required to agree to strict guidelines.

Interventional Pain Medicine is a relatively new medical specialty that provides diagnosis and treatment to patients with all types of pain. The majority of patients referred to pain specialists are those whose pain has been stubborn and has failed to respond to the normal and standard medical treatments offered by their primary care physicians or other specialists (such as, orthopedic surgeons, family practitioners, oncologists, etc.) Patients with pain related to many common chronic or acute illnesses such as back pain, diabetes and other forms of nerve injuries, cancer related pain, and post-operative or injuries after an accident, benefit from the expertise that a pain specialist can offer.

An interventional pain anesthesiologist should be double board certified in both anesthesiology and pain management. This extra training provides these doctors with a highly specialized understanding of the diagnosis and treatment of disorders that cause all types of pain. Interventional Pain specialist can treat all levels of pain through minimally invasive techniques such as injection therapy, radiofrequency ablation or spinal cord stimulation. Interventional pain anesthesiologists provide treatments such as epidural steroid injections, nerve blocks, radiofrequency ablation, spinal cord stimulation, facet joint injections, lumbar sympathetic plexus blocks, and trigger joint injections. All procedures are done on an outpatient basis.
