What is Interventional Pain Management?
Interventional pain management involves special procedures to treat and manage pain, which can include a numbing injection of an anesthetic medicine or steroid around nerves, tendons, joints or muscles; spinal cord stimulation; or a procedure with radio-frequency ablation or cryoablation to stop a nerve from sending pain signals for a long period of time. We aim to stop chronic pain as much as possible.
