What They Treat
Physical Medicine & Interventional Pain offers a wide range of treatment options for patients experiencing acute and chronic pain. They treat conditions such as head and neck pain, cancer-related pain, musculoskeletal and spine pain, sports-related injuries, and continued pain following orthopaedic or spine surgery.
Their services include, but are not limited to, comprehensive evaluations for all pain-related conditions; interventional procedures for head, neck, spine and musculoskeletal conditions, in addition to spinal cord stimulation; and radio frequency ablation.
“We are excited to officially be seeing patients at our new location at Lincoln Center. This new Physical Medicine & Interventional Pain department was established to help a variety of people suffering from both acute and chronic pain,” said Bevard. “Pain is one of the most common reasons Americans access the health care system, and a leading cause of disability. To help combat this crisis, we have put in place a team of qualified providers with extensive training and experience in the management and treatment of pain. Together, our goal is to help improve the quality of life for people in the community who are suffering from pain-causing conditions.”
