Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Halperin "I practice interventional pain medicine and surgery, with an emphasis on the diagnosis and medical/interventional/surgical treatment of both acute and chronic pain. I perform diagnostic/therapeutic procedures such as nerve blocks and implant permanent devices into the body, such as spinal cord or peripheral nerve stimulators, morphine pumps, and other modalities to ablate pain. Interventional psychotherapy/counseling/outside referrals/adjunctive therapies are inclusive to my practice, which seeks to restore function not just to the patient, but to family and workplace as well."
