Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Manohar "Untreated chronic pain can be very debilitating not only physically but also mentally.  Therefore pain needs to be treated and controlled early to minimize these declines.  A careful diagnosis as to why someone hurts is very important before any treatment can be successfully implemented.  A treatment program needs to consist of Medication management, Interventional procedures where indicated, Physical Therapy and exercise and proper Nutrition.

Over reliance on just one modality is usually ineffective.  We have all seen the devastating effects of just escalating opiates to control pain.  Sometimes Physical Therapy is not effective when pain is intense.  A balanced approach is therefore more effective and also appreciated by the patient.

Surgery should be a last resort to managing chronic pain.  As a fellowship trained interventional pain physician my goal is to minimize the need to proceed to surgery and to minimize the need for opiate pain medications  This approach not only leads to better long term outcomes for the patient but also lower medical cost."
