Procedures & Treatments
Types of Pain Management
Our board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians combine both interventional and integrative pain management techniques to relieve chronic and acute pain and discomfort.
Integrates complementary and alternative medicine into a treatment plan. Techniques such as laser therapy, acupuncture, psychiatry, nutrition and physical therapy are available to address chronic pain and to improve overall health.
Uses more traditional medical treatments to address pain, such as minimally invasive medical or surgical procedures that interrupt the nervous system’s transmission of pain messages from the nerve endings to the brain.
We offer a full spectrum of pain intervention – from acupuncture to implantable therapy.
Integrative Pain Treatments
Medical AcupunctureOne of the oldest healing practices in the world, acupuncture regulates the interconnections of the
neural system through the use of ultra-thin needles inserted through the skin.
Deep Tissue Laser TherapyWe are proud to be the first in the New Orleans area to offer this fast, affordable, painless in-office
procedure designed to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation and speed patient recovery.
Ketamine InfusionUtilizing low-dose infusions of a well-known anesthetic, this therapy provides a safe and effective source of relief for many patients with chronic pain syndrome, chronic migraines, as well as those suffering from treatment-resistant depression and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Interventional Pain Treatments
Epidural Steroid InjectionsThe injection of steroid medication into the epidural space of the spine can be used to relieve a variety
of painful conditions, including chronic back pain.
Medial Branch BlocksLocal anesthetic is injected near small nerves that feed out from the facet joints in the spine and carry
pain signals from the facet joints to the brain.
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)An electrical current produced by a radio wave creates heat energy and delivers it to target nerves that carry pain impulses.
DiscographyThis procedure uses imaging guidance to direct an injection of contrast material into the center of one
or more spinal discs to help identify the source of back pain.
Intrathecal Drug DeliveryA small device implanted beneath the skin delivers medication to the spinal cord through a catheter,
providing greater efficacy with a lowered risk of side effects.
Spinal Cord StimulationTiny electrodes positioned to interfere with pain signals are particularly effective for nerve pain and
often eliminate the need for medication.
Headache TreatmentOccipital Nerve Blocks and other alternatives to pharmacologic therapy help patients achieve pain relief and decrease the intensity and frequency of headaches.
