Chronic Pain Management Relief Specialists, Post Surgery Pain Expert, Beverly Hills, Los Angeles

Department of Pain Management

Chronic pain is an unfortunate fact of life for many people. However, with proper medical supervision and work with your pain management doctor, it is manageable. The Department of Pain Management at La Peer Health Systems has pain specialists, nurses, doctors and physicians who will work in a variety of ways to provide the utmost in patient care.

The goal of the Department of Pain Management is to take patients from initial consultation through diagnosis and onto primary treatment and/or surgery if necessary. We will be a constant presence through the pain management process and into aftercare as well. Many patients will return to La Peer for pain relief through minor procedures such as a lumbar epidural steroid injection or a selective nerve root block. These treatments often work for a few weeks or months at a time and with conditions like repetitive migraines a simple injection is well worth a bi-monthly trip.

The department of pain management is also highly concerned with research and clinical trials. Research into pain management for something like repetitive migraines is as important as finding a permanent method of relief for these patients. Depending on your condition and willingness, you may be able to take part in research and possibly make a step towards improving medicine forever.
