For patients suffering from chronic pain, the Pain Management Clinic at Advocate Christ Medical Center offers a full range of pain reduction treatments. From spinal facet syndrome to herniated disc pain to fibromyalgia to failed back syndrome, patients receive the most current treatments available.
Our multidisciplinary team of board certified pain management physicians, certified pain management nurses, and an advanced practice nurse certified in pain management, provide advanced treatments in a compassionate, caring environment. Depending upon each patient’s condition, our physicians customize treatment plans to include procedural therapies and/or medication.
Patients benefit from the most current diagnostic technologies and treatments available, including epidural steroid injections and radiofrequency ablation.
Pain management specialists use imaging-guided fluoroscopy to more effectively and safely inject medications into the joints, nerve roots and epidural space. This provides better results and reduces the risk of complications.
The pain management clinic also collaborates closely with a board certified psychiatrist who has a special interest in working with patients experience chronic pain.
