What to Expect

Following a comprehensive physical examination and thorough evaluation of your medical history, your Illinois Masonic Medical Center pain specialist will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan. The focus is on treating your pain and teaching you how to play an active role in managing it. The goal is to provide you with the confidence and independence you need to reduce pain and regain control of your life.

The duration and frequency of your treatment depends on your condition. Minor pain can often be treated in only a few visits, while those with chronic pain usually require an ongoing schedule of treatment.

Easing your pain is a collaborative effort between the pain management physician, your primary care physician and you. Our pain management physicians will:

  • Review treatment plan recommendations with you and your primary care physician
  • Personally monitor your course of treatment
  • Forward all medical records to your primary care physician

Our staff will educate you on the implications of pain in your daily life and explain how to manage discomfort at home.
