What We Do

Our physicians practice Interventional Pain Medicine which focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of pain by applying minimally invasive techniques that target structures mediating pain. The goal of Interventional Pain Medicine is to reduce or eliminate pain and to help patients quickly return to their daily activities without heavy reliance on medications.

Diagnose

Diagnostic procedures are performed to help determine the source or cause of pain.

These procedures generally involve introducing a needle at the location of a nerve which supplies a painful area and are usually performed under x-ray guidance to precisely locate the position of the probe or needle. These procedures or "blocks" attempt to briefly numb the nerves or structures thought to be involved in mediating the pain and are performed under local anesthesia.

These procedures are most commonly used in the diagnosis of spine-related pain such as low back pain, thoracic or neck pain. The primary goal of diagnostic interventions is to decide if the particular area is involved in the generation of pain.

Common Conditions

Treat

Therapeutic procedures attempt to take results from diagnostic interventions and produce long-term relief of pain by applying chemicals, heat, cold or use surgical procedures that inhibit nerve impulses.

These interventions include epidural steroid injections, facet joint injections, nerve blocks, peripheral nerve blocks, spinal cord stimulation and several others.

Let us Explain

Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative Medicine is a special treatment offered at Albany and Saratoga Center for Pain Management. Our doctors are specially trained in the use of Stem Cell Technologies, Amniotic Growth Factors, Exosomes, PRP, and Visco-supplementation (Gel).

Let our physicians help determine what would be best to fit your needs and budget. This is an ever-evolving field of medicine and many treatments do not have traditional insurance coverage.

Many are covered by insurance as are your consultation and follow-up visits.
