The Center for Pain Management at WDH is located on the third level of the Ambulatory Building (South Entrance) and offers patients more privacy in a spacious setting, including private rooms with flat-screen television. Natural light fills the rooms through windows, providing a relaxing atmosphere.
Open five days a week (Monday-Friday), the Center offers multiple therapies to relieve chronic pain beginning with the least invasive. The goal of the Center is to relieve pain and reduce or eliminate pain medications the patient may be taking. Some of the conditions treated include: pain in the arms, legs, lower back and neck, cancer pain and pain that has persisted despite surgery, and chronic disorders such as Shingles, Fibromyalgia, and Diabetic Neuropathy. While the majority of pain can typically be controlled by physical therapy and non-steroidal medications, some patients whose pain has continued despite these measures may find relief with more aggressive treatment at the Center.
Interventional pain management services for inpatients and outpatients include Medication Pump Refills, Epidural Steroid Injections, Radiofrequency Lesioning, Cryoablation, Trial Spinal Stimulators, and IV Regional Blockades, in collaboration with the physicians from Seacoast Pain Institute.
