GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES

Since the Advanced Pain Treatment Center is an interventional pain management practice, most of the diagnosis is made or confirmed by interventional procedures. The procedures for treatment are performed under mild sedation so that patients are relaxed and able to cooperate during the procedure. Most of the time, the patients do not remember about the procedure. If the procedure is peformed for diagnostic reasons minimal to no sedation is administered. However all patients would typically have an intravenous line for safety purpose.

Procedures are performed either to treat the disease or to diagnose a painful condition. A procedure could be both diagnostic as well as for treatment.
