acute pain

Acute (short-term) Pain Services

Controlling pain both during and after surgery contributes to the healing process and can get you up and moving sooner. Good pain control will also reduce the amount of pain medication needed so that you can avoid their side effects and have a better, faster recovery.

Not all pain is the same and everyone has a different tolerance level. Through prompt, open communication with you and your surgeon, Keystone Pain Consultants assist with pain management and provide you with techniques and support so you feel equipped to deal with the recuperation period.

Chronic Pain Services

Successful pain management means something different for every patient, whether it’s avoiding invasive surgery or just being able to concentrate better. After fully evaluating your situation, we develop a comprehensive treatment plan that will help you regain control of your life.

With today’s advances in research and technology, chronic pain can be effectively managed and possibly even eliminated. We offer a range of medical therapies and interventional pain management procedures to help you to better manage your persistent pain.

Individualized Treatment Plan

At Keystone Pain Consultants we believe that open communication enables us to connect with each patient and understand their unique pain experience.

After a thorough assessment, our fellowship-trained specialists develop a comprehensive pain program that includes procedures, medication, and/or a combination of therapies to help bring about a successful and long-term patient outcome.


Treatment Goals

Using the latest diagnostic technology, paired with traditional and innovative medical and interventional therapies, we work with you to identify the source of your pain and effectively manage it. Our safe, proven treatments help those with chronic pain return to a normal, productive lifestyle.
