Pain Treatment & Management

Northern California’s Premier Minimally-Invasive Spine Specialists

Pain Medicine Consultants is a local center of excellence in comprehensive pain medicine and minimally invasive spine care. We provide board-certified specialty care in the San Francisco bay area for all types of acute and chronic pain related conditions. We rely on a sophisticated combination of medications, interventional procedures, and wellness-based integrative techniques to insure that you ultimately are able to experience the maximum amount of long-term pain relief and maximal daily function.

Chronic pain has an insidious ability to wreak havoc on a person’s life if not treated promptly. Being in pain for a large percentage of the time causes people to stop doing things they want to do and stop relating to their loved ones in a rewarding fashion. Chronic pain can become the sole focus of a person’s life. If severe and unchecked, this process results in a downward spiral that ultimately can cause a person to have difficulty experiencing a meaningful life.

The specialty of pain medicine has a lot to offer most people when administered by compassionate and personable doctors. We specialize in a wide range of treatments including minimally invasive spine care, ultrasound guided joint injections and nerve blocks, minimally invasive lumbar decompression, sports injury recovery, complicated medication management, and integrative care options.

We believe it is important to be evaluated and treated promptly by a doctor who has significant expertise, which is focused specifically in the pain medicine field. Pain Medicine Consultants is the only regional pain specialty practice whose physicians have both trained at internationally renowned universities (Stanford, Harvard, and the Mayo Clinic) and have been awarded double board certifications by the ABMS.

We will develop and coordinate an individual treatment program for your pain, with the goal of improving your function and alleviating your pain. Our multidisciplinary and compassionate approach towards your treatment ensures that you will have the best chance to achieve both adequate pain relief and a return to full function in your life. We look forward to having you as our patient and promise to do our best to help you get back to the life you want to live.

We are interested and dedicated to treating patients in true pain and with other debilitating conditions. If you are such a patient, and are committed to working to get better, we are prepared to help you. If you have other intentions in mind, do not come to our practice. We are strongly opposed to any type of drug abuse and diversion and work hard to eliminate this possibility from our practice, and we will not hesitate to alert law enforcement in appropriate circumstances if we discover conduct in violation of law.
