Discover how our pain practice is different from others below!
HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT?
Our Anesthesia providers take the time necessary to review the patient’s medical history with their treatment plan to determine a personalized anesthetic plan. The Anesthesiologist will review medical history and pre-operative instructions before your procedure and address any questions you may have. During the procedure itself, your anesthesiologist will stay with you through the entire procedure. We are also readily available after the appointment should you or your family/caregiver have any additional questions.
Anesthesia in our procedural suite saves you time and naturally reduces anxiety. Procedures can be scheduled and accomplished more quickly in our office compared to surgical centers and hospitals. In addition, by providing Anesthesia services in our office, the patient is already familiar with the setting making the patient more comfortable.
Dr. Groysman, Dr. DeLillo, and their staff work hard to make sure each patient is comfortable and does not experience any pain or discomfort during their interventional pain management procedure.
Anesthesia services in our office procedural suite are a fraction of the cost when compared to the hospital and surgical centers. With high deductibles and facility fees, these options often cost more than our anesthesiologists’ fees. With the anesthesia there are no hidden fees, and most of the time, we accept only what the insurance company pays with no out-of-pocket expense to you.
Our highly trained Anesthesiologists have performed thousands of in-office In Office Anesthesia cases with specialized training in the management of special needs patients. We have the experience necessary to provide a safe anesthetic that is tailored specifically to both the patient and the pain interventionalist.
Our doctors have specialized office-based Anesthesia training. Vital signs are continuously monitored with state-of-the-art equipment. Monitoring including Pulse Oximetry, EKG, Blood Pressure, Respiratory Rate, End-Tidal CO2, Temperature, and Gas Analysis are all utilized.
What is Regenerative Medicine?
Traditional steroid injections have been used to treat pain for over 50 years. The steroid is deposited at the target site, thus reducing inflammation that causes pain. Steroids do not heal damaged tissue such as tendon tears, loss of collagen, and ligament looseness, however. Most types of tissue can be healed including some types of nerve damage. Injuries such as rotator cuff tears, biceps tendon tears, Achilles tendon tears, as well as arthritic changes in knees may be helped by regenerative medicine treatments. What is interesting is that PRP, amnion, and stem cells all decrease inflammation by modulating and controlling the response of the immune system rather than inhibiting the response like NSAID’s and steroids do. Regenerative medicine can restart the healing process even long after your body has forgotten about the injury. There are several regenerative products available:
For depression, you must still continue to take your current antidepressants. If you have uncontrolled high blood pressure, seizures/epilepsy, or angina/heart disease, please let the team at Southwest Pain Management know because ketamine may be contraindicated.
If your insurance has coverage for Spravato ketamine nasal spray, the providers may be able to offer you this spray in-office, which has been approved for medication-resistant depression.
Ketamine infusions are currently not covered by any insurance plan. Please note that you will have to pay out-of-pocket for these.
Ketamine treatments may be right for you. Come see the experts at Southwest Pain Management to discuss ketamine therapy.
