More than 70 million Americans suffer from chronic pain and each year another 25 million have acute pain from injuries or surgery. At AdventHealth Pain Medicine, we understand pain and know that most pain can be greatly eased with proper pain management. 

Delivering quality care to our patients is our central focus. We adapt and develop the most creative solutions to deliver quality pain medicine. In an ongoing effort to provide the highest quality in pain medicine administration, we have voluntarily adapted the American Society of Anesthesiology’s Quality Guidelines. These measures represent factors that are unique to pain medicine practice and have been proven to be associated with high quality delivery of care.

Advanced Treatment Treatment Options

Radio Frequency Ablation
RF is a non-surgical, minimally-invasive, non-narcotic method for treating chronic knee or hip pain. Because it can be performed in an outpatient setting, patients have the potential to return to an enhanced quality of life much sooner than with surgery—and with a reduced need for narcotics.

Nevro Approach—Alternative Spinal Cord Simulation
AdventHealth Pain Medicine is proud to offer Nevro’s innovative HF10 therapy as an alternative to traditional SCS treatment. HF10 therapy is proven to provide more relief from chronic back and leg pain without the discomfort of tingling or unexpected shocks found in traditional SCS treatment.

A Referral for Pain Management

AdventHealth Pain Medicine accepts patient referrals from primary care physicians and specialists. We work with your physician in a team effort. Each new patient will have a comprehensive history and physical exam performed. Other tools such as pain scales, diagrams, and skeletal models will be used to help us thoroughly understand your pain.
