Interventional Pain Management for Cancer Pain

Patients suffering from cancer pain have unique sources of pain that cannot be treated with the usual pain management interventions. Most patient suffering from cancer-related pain are only offered increasing doses of strong pain medications or complicated and dangerous devices such as implanted intrathecal pumps. What many patients and cancer physicians may not realize is that there are many interventional pain management procedures that can offer temporary and/or permanent pain relief for many cancer-related pain sources such as the back, chest, abdomen, and pelvic areas.

Because all cancer patients have complicated medical conditions, especially those undergoing chemotherapy or radiation therapies, we will work closely with a patient’s oncologist to make sure these procedures are timed and performed in the safest possible manner. These highly specialized procedures can often be used to treat cancer pain better than with strong pain medications or implanted devices.
