Interventional pain management is a medical subspecialty of pain medicine that diagnoses and treats pain with minimally invasive options that maximize pain relief and minimize the use of oral medications.
Modern Pain Solutions offer many pain-free, modern techniques to accommodate the patients individual plan of care. Interventional therapies for acute and chronic pain conditions as part of the comprehensive treatment program are most common. Many interventional pain procedures are available on an outpatient basis, which is vital to ensuring cost-effective access to care. Some minor interventional procedures can be performed in an office setting, while other more advanced procedures require special training and an ambulatory surgery center.
Here is a chart showing the degree of complexity of the interventional procedures that we provide to our patients suffering from chronic pain:
Interventional procedures are performed in an ambulatory surgery center (ASC) or office setting. These types of procedures are minimally invasive which implies that they are safe, quick, and allow the patient to return to their normal activities and routine by the next day. Some of the benefits to outpatient procedures in an ambulatory surgery center include:
- All procedures that involve a very small incision which results in less risk for infection and blood loss.
- Most procedures that we offer are either reversable or include a trial period. Typical traditional back surgeries or joint replacements can leave permanent damage with little relief to the precise area of pain.
- Most procedures performed in an ambulatory surgery center are more cost-effective than traditional surgeries.
- Minimally invasive procedures have a very little recovery period with substantial pain relief.
Modern Pain Solutions has a team of board-certified specialists that offer a wide variety of minimally invasive procedures designed to reduce pain and improve the function of our patients.
Types of Treatment
Common treatments include:
- Balloon Kyphoplasty
- Facet Fusion
- Interspinous Spacer Vertiflex
- Intracept Procedure
- Joint Injection
- Nerve Block

When treatments such as physical therapy and oral medication are not managing a patient’s chronic pain effectively, an injection, fusion, or other minimally invasive procedure may be necessary to provide a better level of pain relief. Modern Pain Solutions will use a combination of pain management methods in order to provide maximum relief for the longest period of time.
