Division of Interventional Pain Medicine
The newly formed Division of Interventional Pain in the Department of Orthopedic Surgery is dedicated to reducing pain and improving function. The division takes pride in its use of evidence-based, cutting-edge interventions, multidisciplinary approaches, and non-opioid therapies to help patients manage painful musculoskeletal and neurological conditions. Each patient is unique, and we pride ourselves in providing patient-centered care through the establishment of an accurate diagnosis and integration with other specialists to develop a personalized treatment plan. Each year, the division performs thousands of interventions including targeted spinal injections at all levels of the spine, radiofrequency ablations (including cooled ablation technology), joint and other musculoskeletal injections, regenerative and orthobiologic injections, discography, spinal cord stimulation trials and implants, and more. Our passion is improving pain and our mission is to provide world-class, cutting-edge pain management for the San Diego community and beyond.
