Statistics on Surgical Pain Treatment Options
Nine out of ten adults will experience back pain at some point in their life. For some of them, the pain will resolve on its own with home remedies like rest, heat/ice therapy, acetaminophen, or ibuprofen. But for others, the pain becomes chronic, as it stems from disease, injury, aging, or disc degeneration. For those patients, interventional pain management is required. Some pain doctors, like spine surgeons, suggest back surgery. But roughly 50% of back surgeries fail, and most require secondary and tertiary surgeries to withstand wear and tear. Less than 30% of secondary back surgeries are effective. Many patients develop Failed Back Surgery Syndrome, causing further complications.
Our Pain Management Specialists Have Better Solutions
That’s why Pain Treatment Specialists offers safer solutions with better results for lasting relief. In cases where back surgery is required, Pain Treatment Specialists can refer you to a top surgeon to improve your surgical outcome. But in most cases, we can help you skip surgery completely.

Interventional Pain Management is Our Gold Standard for Pain
Our pain doctors are highly trained in interventional pain management, learning at the top educational institutions and hospitals in the world. They are not only expert physicians, but also educators, medical textbook contributors, and frequent speakers at medical conventions. Doctors around the world look to them for insight on interventional pain management.
Why is interventional pain management our gold standard of care? Because it’s fueled by the most important medical concept- to do no harm to patients. Some doctors are willing to prescribe harmful treatments like ongoing opioid prescriptions and risky surgeries to quickly move patients through their schedule. But Pain Treatment Specialists takes the time to get to know each patient and investigate their unique makeup before diagnosing their condition.
The result is a targeted approach to back and neck pain relief that treats at the source, rather than systemically. We identify whether your pain stems from things like discs or nerve roots versus deformity or disease, and also whether it is referred from other areas like digestive or reproductive organs. We prevent complications, addiction, side effects, and surgery by supplanting outdated, generalized treatments with customized, innovative solutions.
