Interventional Pain Management and Facilities

Our philosophy is to help our patients become either pain free, or
at least decrease their pain considerably and therefore allow
them to restore their functionality as soon as possible.

Typically this is achieved via comprehensive interdisciplinary  
management, i.e., prompt, early Pain Intervention, focused
Physical Therapy and a combination of medications, all
orchestrated between the referring Physician, the Physical
Therapist and your Interventional Pain physician.

River North Interventional Pain Management Consultants, S.C.,
has several locations throughout the Chicagoland area; we see
patients either in our 680 North Lake Shore Drive or in one of
our several peripheral offices including: North Michigan Avenue,
West Delaware Place offices in downtown Chicago, or our other
offices in Andersonville, North Chicago, Evanston, Wilmette,
Rosemont,  and Pulaski Ave. area. On occasion we arrange to see
patient in Aurora and Elgin as well.

We perform most of our interventions operative procedures
either at the accredited Ambulatory Care Surgery Center in the
Rivernorth area,  the Gold Coast Surgericenter in the
Streeterville area, the Hyde Park Surgery Center in Hyde Park;
the Peterson Surgery Center, the Lakeshore Surgery Center and
the Methodist Hospital Ambulatory Surgery Center in the North
Chicago and Andersonville areas, ALL state-of-the-art surgical
facilities where the most advanced medical technology and
equipment is utilized to diagnose and treat our patients.


_____________________

In most cases, the diagnostic and treatment process takes place
in one of our Centers and therefore hospital visits are not needed.

In cases where most invasive treatments or more complex
procedures such as Spinal cord stimulator, Neuroplasty,
vertebroplasty, intra-discal procedures, etc., are required for the
management of your Pain condition, you will be seen in a modern
operating room equipped  with the best and most advanced
medical technology available.

____________________

We are also staffed with an experienced Anesthesiology team as
well as a nurse-staffed full recovery room.

If so required, sedation may be used during invasive procedures
to help alleviate our patient's discomfort and anxiety. In such
scenario special arrangements would need to be made in advance
with the Anesthesiology team; additionally  you will need to
abstain from eating and drinking at least 6-8 hours before the
procedure, and  will be required to have an escort when leaving
our facility.

In our practice, Narcotic medications are rarely used and are
NEVER a remedy of first choice.
