Pain Management

Not all painful conditions are resolved by surgery or immediately eligible for surgical intervention.  Board certified anesthesiologist Dr. Eva Jane Rawl and fellowship-trained, board certified Physiatrist Dr. Ryan Wetzel work in conjunction with our surgeons to provide non-operative interventions to manage chronic pain.

Pain Management

Treatment options may include physical modalities, muscle or spinal injections, nerve blocks and radio-frequency ablation.  Additionally, Dr. Wetzel specializes in the use of high frequency spinal cord stimulator to resolve pain that persists following surgery. This newly improved technology can provide immediate pain relief, excellent outcomes and can be done on an outpatient basis.

Dr. Wetzel also provides platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, which utilize a patient’s own blood to promote healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints.

Our pain management physicians gladly accept patients referred from providers outside of our surgical practice for pain management evaluation. Treatment may be brief or long-term depending on each patient’s condition and need. Both neurosurgeons and orthopaedic surgeons are readily available for surgical consults if needed.
