Pain Management

Living with constant pain is difficult, and people who suffer from chronic pain know how it can disrupt and damage their lives. It can make it difficult to enjoy even the simplest daily activities.

 

What is Chronic Pain?
Chronic Pain is a constant pain that can last from a few months to many years. This relentless problem can cause severe pain, sleep deprivation and depression if it persists for a long period of time. Pain can be caused by injuries, disease processes, or weak bones and muscles.

 

About the Pain Clinic
The Pain Clinic at Coffeyville Regional Medical Center can help patients who suffer from chronic pain. The clinic operates on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Outpatient Surgical Services Department. Anesthesiologist Dr. Baba Abudu and Nurse Anesthetist Christopher Hogan CRNA treat patients for a variety of pain.

 

What Kinds of Pain are Treated?
Examples of the more common types of chronic pain treated include: non-surgical back pain; joint pain (hip and sacroiliac); pain from acute shingles; post-herpetic neuralgia; and myofacial pain syndromes.

 

HOW IS THE PAIN TREATED?
Chronic pain treatment often includes the injection of medications into the affected area.  Some injections are performed using fluoroscopy (aka X-ray guidance) while others utilize ultrasound to ensure maximum effectiveness.  Each patient is unique and their therapy will be guided by their specific needs.
