I appre­ci­ate the pro­found impact pain can have on an individual’s qual­i­ty of life. When patients enter our clin­ic they should be very opti­mistic, as the tools at our dis­pos­al are con­stant­ly improv­ing. To achieve the best out­comes, I start with the most con­ser­v­a­tive approach and progress through more advanced inter­ven­tions as pain and symp­toms warrant.
