It’s important to know a pain management center’s
philosophy. PMG’s model of balanced pain management is built on these key
The center focuses on the patient’s acute or chronic pain
diagnosis. It acts as a consultative service and remains in contact with the
patient’s primary care physician.
A hospital-based center ensures the best patient experience
by providing accessible, high-quality care. Often located on or near the
hospital campus, the center uses hospital lab, imaging, therapy and other
ancillary services. Integration with the hospital system’s resources and
records ensures patient care isn’t duplicated.
Qualified pain specialist
The center’s board certified and fellowship trained pain
management physician assumes primary care for the pain diagnosis. The physician
coordinates the patient’s treatment program aiming to restore daily activities.
After diagnosing the patient’s pain, the physician creates a
tailored care plan. He or she incorporates a combination of minimally invasive
interventional procedures, medication management and other hospital-based
ancillary services like physical therapy.
The patient and physician establish a relationship of
accountability. The patient is equipped to be responsible and accountable for
their care by receiving prescribed opioids from one physician, filling
prescribed opioids at one pharmacy, urine drug screens, random pill counts and
appropriate behavior in the clinic.

program through a Regional Director of Operations– from marketing to IT to
