Pain management clinic in Tyler

This center specializes in non-surgical methods of addressing backache, neck pain and headache. The pain management center conducted the first clinical trials with IDET (intradiscal electrothermal therapy), a technique that is less costly than surgical fusion and promotes a rapid recovery.

The physicians and staff work closely with patients to develop a comprehensive plan to reduce or eliminate chronic pain. The center also assists neurosurgeons by using nerve blocks to isolate specific nerves involved in causing pain.
