Pain Management

Pain Management

Southwest General Medical Group, Inc. – Pain Management specializes in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of pain. This includes both acute and chronic pain from a variety of illnesses or injuries, such as cancer, surgery, metabolic disorders, immune system disorders, musculoskeletal disorders, nerve damage and more.

Using their skill and experience, our physicians provide a broad range of treatments to minimize pain, improve function and enhance a person’s quality of life. Treatment techniques may range from use of appropriate medications to nerve blocks, spinal injections and other interventional procedures. Additionally, we support a multidisciplinary approach to care and can coordinate other services as needed--such as physical and psychological therapy--to provide a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan for patients.

The following information is needed to process your prescription renewal request:
