Want to live pain free? Contact miVIP's world-class pain experts

miVIP Surgery Centers offer solutions for pain. Our experienced and accredited pain experts perform state-of-the-art minimally invasive procedures to help manage your severe pain and return you to your regular routine sooner than other pain management procedures. Our pain management specialists rely on the latest technologies, including radiofrequency ablation, to block chronic pain in the most effective, least invasive possible way.

The human body's nervous and muscular systems are extremely complex and any injury, degeneration or disruption to them can cause chronic, persistent pain. Almost 90 million adults in the United States suffer from chronic pain, which is defined as pain lasting more than six months. Most commonly, such pain includes:

  • Headaches
  • Backaches
  • Joint pain
  • Injuries to the back, neck and joints

Chronic pain can arise from some other condition, an injury or may have no known cause.

Extreme and chronic pain can completely disrupt your life, as well as exact an emotional toll that can cause depression, arouse anxiety, increase stress and spark anger. Chronic pain can make you feel as if you have withdrawn from life as you struggle daily to manage your pain.

The expert team of pain specialists at miVIP offers a range of non-robotic pain management services including:

  • Epidural Injection of anti-inflammatory medication into the epidural space between the spinal cord and vertebrae. A short-term treatment, an epidural injection can relieve pain and soothe affected areas, such as your lower and mid-back or neck.
  • Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) uses a special radiofrequency machine to semi-permanently block nerves. An outpatient procedure, RFA relies on the latest imaging technology to precisely pinpoint parts of the nervous system causing chronic pain. Your miVIP physician uses a special tool inserted through the skin that takes 90 seconds or less to reduce nerve communication, thereby reducing chronic pain. RFA’s results can last three years.
