Our purpose at Glowacki, MD is to utilize a multidisciplinary approach combining interventional procedures, medical management, alternative medicine, physical therapy and surgical inputs to reduce or eliminate your pain and to restore your ability to live and work as you desire.
Many physicians continue to treat patients with medication or surgery before the specific cause of their pain has been identified. This dramatically increases the risk of complications and often results in poor outcome. The specialty of Interventional Pain Management has been developed to address this urgent need for more accurate diagnosis and treatment of painful conditions.
During your initial visit, your physician will conduct a complete pain history and focused physical examination. All pertinent medical history and diagnostic studies are carefully reviewed. Additional testing or diagnostic injections may be recommended to determine the specific origin of your pain prior to the initiation of therapy. Your physician will custom tailor an individual pain management program. This will be discussed with you and a full report is sent to your referring doctor.
At Glowacki, MD we treat your pain by reducing the inflammation or desensitizing the painful nerves, spinal discs, joints or muscles responsible for your symptoms. We specialize in treating a variety of painful conditions including: low back pain, neck pain, RSD, shingles pain, neuropathy, cancer pain, headache, joint pain and musculoskeletal pain. Our physicians are renowned for treating headaches and neck pain in patients who have failed most other therapies.
During their extensive fellowship training, Drs. Glowacki and Conroy perfected advanced pain procedures such as neurostimulators, pain pumps, nucleoplasty, micro-invasive disc procedures, as well as, more common procedures including: epidural steroid injections, nerve blocks, and radiofrequency ablation. Our use of fluoroscopy (real-time x-ray) to perform the diagnostic and therapeutic injections allows us to maximize accuracy and avoid side effects.
All of our procedures are performed on an outpatient basis in a relaxed and healing spa-like environment. Our facilities are staffed by specially trained personnel and equipped with the most sophisticated technology. At Glowacki, MD, we believe that our compassionate and expert care will provide you with a beneficial and rewarding experience so that you may finally wake up to a pain free day.
