What Can I Expect From a Pain Management Doctor?

What Can I Expect From a Pain Management Doctor? A pain management doctor is a medical professional who is uniquely trained to diagnose and treat chronic pain. It’s estimated that at least 100 million Americans live with chronic pain that prevents them from sleeping normally, concentrating well, and enjoying life to the fullest.

In general, a pain management doctor will aim to better understand the source of your pain and suggest a combination of conservative and minimally invasive techniques to relieve or eliminate your symptoms. Some common pain management approaches include physical therapy, nerve block procedures, and lifestyle changes.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
