Interventional procedures at Nura range from image-guided steroid injections and nerve blocks to precision nerve ablation procedures, to trials and surgical implants of neurostimulation devices to treat complex chronic pain. These procedures are done in Nura’s advanced technology Surgical Centers.
With these advanced tools and skill sets, Nura’s interventional physicians are known for their ability to precisely diagnose and treat chronic pain. They utilize advanced imaging with fluoroscopy (real-time x-ray) and ultrasound to precisely guide minimally-invasive treatments to pinpoint and treat the patient’s exact pain center. The accuracy of these tools along with the quality of our surgical setting makes Nura a leader in precision pain management.
In fact, Dr. David Schultz, Nura’s founder and medical director, is a nationally-renowned interventional pain physician with unmatched expertise and research experience working with implantable neurostimulation systems and pain pumps. These game-changing implantable pain control systems provide small, precise doses of either electrical current (neurostimulators) or medication (pain pumps) to the exact area where the treatment is needed to stem pain. Implantable pain control systems offer a powerful alternative to taking oral or skin patch opioids, which deliver relatively large doses of mind-altering drugs that flood the entire body, dull the brain and are responsible for fueling the current opioid crisis. Neurostimulators and pain pumps are the most advanced tools in Nura’s interventional toolbox and can provide pain relief when all other efforts have failed.
Our Physical Therapy, Wellness and Research divisions dovetail with our modern pain management surgical facility to coordinate multi-faceted, holistic care under one roof. Nura brings together physician pain specialists, physical therapists, psychologists and specialized advanced practice providers to offer patients unprecedented access to one of the most comprehensive and effective interdisciplinary pain programs in the country.
Chronic pain patients no longer need to put up with being shuttled from procedure provider to procedure provider in an often long and frustrating journey to find pain relief. Nura offers all evidenced-based interventional procedures coordinated with physical therapy and psychology treatments as needed, within one medical practice under the watchful eye and highly coordinated plan of care of your Nura pain specialist.
