Cancer Pain Management
We consider uncontrolled cancer pain to be an urgent need and will add cancer pain patients onto our clinic and surgery center schedule same day or next day. We are the pain experts and hope to partner with you to conquer cancer pain – you remain in control while we control pain. To discuss a patient, please call our Provider Hotline at 763-537-1000 or fill out the secured online referral form.

The importance of social interactions with family and friends
The pain of terminal cancer can be devastating with both physical and emotional consequences. Many cancer patients are robbed of their last days with family and loved ones because their pain or pain medication prevents social interaction. Although some patients wish to be heavily sedated by opioids and anti-anxiety medications during their final weeks and months, many patients wish to remain awake and lucid until the end.
How Nura can help your patient manage cancer pain
At Nura, we provide effective pain relief without reducing mental clarity for those patients who want to avoid high doses of opioids. Our interventions include nerve ablation procedures and targeted spinal drug delivery with fully implantable pumps or external delivery systems (think labor epidural) for those at end of life. By combining advanced technology with our expertise at precision targeting of physical pain generators, we can allow the cancer pain patient to reduce or eliminate the need for systemic opioids.
