There is a set of large electric doors beyond the Emergency Department entrance between the stone walls. To access the Pain Clinic parking, from Centre Street (Route 123) follow the signage for the Emergency Department on the left side of Brockton Hospital.
Dealing with chronic pain can be one of the least pleasant experiences a person can endure. At Signature Healthcare, we’ve assembled a team of pain management experts to help relieve your discomfort and cope with the effects of chronic pain conditions.
Your physician or nurse can arrange for a consultation with one of these specialists. They can work with you to use medications or innovative interventional techniques to relieve your pain, providing a range of the latest interventional pain management services. Appointments must be via referral, so it is important for patients with pain to discuss the option with their caregivers.
The Interventional Pain Management Clinic is dedicated to providing the best level of pain relief that may be safely administered. Some of the procedures we offer include:
- Interventional Practices
- Spine Injections
- Treatment of Compression Fractures of the Spine
- Neuromodulation Techniques
- Radiofrequency Ablation
- Implantation of Spinal Cord Stimulators
- Sacroplasty using the latest Fluoroscopy technology
- Radiofrequency Thoraic Lumber ablation/lesion (genicular RFA)
Interventional pain management or interventional pain medicine treats pain with invasive interventions such as facet joint injections, Radiofrequency Ablation, and nerve blocks (interrupting the flow of pain signals along specific nervous system pathways).
Non-Interventional Pain Management is the evaluation and management of patient pain with the use other therapies and medications such as NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs).
Appointments need to be arranged from a Signature Healthcare referring physician, as they need to send an order & paperwork over before any appointment can be scheduled.
For Non-Interventional Pain Management (medication management), you will need a referral from your Signature Healthcare Primary Care Physician (PCP).
For Interventional Pain Management (procedural interventions) at Signature Healthcare you will need a referral, a physician order and notes and in some cases insurance approval from your doctor to refer you to the clinic.
