We perform pharmacotherapy, minimally invasive interventional pain therapy (nerve block, epiduloscopy, IDET, percutaneous nuclectomy, spinal cord stimulation, etc.), and psychological therapy to treat inpatients and outpatients.
In cooperation with Orthopaedic Surgery, Neurosurgery, Neurology and Cerebrovascular Diseases, Rehabilitation, and Palliative Care Team, we are able to treat a wide variety of pain.
Pain specialists can safely apply nerve block therapy to patients as needed in the X-ray examination room built in the outpatient consultation room.
We perform gasserian ganglion thermocoagulation under general anesthesia to treat trigeminal neuralgia.
You can be hospitalized for short periods to receive minimally invasive interventional pain therapy.
We are performing advanced treatments including intradiscal electrothermal therapy (IDET) to treat discogenic low back pain.
In addition, we strive to provide the appropriate medical care to improve the QOL for the individual CRPS patients.
