Pain Management: New Strategies, Tools and Techniques

The Pain Institute of Southern Arizona held its 2nd Annual Pain Conference for providers in Tucson and the surrounding communities.  We feel it is important to share with community providers, recent advances in pain management and explore treatments available for providers to offer their patients.

The conference highlights different aspects of pain management, such as PRP Injection Therapy, Medical Marijuana and Pain Management, Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation and the Advances in Spinal Cord Stimulation, Opioid Management and Government Guidelines, and our Keynote speaker Dr. Steven D. Passik’s presentation was titled “Opioid Therapy at a Time of Crisis”. With over a 25-year academic and clinical career at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, University of Kentucky and Vanderbilt University, Dr. Passik’s research has focused on psychiatric aspects of pain and symptom management and the interface between pain management and addiction.

If you are a provider and were unable to attend the conference and would like to attend next year, please contact Celina Gonzales, Marketing Director, at (520) 318-6035.
