The purpose of pain management is to evaluate, diagnose and treat different types of acute and chronic pain. Treatment options can be simple or complex, depending on the cause of the pain. The overall goal is to return the patient to optimal function.
At United Hospital District, we offer a wide range of nonsurgical, non-narcotic pain management procedures, ranging from joint injections to spinal injections. Our Clinical Pain Management Department is led by Tim Klassen, who is highly trained in this field and holds numerous advanced training degrees and certifications. Tim has been performing chronic pain procedures since 2014.
