What Will the Pain Specialist Do for Me?
A physician referral is needed before you come to the Advanced Pain Center. During your initial appointment, we work with you to devise an individualized treatment program to improve your functioning and aim at lessening your pain, which can help you cope with and improve the quality of your life.
Tiffany K. Romantino, MD
Tiffany K. Romantino, MD, board certified provider in pain management and anesthesia, leads the Excela Advanced Pain Center. She specializes in the multimodality of chronic pain. The reduction of chronic pain allows the patient to return to activities of daily living and improve quality of life. She uses interventional methods, physical and aquatic therapies and cutting edge procedures for knee pain.
Medication can play a role in controlling pain. For acute pain, it is often the first treatment choice. At the Advanced Pain Center, we treat both acute and chronic pain through a multifaceted approach that may include:
- Exercise and lifestyle changes
- Physical therapy
- Behavioral changes
- Nerve blocks
- Epidural injections
- Implantable devices
- Radiofrequency ablation
… along with medications when deemed necessary. Each of these methods or a combination may help you function better on the job, at home, and in the community; cope with pain more effectively, and reduce pain whenever possible.
