About Pain Treatment

The Kansas City Center for Pain Medicine accepts patient referrals from primary care physicians and specialists, and works with physicians in a team effort. A comprehensive plan of care and a fully understandable explanation of our recommendations will be provided to the patient prior to treatment. An individual plan of care may include the use of other disciplines, such as behavioral psychology, neurology, orthopedics, anesthesiology, physical medicine, aquatic therapy and other forms of patient therapy. The plan of care may also require laboratory screening and radiological exams, such as X-ray and MRI.
