The URMC Pain Treatment Center is the only center of its kind in the area. We have exceptional success with our patients, because we take a very different approach to pain management. Our team is comprised of very experienced providers. We offer a multidisciplinary approach, so you will have a complete team of pain experts working for you. Our doctors are all fellowship trained—the highest level of education available—and have over ten years experience in helping patients overcome pain. We can provide all possible interventions. This means we are better able to customize your care. And should you need a different treatment, we can provide it.


We offer every pain treatment you might benefit from, all right here. This enables us to completely customize your care from your very first day. And should you need a different treatment, we can provide it—without sending you somewhere else.

Procedural Therapy

  • Epidural injections
  • Facet injections
  • Intraarticular injections
  • Sympathetic blocks, including stellate ganglion, celiac plexus, thoracic and lumbar sympathetic ganglion, superior hypogastric plexus and ganglion impar blocks
  • Home epidural infusions
  • Spinal cord stimulator trial and implantations
  • Radiofrequency ablations
  • Neurolytic procedures
  • Trials of intrathecal medications
  • MILD Procedure - Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression


Patients will have regular medical follow-ups at the Pain Center to adjust and titrate various pain medications (opioid analgesics, antidepressants, anticonvulsants and other adjuvants).

Once patients are stabilized on an adequate pain regime they are discharged back to their primary care provider to continue with ongoing care. 

Psychological Services

Behavioral and cognitive therapies with our clinical psychologists include bio-feedback, hypnosis, and relaxation therapy. This is an integral part of pain management because chronic pain is a disabling disease and affects the person as a whole. These services are very important and very effective in improving the quality of life for patients.
