Colorado Pain Specialists (CPS) is devoted exclusively to advanced interventional pain management. The vast majority of physicians who work in this important specialty do it as an adjunct to other work. Not us. We focus exclusively on pain management, because we believe only through this singular aim can we bring our patients the kind of pain relief they desire and deserve. When you concentrate only on pain management, or any other single discipline for that matter, you can become very skilled at it. So it’s not surprising that our doctors, with 23 years of combined pain management experience, are nationally recognized leaders in their field. They are acclaimed for providing the highest quality, most state-of-the-art techniques for the diagnosis and treatment of back and neck pain.
Accurate diagnosis is our mantra
We’re fond of saying that “diagnosis isn’t everything; it’s the only thing.” As unlikely as it sounds, the process of arriving at an accurate and complete diagnosis is almost always rushed in medicine. This is especially true for back and neck pain patients. Why is this? There are many reasons; physicians’ busy schedules and the sheer complexity of the neuromuscular structure in the spinal column are two likely culprits. Despite the distractions and excuses, we understand that the diagnosis is the center of the pain management wheel. So we take the time and bring all our resources to bear in order to find out why our patients are in pain. Fortunately, our resources are vast. In addition to our years of experience, we have some awesome technology at our disposal. By utilizing the latest in diagnostic and therapeutic spinal injections, we can pinpoint the sources of our patients’ pain and treat that pain. We utilize advanced imaging to ensure that pain relief is delivered precisely where it is needed.
If through the diagnosis process we determine that a patient needs a different treatment, we have a vast referral network to other preeminent specialists.
