Pain Management 

At Baylor Plano, we understand how debilitating chronic back, neck and leg pain can be. With advanced, compassionate care, our pain management doctors on our medical staff can create a customized pain management plan to help you get back to the normal activities of daily life. 

We believe the goal of pain management is to:

  • Minimize physical and emotional suffering
  • Decrease the disability caused by pain
  • Eliminate excessive reliance on medication or inappropriate medical resources
  • Accelerate your return to normal activities, including personal, family and work
  • Combine medical education and scientific research to promote successful clinical outcomes 

We help restore comfort through medication management and the use of:

  • X-ray guided injections: Using dye contrast and X-ray to guide location, pain management doctors can perform nerve blocks or apply an anesthetic/steroid combination to the source of pain.
  • Rhizotomy: A select group of patients may be candidates for rhizotomy, which heats the affected nerve, turning off its ability to transmit pain signals to the brain. 

These techniques are performed in an outpatient setting under moderate sedation or IV anesthesia and require a physician’s referral. 

Many patients report less pain and less dependence on pain medication after one or two visits. To see a pain management physician on the medical staff at Baylor Plano, please call 1.800.4BAYLOR or search our directory and ask your doctor for a referral.
