The Department of Interventional Pain Medicine in our Institute is aimed at finding the cause for chronic pain due to any origin and treat the pain permanently. This department with the goal of being the best pain management centre in Coimbatore is equipped with an exclusive out patient block to see walking patients and referred cases from out stations throughout the day. The multi-disciplinary approach with the surgical, medical, and the rehabilitation department is the high light of our department.
Traditionally any chronic pain which hurts for more than six months are diagnosed clinically and treated with conventional medications. The conditions which are not treated convincingly with the medicines and rehabilitations are subjected for surgical interventions.
The modern medicine found an alternative to these treatment modalities as the medical treatment is not always successful and the surgical interventions are cumbersome. Pain interventions in practice are precise injections at the target site, modification of nerve pathways by ablative procedures intramuscular injections and joint manipulations.
Many interventions are done as an outpatient procedures with a few hours observation prior to discharge. Major procedures like coeliac plexus blocks and lumbar sympathetic interventions may need admission and in house observations.
