Pain Management

Vikki Gambrill, CRNA, NSPM-C

Our Philosophy
There are many types and sources of pain that can be from a new or old injury, illness, disease, or surgery. Pain affects each individual differently and can keep you from being active, sleeping well, enjoying family and friends, healing, and affect even your appetite. Our goals of
interventional pain management are to relieve, reduce, or manage pain symptoms, restore function, and improve quality of life through minimally invasive techniques specifically designed to treat these painful conditions. Believing in the multidisciplinary approach, our certified pain management provider thoroughly evaluates each patient, then works directly with the primary providers and ancillary staff to individualize pharmacologic and therapeutic treatment for each patient. With this collaboration, non-invasive and conservative modalities are pursued first until those modalities become ineffective or fail.
