Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center launches balanced pain management center
Date: December 03, 2014
Pain Management Group (PMG) has partnered with Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center (TLRMC) to bring balanced pain treatment to the Leitchfield, Ky. community. TLRMC Pain Management Center is located at the hospital and will begin seeing patients on November 19.
Heloise Westbrook, MD will diagnose all acute and chronic pain at TLRMC Pain Management Center. Using a balanced approach to pain management, she will create a tailored care plan for each patient that incorporates the use of minimally invasive interventional procedures, medication management and other services in the community like physical therapy.
Dr. Westbrook was fellowship trained in pain management at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire. She is certified in pain management.
The goal of the program is to empower patients to return to their daily activities that are currently inhibited by pain. Staying in contact with the patient’s primary care physician, Dr. Westbrook and TLRMC Pain Management Center care for the patient’s diagnosis for the life of their pain.
Common diagnoses are neck and back pain, including work-related injuries and sciatica; persistent pain after back or neck surgery; arthritis pain in neck or lower back; Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS); nerve damage or muscle spasm pain; shingles pain and headaches.
Dr. Westbrook will perform all interventional procedures locally at TLRMC. Common procedures include epidural steroid injections, facet joint injections, selective nerve root blocks and radiofrequency ablations.
TLRMC Pain Management Center is now accepting new patients. For more information, please call the center at 270-259-9405.
