Diagnoses treated at the center include neck and back pain, headaches, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), nerve damage and pain, as well as chronic pain from degenerative disc disease, herniated discs, spinal stenosis, failed back surgery, sciatica, arthritis, muscle spasms, and shingles.
The center will be staffed by Dr. Bojan Pavlovic. Dr. Pavlovic is board certified in both pain medicine and anesthesia and completed his fellowship in cardio-thoracic anesthesia at the University of Chicago. He also completed a pain fellowship at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan.
McDonough District Hospital Pain Management Center is committed to helping patients for the life of their pain as they comply with their care plans. The center establishes an agreement with the patient that holds him or her accountable to the use of only one pharmacy, one prescribing physician, medication safety from loss or theft, pill counts, and urine drug testing.
“People who have acute or chronic pain that is preventing them from living their normal life may be a good candidate for this program,” says Dr. Pavlovic. “We offer some of the most advanced treatments available today for pain management. These treatments are more tolerable and less invasive than in the past,” he adds.
“There is a significant need for this type of service in our community,” says Kenny Boyd, President and CEO of MDH. “We are very pleased to provide local, safe and effective pain treatment to patients and their primary care physicians. The last thing these patients need is to travel long distances for treatment when they’re already in pain.”
