Pain

Nebraska Medicine has an expert team of doctors dedicated to comprehensive treatment of acute and chronic pain conditions. Our goal is to focus on the whole patient when designing a treatment plan individualized for you.

Chronic pain is defined as pain lasting longer then three months. It may interfere with your ability to work, sleep, play or take of the important things in life. Our goal is to help you not only address the pain problem itself, but also focus on the underlying conditions that lead to or contribute to pain.

Treatments unique to you

In some cases that means after evaluating you we advise physical therapy or a procedure we can perform to relieve your pain. We may also consider medication management in the appropriate circumstances or psychological care. Depression and anxiety are common in patients who have spent significant time in pain. Our goal is to connect you with the best possible way to get you relief.

A multidisciplinary approach

Our pain team coordinated with physical therapists, occupational therapists, surgeons, and those who specialize in psychological issues and massage, in order to provide you with the best diagnosis for your pain, as well as treatment.

A deep bench of specialists

While we pull together the most experienced team in the region to collectively decide how best to help you, each of our doctors is an expert in one or a handful of specific kinds of pain.

Treatments for numerous conditions

While we help many patients with more typical back pain and spine pain, it's not unusual for us see patients with a wide variety of other pain conditions including joint pain, post surgical pain, foot and ankle pain, headache and facial pain as well as others.

Proven credentials

Unlike many pain clinics, our doctors are all board certified in pain management, and most are fellowship-trained as well.

Financial counseling

We are fully aware that an issue with pain unfortunately can't always be solved with a visit or two, meaning those doctor visits can often translate into financial stress. To help you cope, we can bring in a financial service counselor to help you navigate the costs associated with being treated, if necessary.

Convenient locations

Our doctors rotate so we can see you at any of our three hospitals - our midtown Main campus, Bellevue or Village Pointe - as well as clinics in Papillion and Wahoo Nebraska.     

Our pain management program

We've been helping people manage pain for 42 years through our program for those dealing with chronic pain issues.

Inpatient and outpatient programs

We travel throughout the Omaha metropolitan area and beyond seeing patients. There's a good chance one of our doctors works near where you live or work.
