The surgical center employs its own full-time anesthesiologist to ensure the best care available for surgical procedures like the implantation of infusing pumps and neurostimulator devices.
The Advanced Pain Management and Neurology Group clinic takes a multi-disciplinary approach to treating its patients. There are three major divisions in its operation: pain management, testing and treatment, and neurology. Together, these three divisions provide unrivaled care for patients, leading to healthier, happier, pain-free lives.
The pain management portion of the practice addresses a wide variety of common spinal and musculoskeletal conditions. By diagnosing these conditions accurately, Dr. Grewal and his staff can develop treatment protocols tailored to each patient’s specific health needs.
Neurology plays an important role in the overall healthcare picture for patients of the Advanced Pain Management clinic. Neurologic disorders, nerve impingements, degenerative diseases, and trauma-related conditions may also serve as the underlying causes of chronic pain. The clinical staff at APM uses a combination of advanced testing and diagnostic tools to get to the source of the pain. From there, it becomes possible to improve patient outcomes dramatically.
Testing at the APM clinic locations can include:
- Neurological Evaluation and Testing
- Electroencephalography (EEG)
- Video Electronystagmograpy (VENG)
- Nerve Conduction Studies and Electromyograms (EMG)
These diagnostic tools pinpoint conditions accurately, pointing the way toward improved quality of life once Dr. Grewal and his staff can begin their treatments. Click here to learn more about his practice.
