The UF Health Interventional Pain & Spine Center is the only comprehensive and multidisciplinary pain treatment program at the University of Florida and is sponsored by the Departments of Anesthesiology, Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation, and Neurology in conjunction with the physicians of the UF Health Cancer Center.
The UF Health Interventional Pain & Spine Center offers a unique and multidisciplinary approach to treating patients with acute, persistent and cancer pain. We believe pain is not simply an isolated physical ailment, but rather a problem that must be addressed by treating the whole person. Our center provides a full range of pain medicine services, with a focus on the use of non-opioid medication, interventional (injection) techniques and physical therapies as well as in providing the evaluation of the appropriateness of opioid pain medication regimens and assistance in development of treatment plans for the discontinuation of ineffective opioid-based pain medication regimens.
Our pain experts specialize in both the common pain complaints (acute low back, leg, neck or arm pain) as well as more complex pain that is not getting better despite previous treatment, pain that is complicated by other medical, neurological or psychiatric disease, and they address pain medicine addiction and/or fear of addiction with the goal of restoring health, function and quality of life.
