Pain Management Program
Commonwealth Orthopaedics is pleased to provide a referral-based Pain Management Program staffed by Dr. Amanda Trucksess, a board-certified physiatrist.
When a patient with neck or back pain is referred to the Pain Management Program by a Commonwealth Orthopaedics' physician or an outside referral source, Dr. Trucksess determines which procedure(s) will be most effective for managing the patient’s chronic or acute pain. In most cases, performing a series of non-operative procedures will delay and may prevent the need for surgery.
The procedures most commonly used in the Pain Management Program include:
- Ultrasound guided joint injections
- Sacroiliac joint injections
- Fluoroscopically guided epidural steroid injections
- Selective nerve root bloacks
Patients who are interested in Pain Management services should contact a Commonwealth Orthopaedics’ physician or their personal physician for a referral.
