Dr. Phan specializes in Interventional Pain Management. In his words, “The pain experience has not only physical but also mental, spiritual and social implications. As a result, I am committed to a holistic and personalized approach that reflects the uniqueness of each person’s pain experience. The process starts with a precise identification of specific “pain generator” by means of diagnostic techniques (nerve blocks, joint injection, etc). Once the “pain generator” is found, a comprehensive and multidisciplinary treatment regimen which ranges from interventional procedures to medications can be implemented. In addition, a comprehensive rehabilitation program with occupational, physical therapists, acupuncturists will help maximize the functional potential of the individual as well as prevent future recurrences. No one deserves to live in pain.”
