Louisiana Pain Specialists is proud to begin its partnership with the Tulane Medical Center, which has been a cornerstone of New Orleans healthcare since 1834. Louisiana Pain Specialists will be bringing expertise in pain management and an outstanding level of patient care to the Neurosurgery and Spine Center at Tulane Medical Center Downtown.
In regards to the new partnership, Louisiana Pain Specialists’ Dr. Nomen Azeem, who will be treating patients at the Neurosurgery and Spine Center said, “We at Louisiana Pain Specialists are honored to be the only private pain management group in New Orleans to be affiliated with the well-respected academic institution of Tulane Medical Center.”
Dr. Manish Singh, the Co-Director of the Neurosurgery and Spine Center believes that this partnership will have a positive impact on patient care. “Typically less than 25 percent of patients with spine problems really need surgery, while many of them need other treatment modalities. We as neurosurgeons are not set up to do long term pain management,
and offering pain management is integral to running a spine center in a comprehensive way.”
Dr. Singh thinks that Dr. Azeem is equal to the task. “He is an accomplished pain doctor who is an expert in chronic pain care and various types of interventions. The procedures he offers are diagnostic, in which he can discover where the patient’s pain is coming from, and also interventional, in which he can treat pain so that patients may avoid surgery. Even for patients who have run out of other options for their pain, he can carry out a Spinal Cord Stimulator trial to see if they may get relief. Having a pain management clinic within our Center with a pain expert is really going to help the overall outcomes and improve in patient care.”
The physicians at Louisiana Pain Specialists are focused on improving the quality of life for their patients. They have been successful in caring for patients with challenging conditions, for whom other treatment plans have failed. They look forward to providing quick access to accurate diagnosis and comprehensive treatment within the Tulane Medical Center for those who suffer from chronic and acute pain.
