“Chronic pain is a challenging disease; it changes who you are as a person; it can make you frustrated and depressed. It is my job to tackle this challenge and provide my patients with options and tools that they can feel comfortable with and that fit within their lifestyle. I love being a chronic pain doctor because pain is so challenging to treat; it makes it very rewarding to see patients get better and get their lives back. It is also a very exciting time in pain management with multiple new devices and procedures coming out. This means even more minimally invasive options for our patients such as spinal spacers and vertebro-basilar nerve ablations.
While I treat every type of chronic pain, areas that I specialize in include seeing patients after failed spine surgeries. An area that I specialize in is providing interventional treatments for migraine headaches after failure of the standard medication management approach. I also specialize in treating pelvic pain, which can be very challenging and debilitating for patients that suffer from it. There are multiple innovative interventions that I can provide for pelvic pain that can significantly impact a patient’s life.” – Dr. Rano Faltas
