On November 14th, Anna Jaques Hospital welcomed patients to the newly renovated and expanded Comprehensive Pain Center located on the hospital campus at 25 Highland Avenue, Newburyport.
Led by Medical Director Simon Faynzilberg, MD, the Comprehensive Pain Center strives to help patients reduce and cope with chronic pain. Chronic pain affects 1 out of every 5 people worldwide and is typically defined as pain that is persistent, usually lasting longer than 6 months.
Many common conditions treated at the Comprehensive Pain Center include: back pain, neck pain, joint pain, neuropathies, fibromyalgia, migraine headaches, post-traumatic injury pain, cancer pain, and more.
The recent renovation project co-located all related pain services to one expanded, state-of-the-art facility, including a new surgical procedure room and pre-and-post procedure areas. The suite also houses the latest C-Arm technology which provides high-resolution, real-time fluoroscopic x-ray imaging during surgical procedures.
Patients are now treated in one convenient location, from their first consultation through interventional pain procedures, recovery, and ongoing pain management.
“Our newly renovated Comprehensive Pain Center ensures patients receive individualized and comprehensive care – all in one location to promote healing. Our dedicated team specializes in customized treatment plans to fit our patients’ unique needs. Our shared goal is to reduce or eliminate pain, restore function, well-being, and overall quality of life,” said Dr. Faynzilberg.
The Comprehensive Pain Center at Anna Jaques is specially designed to offer patients continuity of care, including regular consultation and medication management with clinicians in the office, minimally invasive pain management procedures and injections, and diagnostic testing. The team also hosts a free monthly Chronic Pain Support Group for individuals living with the daily challenges of chronic pain to gain mutual support, encouragement, empathy, and education – an offering unique to the Comprehensive Pain Center at AJH.
In addition to the community-based care provided by Anna Jaques, as a member of Beth Israel Lahey Health, Comprehensive Pain Center patients also have access to a vast network of leading experts in orthopedic and spine surgery, neurology, behavioral health, occupational and physical therapy, and more.
Dr. Faynzilberg also sees in Haverhill at 62 Brown Street, Suite 207.
