Specializing in Advanced Treatments to Help Manage Pain

Chronic pain is one of the most common reasons adults in the United States seek medical care*. In fact, according to the National Institutes of Health, chronic pain affects about 40 million — more than one in seven — American adults.

If you’re one of the many millions of people who are suffering, you know that pain can limit your ability to enjoy everyday life. What’s more, dealing with chronic pain doesn’t just result in a diminished ability to participate in everyday activities. Pain that doesn’t resolve can also lead to mental health challenges, difficulty functioning outside the home, increased healthcare costs, and more adverse consequences.

The good news is that there are specialists that can help manage pain. Justin Faye, MD, a physician with South Texas Health System® Clinics, specializes in advanced pain management techniques and strategies. Here he answers some frequently asked questions about his services.

Q: What types of conditions do you treat?

Pain management services are available for patients with a wide range of conditions, including: abdominal and pelvic pain; arthritic pain; back and neck pain; cancer; complex regional pain syndrome; fibromyalgia; headaches; multiple sclerosis; musculoskeletal pain; myofascial pain; neuropathic pain; phantom limb pain, and more.

Q: What types of services do you provide to help your patients manage pain?

My approach to managing pain is as varied as the types of conditions I treat. Services available include: adaptive device/technology recommendations; epidural steroid injections; intrathecal baclofen and pain pump management; peripheral nerve blocks; pain medication management; pain control and adaptive strategies; radiofrequency ablation; spinal cord stimulator, and other neuromodulation techniques.

Q: What can a new patient expect during their appointment?

I take a very individualized approach to pain management. That means I tailor care to the patient’s individual needs, depending upon the specific part of the body that is impacted and the type of pain involved. I also take what’s called a multimodal approach to pain management that may include some combination of procedural interventions and/or medications. The bottom line is that nobody needs to suffer from chronic pain and there are options to provide appropriate relief.
