Interventional Pain Management in Colorado
Pain has become a national challenge with needed cultural transformation to understand its effect. At any time chronic pain is affecting about 100 million adults in the US, which is one third of the population. This total is more than those affected with heart disease, diabetes, and cancer combined.
Lost productivity from pain is estimated to cost the nation upwards of $635 billion each year as one of the top public health problems, according to the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The goal of Pain management is to implement a interdisciplinary approach to those suffering with pain and give them a better quality of life. The Colorado Pain Network strives to offer cutting edge interventional treatments as well as the management of pain medication.
Our Denver pain management program involves a team that includes Board Certified and Fellowship Trained pain management doctors to custom tailored a plan of action for each patient and their individual needs.

Some of the procedures include:
- Epidural steroid injections
