The Ramos Center was founded by Dr. Fabian A. Ramos in 1999. The practice treats patients with chronic pain. A fairly recent specialty, Interventional Pain Medicine, assesses patients, their conditions and determines the possibility of treatment that will help alleviate the pain through a series of options. Dr. Fabian Ramos is also an anesthesiologist which is primarily the specialty that pioneered interventional pain management.
What is the goal of Interventional Pain Medicine?
Treating pain is a very complex discipline and the goal(s) vary for each. The primary goal is to reduce or relieve the patient’s pain. Chronic pain can seriously affect a patient’s life, interfere with work, relationships and the ability to pursue sports, hobbies and other types of interests. Patients with chronic pain often develop depression. Interventional Pain Medicine may delay future surgery or decrease pain completely for a limited period of time. In some cases, pain can be totally eliminated allowing the patient to return to a full, active life. Dr. Ramos explains to patients the recommended treatment or procedure and the various outcomes that can be expected.
