Path to a Pain-Free Life

Living with pain can take its toll on a patient, both physically and mentally. Fortunately, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Kaufman provides patients with numerous treatment options proven to achieve results.

No matter the source or location of pain -- whether it’s in the lower back, neck or joint -- experts in the Pain Management Program at Texas Health Kaufman are equipped and qualified to serve your pain management needs.

“There’s a misconception that pain is an inevitable part of aging and that we must simply accept it, and that’s just not true,” says Salvatore Campo, D.O., pain management physician on the medical staff at Texas Health Kaufman. “There are several things we can do to improve patients’ functionality and quality of life through active pain management.”

A Collaborative App roach According to Psychology Today, pain can affect more than just a person’s physical well-being; in fact, emotional pain and physical pain often go hand-in-hand. To meet the complex needs of every patient, Texas Health Kaufman utilizes health care professionals from several disciplines to develop pain management plans on an individualized basis.

“We strive to deliver exceptional care by spending one-on-one time with our patients to determine an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan,” says Jose Duarte, M.D., medical director of the Pain Management Program at Texas Health Kaufman. “We want to help patients live as pain-free as possible.”

If you have experienced pain for more than six months, speak with your physician about exploring pain management options. To learn more, visit TexasHealth.org or call 1-877-THR-WELL (1-877-847-9355). (Summer 2010)
