Bypassing Pain

Don’t let chronic or acute pain compromise your quality of life.

According to the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies, an estimated 116 million Americans are affected by chronic pain. If you are one of millions suffering from debilitating pain, Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Azle offers comprehensive inpatient and outpatient pain management services to help relieve your suffering.

“We offer safe, efficient care close to home,” says Kristine Hatfield, R.N., B.S.N., nurse manager of Surgery and Endoscopy at Texas Health Azle. “We provide support to our patients and their families in a calm, relaxed atmosphere.”

Because pain can result from a variety of problems, proper diagnosis is the first step in developing an appropriate treatment plan. Texas Health Azle offers evaluations for a full range of conditions, including:

• Back, neck and joint pain

• Cancer and post-radiation pain

• Degenerative spinal pain

• Facial and dental pain

• Headaches and migraines

• Nerve pain

“Our pain management services are personalized to meet each patient’s needs,” Hatfield says. “The physicians on our medical staff determine treatment regimens based on medical history, current medical condition, and previous pain interventions and results.”

Once the cause of pain is identified, Texas Health Azle offers epidural injections, minimally invasive surgeries, outpatient physical therapy and a wide range of additional services that can safely and effectively relieve your suffering.

To schedule an appointment with a pain management specialist at a Texas Health hospital, call 1-877-THR-WELL (1-877-847-9355).
