Dr. Graf Hilgenhurst is founder of Precision Pain Care and the Spine and Pain Physicians Surgery Center, our area’s first and only interventional pain surgery center. Led by Dr. Hilgenhurst – a highly experienced physician with board certifications in both pain management and anesthesiology – our team specializes in providing treatment for chronic pain using minimally invasive, state-of-the-art techniques. If you live in Nashville or Smyrna, Tennessee, and suffer from nagging upper or lower back pain, sciatica, joint pain, neuropathy, or another form of discomfort, let our staff accurately diagnose your condition and explain the various care options that are available to you.
The top goal at our practice is to help our patients manage or eliminate their chronic pain through conservative, responsible treatment and pain management techniques. In many instances, this style of treatment can delay or even eliminate the need for invasive surgery. Our minimally invasive approach to care is important, because it means our patients don’t have to worry nearly as much about serious post-surgical complications or developing a dependency on strong pain medication.
At Precision Pain Care, we specialize in addressing pain that originates in the knees, hips, shoulders, and other joints, as well as symptoms that begin in the spinal column. While some degree of occasional neck pain and back pain is considered normal, when symptoms persist for several days or weeks, a physician should be consulted. Often, spine problems can also contribute to symptoms that develop in other regions of the body, as is the case with sciatica and other types of nerve pain. Many patients are surprised to learn that their discomfort stems from spinal osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, or a herniated disc. That’s why our thorough diagnostic process is so invaluable. We’ll be able to identify the precise origin of your discomfort, and with this information, recommend a treatment plan that is right for you.
Interventional pain therapy is designed to interrupt the pain signals that are causing a patient’s discomfort using highly advanced medical procedures. When you turn to Precision Pain Care, you’ll have access to many different innovative therapies ranging from targeted epidural steroid injections and platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP treatment) to radiofrequency neurotomy and spinal cord stimulation. Each of these treatments are performed using fluoroscopic guidance, which allows our team to pinpoint the exact source of your neck, back, or joint pain and to address the problem effectively.
Dr. Hilgenhurst founded Precision Pain Care because he saw the opportunity to deliver highly specialized and personalized treatment to a segment of the population that struggles with chronic, debilitating pain due to whiplash, arthritis, pinched nerves, and other causes. Rather than consenting to a highly invasive surgery that you might not need or attempting to manage your discomfort with a never-ending supply of potent, possibly addictive narcotics, why not see if one of our pain management techniques might be able to deliver the results you desire?
