Ambulatory Surgery Center to expand

 

The Ambulatory Surgery Center of Paducah will add three operating rooms, while the associated Pain Management Center will move to a new medical facility by the end of this year. A 30,000-squarefoot, two-story building will be constructed to house the primary offices for the Pain Management Center at the corner of Lakeview and Plantation drives in Lone Oak.

 

The Ambulatory Surgery Center will move into the pain center’s former offices at 2831 Lone Oak Road once construction is completed. Work on the building beginsMonday; expansion of the surgery center will start in August.

 

“Due to increasing demand for cost effective outpatient surgical services with changing dynamics in health care, the Ambulatory Surgery Center is expanding to provide additional services other than interventional pain management ...and ophthalmology,” said Dr. Laxmaiah Manchikanti, medical director of the Ambulatory Surgery Center and the Pain Management Center.

Pain!


We have all experienced it at one time or another. If you are living in constant pain, you probably have tried every idea, medication, and have been to a host of doctors. You may be unable to work or to do as much work as you could before you were in pain. It disrupts your home life and work, and is often misunderstood by others, who cannot see the cause of your pain.

Scope of the Problem

 

Chronic pain is defined as pain that lasts for a long period of time or at least beyond the normal healing period. Seventy-five million Americans suffer from chronic pain and 50 million of them suffer with some disability.

 

  • Pain costs $120 billion each year

  • Unrelieved pain can lead to unemployment and decreased productivity

  • Unrelieved pain is associated with alcohol and medication abuse

 


 

Understanding Chronic Pain


Acute pain is similar to the alarm that stops. It usually starts with an injury or illness. Pain gates in the body open to allow pain messages through. When the message has reached the brain, it responds in two ways - by protecting the body from further damage and by closing the pain gates to reduce the level of pain.

Sometimes pain does not go away after initial treatment, and it becomes a chronic or a constant pain. Ongoing chronic or constant pain, also known as intractable pain, is like an alarm that keeps sounding, and can make it difficult for a person to lead a normal life. Family, work, income, and lifestyle can all be negatively affected by intractable pain. Receiving effective treatment for pain can reduce the costs of ongoing care. Two people with the same injury or illness may feel different types or degrees of pain.

It is important to know that the type or degree of pain you feel may not indicate how serious your injury or illness is.

 


 

Benefits of Appropriate Pain Treatment

 

  • Saves lives - patients in severe pain who are not treated have been known to commit suicide and to end their suffering

  • Reduces the chances of developing additional physical problems or making existing problems worse

  • Reduces suffering for patients and families

  • Returns the patient to being in charge of his or her life

  • Allows the patient to become more productive in society - through work, family life, or social activities

  • Reduces the cost of medical care

 


 

Consequences of Mismanaged or Under-Managed Pain


Mismanaged or under treated pain can result in:

 

  • Extensive, costly, unhelpful work-ups and treatment

  • Dysfunction in family, vocational, and social life

  • Mental and physical suffering

  • Increased disability costs

  • Increased yearly expenditures

 


 

Pain Management Therapy


The Center's unique approach to managing your pain is based on medical and scientific principles and treatment. We work with you to relieve your pain and all the associated problems with it. We also treat your pain as the main problem, not simply as a symptom of another problem.

Our program combines the skills of physicians, physical therapist, and nurses - all with special expertise and interest in chronic pain.

This way our team can attack your problem from every angle, physical and mental.

 


 

Evaluation
 

When you are at Pain Management Center, you undergo a comprehensive multidisciplinary evaluation before starting the treatment program.

This evaluation includes:

 

  • Complete review of all pertinent medical records

  • Comprehensive physical assessment

  • An in-depth pain profile

  • Comprehensive psychological evaluation when appropriate

 

So upon contacting Pain Management Center, you will be asked to complete an evaluation form, that asks for specific information about your pain problems with detailed treatment history. After arrival you will undergo further testing.

 


 

Goals of Treatment


The major goals of pain management is to put you back in charge of your life. The overall relief from chronic pain depends on more than just treating the damaged area of the body.

Our aim is to make progress with small victories which add up and produce a big improvement in the quality of your life.
