Tennessee Society of Interventional Pain Physicians Selects Graf Hilgenhurst, MD

Graf Hilgenhurst, MD, has been newly elected as President and Executive Director of the Tennessee Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (TNSIPP). Dr. Hilgenhurst, who specializes in injections and other procedures of the spine to treat neck and back pain, will lead the mission of TNSIPP, the state chapter of the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP). Both organizations promote the development and practice of high quality and effective interventional pain management techniques. “I’m pleased to accept this position. There is a great need to educate patients on choosing qualified physicians in the field of Pain Management. This will be one of my goals in the coming year. In Tennessee there are many practices that promote themselves as pain management specialists, but if you look at the training of their providers, they are not really qualified to perform these procedures. Some of them aren’t even physicians. Patients deserve to receive care from a highly trained provider who can accurately diagnose and treat their condition.“

Dr. Hilgenhurst is Board Certified in Pain Management and Anesthesiology. His practice, Precision Pain Care, is located in Smyrna, TN.

Dr. Hilgenhurst is available for interviews. To schedule please contact: Kerrie L. Cooper, Cooper Marketing Services, 615.496.8878.

The International Spine Intervention Society Press Release

Graf Hilgenhurst M.D., board-certified in Pain Management and Anesthesiology and owner of Precision Pain Care, was one of two physicians in the nation to be chosen this year by the International Spine Intervention Society as a faculty member. Physicians were required to submit X-ray images of spinal pain management procedures they perform. Next they were observed performing these procedures. Finally, they were judged in their teaching abilities. In his role as faculty member, Dr. Hilgenhurst will teach other physicians to perform these procedures at continuing education conferences across the United States.

The International Spine Intervention Society is a prestigious association of physicians dedicated to the treatment of spinal pain. Dr. Hilgenhurst said: “I am honored to have been chosen to be an instructor. It was quite a rigorous process. You have to be board certified just to belong to the Society. There are a lot of people out there calling themselves pain specialists and doing injections, but not all of them are qualified. As an ISIS instructor, I can say that not only have I taken the courses … I also teach the courses! I think it’s important for patients to understand the qualifications of their doctors.”
