Dr. Hilgenhurst’s Message to Prospective Patients

Dear Prospective Patient:

I would be honored to be your physician, and am pleased that you are considering Precision Pain Care as you evaluate the options for pain treatment.

Untreated pain – in addition to being debilitating – can lead to various health problems including depression, decreased mobility, high blood pressure, gastrointestinal problems, muscle fatigue and spasms, sleep difficulties, and a weakened immune system.

Early intervention is crucial, as important as accurately diagnosing the underlying source of your pain…a precision diagnosis means that treatment can more effectively provide relief. When treated promptly, the risk of additional damage to nerves, discs, and other structures is reduced in some conditions.

I have been treating pain for many years both as an anesthesiologist and an interventional pain management physician. My specialty is in diagnosing and treating neck and back pain, which may also present as radiating pain down the arms or legs. As an IPM physician, I specialize in minimally invasive procedures, including injections into and around the spine to treat the root cause of pain.

I hope that our highly personalized and targeted approach will put you at ease, while we help you get back to an active, productive life with less pain. The entire staff is here to help alleviate any fears you may have, and will take the time to listen, as well as to clearly explain how we can be of assistance in minimizing your pain.

Thanks for taking the time to learn about Precision Pain Care. If you need a referral, have your primary physician contact our office.

Graf Hilgenhurst, MD
