Dr. Hilgenhurst’s Message to Healthcare Providers

Dear Colleague:

I am pleased to introduce you to Precision Pain Care (PPC) as a referral resource for your patients, those who are experiencing acute or chronic pain, and who may require surgery or pain advice from a qualified interventional pain management (IPM) physician.

Physician partners are a vital link in patient care. My priority in working with referring physicians is to…

  • Ensure your patients receive the highest level of subspecialized IPM care, delivered by a skilled, board-certified and fellowship-trained pain management physician.
  • Attend to your patients in a compassionate, timely manner.
  • Communicate effectively with you and your staff to provide quality coordinated care for your patients.
  • Make it easier for your patients and/or your office staff to request an appointment with online tools.

Dedicated to precisely and accurately pinpointing the root cause of each patient’s pain, PPC provides relief through a variety of minimally invasive treatments that deliver treatment directly to the source of pain.

PPC provides a range of minimally invasive pain management services using the best modern technology has to offer. My practice offers over twenty different treatments including facet injections, implantable drug delivery systems, nerve blocks, neuroaugmentation, and radiofrequency rhizotomy.

We are a small, highly specialized practice, offering patients personal service and continuity care from one visit to the next. Our targeted, personal approach sets us apart from large, impersonal pain management centers.
