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.”

Dr. Graf Hilgenhurst is a board-certified Anesthesiologist and Pain Management specialist. Precision Pain Care, is located in Smyrna, TN.
