Dr. Brian James uses both invasive and noninvasive techniques to alleviate pain for a long list of chronic conditions.
Dr. Brian James and Pain Medicine Consultants believe that life is full of pain – however, the suffering is optional. With more than 19 years of experience treating chronic pain, Dr. James utilizes a compassionate and thorough multidisciplinary approach to pain management.
Board certified in anesthesiology and interventional pain management, Dr. James underwent his fellowship training at the world-renowned Mayo Clinic. While there, he wrote and completed patents on two separate medical devices for pain management. (Both have been granted U.S. patents)
Dr. James and his staff use a multidisciplinary approach including hydrotherapy, acupuncture, physical therapy, bioelectrical therapy, nerve blocks, psychological and/or psychiatric counseling, and implantable devices (such as spinal cord stimulators and intrathecal pumps.) If necessary, Dr. James is able to burn nerves that carry pain signals, which, in some cases, eliminates the pain altogether. With this approach, Dr. James is able to increase functioning and quality of life for the majority of his patients. In many cases, he is able to alleviate their pain altogether.
