Pain management is a specialty that is dedicated solely to the diagnosis and treatment of many painful
conditions, particularly those related to the spine. Most people come to a pain management physician
after an injury has not improved with several weeks of over the counter pain medication and
conservative treatments such as physical or chiropractic therapy. With our emphasis on diagnostic
precision we are able to accurately identify the cause of your pain so that it can be more effectively
treated. At The Comprehensive Spine and Pain Center of New York, we offer patients all the most
advanced non-surgical treatment options to cure or reduce pain to a manageable level. We know that
the right treatment as soon as possible can stop the cycle of pain and keep you from needing surgery or
developing a lifelong chronic pain syndrome.
There are many pain management physicians in the New York area but there are few that have the
training background, knowledge, staff, and facilities capable of delivering the highest quality of
interventional treatment options like The Comprehensive Spine and Pain Center of New York. We
recognize that each person in pain is an individual and therefore we strive to thoroughly review all your
medical information and tailor a treatment plan specifically to you and all the factors that contribute to
your pain. It is only through the compassionate understanding of your specific situation that we can fully
treat your pain. We offer much more advanced treatments than the typical medication prescriptions and
standard cortisone shots that you will find elsewhere. For instance, we perform procedures such as the
Vertos mild procedure for spinal stenosis decompression, which is a minimally invasive non-surgical
method for treating spinal stenosis. For a full list of our treatment options please link to our
“Treatments” page here. We also are continuing to advance the field of pain management offering
cutting edge regenerative treatments using your own stem cells which offer the prospect of healing
damaged joints and tissues. There are few doctors around the world that are performing these types of
treatments currently. For further questions about any of these options feel free to contact the center
and Dr. Canty.
At The Comprehensive Spine and Pain Center of New York, we diagnose and treat all forms of
pain. We understand that your pain is individual and we will partner with you and your
physicians to identify the cause of your pain and tailor a treatment plan that gets you pain relief
as quickly as possible. Our goal is to improve your ability to return to the activities you have
been missing and help you live a pain free life. We strive to promote comprehensive treatment
recommendations based on the latest advances in pain medicine. This may include injections,
nonsurgical procedures, physical and chiropractic therapy, complementary holistic treatments,
relaxation strategies or medications. Our team is dedicated to the care and treatment of all
patients in pain. We want to understand your needs and offer the most advanced nonsurgical
options to reduce pain and improve activity.
