A Compassionate, Interdisciplinary Approach To Fighting Your Worst Pain.

There has never been a pain relief specialist quite like Washington Bryan II, MD. That’s because Dr. Bryan takes an extremely compassionate interdisciplinary approach to helping every patient fight their worst pain.

Dr. Bryan is board-certified in both anesthesiology and pain management by the American Board of Anesthesiology. He has treated thousands of pain patients during over seven years in practice. And he is willing to use the full armamentarium of technology, treatments and modalities to effectively reduce or eliminate every patient’s pain.

MD-Strength Treatment
Dr. Bryan spends a great deal of time with his patients, learning the nature of their problems, taking detailed health histories and discussing failed treatments, lifestyle changes and a wide array of treatment options.

These can include nerve blocks, trigger-point injections, Botox, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), acupuncture, biofeedback, massage, nutrition counseling, medication management and even magnet therapy.

Among the more advanced treatment options are spinal cord and brain stimulation, intraspinal drug infusion and radiofrequency nerve lesioning, or radiofrequency ablation.

Radiofrequency nerve lesioning is the promising result of a search for a nonsurgical technique capable of stopping pain at its source. It’s a more refined technique for destroying damaged nerves based on the thermocoagulation of those nerves using an electrode capable of producing accurate temperatures. Dr. Bryan has used this technique successfully with arthritis sufferers, cancer patients and others with severe, unresolved chronic pain.

Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) relieves chronic pain by electrically stimulating the spinal cord. The low-voltage stimulation, produced by a special device, seems to close a “gate” in the spinal cord, effectively preventing transmission of specific pain signals to the brain. Intraspinal drug implantable pumps internally administer pain medication into the spinal column. It often reduces many of the side effects (particularly nausea) associated with oral drug administration.
