David Kloth, MD, is the Founder, President and Medical Director of Connecticut Pain Care, P.C., a pain management center for the treatment of acute and chronic pain. He discusses interventional pain management, who should practice and the American Board of Interventional Pain Physicians’ certification process.
Intervention is an invasive technique to treat pain which typically involves the precision placement of needles into a deep structure of the body to either treat or diagnose the cause of pain.
An interventional pain specialist comes from a background of board certification in anesthesiology, physiatry or neurology.
ABIPP diplomate examination and certification is a comprehensive 7 step process. More information can be found at American Society Of Interventional Pain Physicians.
