Research shows that one in three cancer patients experience pain at some point in the cancer journey, so it is important to offer patients a variety of pain management options. At Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) in Atlanta our pain management physicians choose from a wide range of options to help patients control and manage their pain. Located in Atlanta, our hospital offers both prescription options and non-pharmacological treatments such as intrathecal pain pumps, radiofrequency ablation, spinal stimulation, nerve blocks and kyphoplsty.
Pain management physicians at CTCA® recommend treatment options in collaboration with physicians who practice internal medicine, surgical oncology, medical oncology, radiation therapy and a host of other medical fields. Our pain management physicians at the cancer center in Newnan, Georgia, also work closely with an extended team of supportive-care clinicians who collaborate in both treating the cancer and helping patients manage side effects, including pain. Our doctors are passionate about finding a balance to helping alleviate pain for our patients. When patients can manage their pain, they are better able to focus on healing and improving quality of life. The pain management team at CTCA Atlanta uses a patient-centered, multidisciplinary approach to care, designed to allow patients and their families to make informed decisions about their care.
Dr. Nathan Neufeld, Medical Director of Pain Services and Supportive Therapies & Interventional Pain Management Specialist at our Atlanta hospital, is passionate about providing CTCA patients with personalized care. Dr. Neufeld brings expertise in advanced interventional pain management techniques to treat the needs of our patients. He takes a balanced approach to treating cancer-related pain, using analgesic medications, incorporating minimally invasive procedures when appropriate, and implanting stimulators or intrathecal pumps to treat severe pain.
