About Us

 At the division of Interventional Pain, our main goal is to improve function while decreasing pain and reliance on opioid medications.

Because pain can affect all aspects of life, we believe that the management of chronic pain requires a collaborative relationship and team approach utilizing multifaceted treatment plans.

We take pride in serving communities in the Black Hills, and we offer the latest treatments available in a safe, high quality, and cost-effective manner to get you back on your feet and back outdoors.

We treat our patients how we would like our own family members to be treated. We understand that chronic pain does not stop and neither will we.
