The Lankenau Pain Center is dedicated to treating
acute and chronic pain of all varieties to restore quality of life and
function. We understand that no two patients are a like. The team at the
Lankenau Pain Center will create an
individualized, comprehensive treatment plan that takes into account
your unique issues. This process starts with listening to you and taking
a detailed history of your pain process. We perform a focused physical
exam and evaluate your diagnostic studies and notes of the collaborating
physicians. The next step is to create a multidisciplinary care plan
with you. A multidisciplinary approach is central to our care plan. This
means that the treatment program often involves the combination of
medications, advanced diagnostic techniques, interventions (such as
nerve blocks), physical therapy and self-management techniques.
Our goal is to find the cause of your pain and not just treat the
symptoms. A close relationship with our partners including surgeons,
neurologists, psychiatrist /psychologist, radiologists, therapists and
our patients paves the way to achieve this goal. The members of our
group all stem from academic background. Myself, Dr. Duckles and Dr.
Patel are products of the U Penn Pain Medicine fellowship program and
Dr. Jalali and Dr. Park are the founders of the Jefferson Pain
