Our Team

The Miami Valley Hospital Pain Center has a dynamic interdisciplinary team led by a Board-Certified physician.

Board-certified physician

A board certified pain management specialist is a physician with special training in evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of all different types of pain. A pain management specialist must have An in-depth knowledge of the physiology of pain, the ability to evaluate patients with complicated pain problems, an understanding of specialized tests for diagnosing painful conditions, ability to  appropriately prescribe medications for varying pain problems, and skills to perform procedures.

Advanced Practice Nurses (APN)

Our advanced practice nurses have attained a master's level education, national certification, and specialized training in pain management. Working with the physician, the advanced practice nurses help provide greater access to pain management for hospitalized patients. The APN can order medications, tests and therapies, offer patient consultation, devise a treatment plan, and conduct and analyze research to provide safe and effective pain control. Using evidenced based practice, the APN can be a resource to provide education for the healthcare team on current pain issues affecting the inpatient population. This includes management of the inpatient Ketamine protocol for post-operative pain and/or chronic pain management under the direction of the anesthesia pain service.

Registered Nurse (RN)

Our team of registered nurses have over 100 years of combined pain management experience. The nurses in the Pain Center promote patient access to appropriate pain management through comprehensive assessments, education and collaboration with other disciplines. Patients can expect excellent care delivered with compassion. 

Primary Care Technicians (PCT)

The PCT is a partner to the RN and APN.  The PCT aids in patient care typically by transporting patients for procedures and by obtaining pre-and post-procedure vital signs.

Access Staff

The access staff partners with the Pain Center staff to greet and register patients for their visit.
