At Arrowhead Orthopaedics we recognize that for some patients and some injuries chronic pain may linger even after all medical and surgical options have been exhausted. For these patients, persistent pain may diminish their ability to perform daily chores and maintain a sense of normalcy in their lives.
These patients can benefit from the services team of Dr. Jonathan Lee, the trained physiatrist on the team.
Dr. Lee monitors the level of pain and develops a custom pain management plan for each patient. The group is in the process of developing a multi-disciplinary network of providers to address the chronic pain management needs of AO patients.
