The rehabilitation services team works very closely with the Spine Center and the Pain Management Service, which will also be located at the Ambulatory Care Center on Wells Ave.

The Spine Center offers the expertise of leading back and neck experts and provides surgical and non-surgical consultation and intervention for a variety of spine conditions and needs, including neck and arm pain, back and leg pain, spinal stenosis, disc herniations, second opinions for surgery, workmen’s compensation claims, chronic back and neck pain, and degenerative disorders of cervical and lumbar spine.

The Center provides multidisciplinary care for spinal conditions and anyone who suffers from back- and neck-related pain that interferes with work, recreational activities, daily living functions and the overall enjoyment of life. Specialists care for the full range of spinal disorders – from simple to complex – affecting the cervical, thoracic and lumbar areas of the spine.

The Pain Management Service at Newton-Wellesley Hospital, also moving to the new Center, is committed to helping patients relieve their pain and return to their optimal level of functioning to enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle.

“Chronic pain can disrupt every part of a person’s life including work and social activities,” says Paul Satwicz, MD, Anesthesiologist and Director of Pain Management at Newton-Wellesley. “At Newton-Wellesley, we have highly trained specialists who help our patients reduce and even eliminate their pain.”

The Pain Management Service works closely with Rehabilitation Services and the Spine Center to offer individualized care for people with acute, chronic or cancer-related pain. The Pain Management team provides a comprehensive approach to diagnosing, treating and relieving chronic pain through both medical and alternative behavioral methods. The team works together to develop treatment plans tailored to each individual patient’s needs with the primary goal of reducing or eliminating pain and enabling patients to achieve the highest possible level of function and independence.
