At the Algone Interventional Pain Center, our providers are experts in evaluating, diagnosing and creating a plan of care tailored to our patient’s individual needs. Algone’s pain specialists utilize a multidisciplinary approach to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients. As Alaska’s premier pain and wellness clinics, we treat all types of pain, caused by a number of potential diagnoses. Algone’s providers have extensive training and are highly qualified in many minimally invasive treatment modalities. These procedures provide similar, sometimes better, results than traditional surgeries, but with smaller incisions and less trauma to the patient’s body, allowing faster recovery.

A post graduate program (a fellowship) dedicated to pain medicine is a one year training program beyond the normal medical school and residency training, which most regular health care providers receive. This program trains physicians on micro invasive procedures to treat pain. A pain fellowship program also educates a physician on how to properly manage pain medications. Pain physicians with this specialty training are also trained to focus on a comprehensive medical evaluation for each patient directed toward their specific symptoms to establish a better treatment plan. The Algone Center helps a patient eliminate pain through options other than medication and major surgery.
