Interventional Pain Management utilizes a multidisciplinary approach to provide a full range of services and treatments for patients suffering from acute or chronic pain. Pain management injections are safe, effective, can provide longer-term solutions than oral medications, and are a less invasive option than surgery.

My objective is to relieve, reduce, or manage pain and improve a patient’s overall quality of life. This is accomplished through minimally invasive techniques specifically designed to properly diagnose and treat painful conditions with the ultimate goal of helping your patient return to their everyday activities as soon as possible and without heavy reliance on medications.

Patient Stories

Becky Jones

Dr. Sarzier is a great guy, a great surgeon, has the best attitude and bedside manner. He did everything he could to keep me from having surgery until it became absolutely necessary. I fish and I deer hunt. I couldn’t sit in a boat for long periods of time and I couldn’t climb a deer stand because of my back pain. I would recommend Dr. Sarzier 10 times over. He helped me get my life back and doing the things I love.
