When it comes to back pain, it's personal.That’s because when your daily activities are halted by back and neck pain—whether sharp, dull, burning or throbbing—it can be difficult to enjoy life. At Wellstar North Fulton, our Spine & Pain experts know your pain isn’t like anyone else's because your body and lifestyle are uniquely yours. We work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan just for you.
Do You Need Pain Management?
Living without pain is not just an idea — it’s becoming a reality for thousands of people in North Georgia through treatment here at the Wellstar North Fulton Hospital Spine & Pain Center. If you or somebody you know suffers from pain, we want to help you regain your lifestyle and reduce or eliminate your pain.
Our initial goal is to determine what is causing the pain. You may not know where the pain is coming from. You could have pain in your hands or arms that could be coming from your neck. You could have pain in your feet or sciatic nerve that may be coming from a compressed nerve in your lower back. When you make an appointment, you will be carefully evaluated and we will examine you, order any appropriate imaging and develop a treatment plan that may include medications, physical therapy, nutrition, minimally invasive procedures or surgery.
There are many ways to manage pain, from therapy to minimally invasive procedures, to surgery. Call (770) 751-2719 and request a consultation to review your options.

How We Manage Pain
There are a number of treatment alternatives the Wellstar North Fulton Hospital Spine & Pain Center can offer to reduce or eliminate your pain. The treatment we find for you will depend on your individual situation. We feel our best approach is to educate you about all potential possibilities so that you can make an informed decision customized to you. Choices may include injections and medication management, physical therapy and rehabilitation, minimally invasive procedures, or innovative surgical procedures.
Injections and Medication ManagementWhile medications, epidural and steroid injections may provide quick relief, our goal is to help you manage your pain in a way that will maintain your overall quality of life. In addition to possible medication recommendations, we emphasize nutrition, exercise and physical therapies as crucial parts of the pain management process — helping your body heal wholly.
Minimally Invasive ProceduresAt the Wellstar North Fulton Hospital Spine & Pain Center we have two procedure rooms which allow us to perform minimally invasive procedures on-site, without having to utilize a hospital operating room. This saves a lot of time for our patients, as they are often able to be seen, treated and returned home within the same day.
Some of the pain relieving procedures we provide in our procedure rooms include steroid injections, kyphoplasty, radiofrequency ablation, a multitude of nerve blocks, and spinal cord stimulators.
We’ve recently begun offering a new minimally invasive treatment for tendon injuries (such as tennis elbow) called TENEX HEALTH TX. Click here to learn more.
Surgical ProceduresIf it is clear that surgery is going to be the most effective means of relieving your pain, the spine surgeons affiliated with Wellstar North Fulton Hospital are board certified orthopedic surgeons or neurosurgeons with convenient office locations near the hospital campus in Roswell or at a satellite office in Cumming, Georgia. Innovative surgical techniques such as iOFlex, or a variety of fusions and nerve decompression surgeries can be performed to take pressure off your nerves.
