We know there is an endless and often overwhelming number of options when it comes to treating stubborn pain. Unfortunately, many of these may result in treatments that are unproven, ineffective, and potentially harmful leading to more frustration and suffering. When treating pain, time is of the essence and early choices can have long-term consequences. We believe it is of the utmost importance to find the right providers as soon as possible to limit the negative impacts of chronic pain. Here is what separates our practice from the rest.
Not all physicians who treat pain have undergone the same degree of specialized training or have experience dedicated to pain management. We encourage you to carefully examine the level of training and experience of your existing or future pain care providers.
Our physicians and providers are experienced board certified experts in the treatment of neck and back pain as well as many other painful disorders. All physicians at Gateway have undergone the most extensive and rigorous training to be specialized in Pain Medicine. They have completed postgraduate specialty training including residencies in Anesthesiology and accredited fellowships in Pain Medicine.
We are dedicated to utilizing the most up to date, cutting edge treatments to identify and target the sources of pain. For many of our procedures, we utilize x-ray and ultrasound imaging to better target areas that cause pain. Our goal is to minimize or eliminate that need for potentially habit-forming medications that often have significant side effects and risk. We focus on holistic care, treating with a balanced, appropriately conservative, and targeted approach.

At Gateway, our goal is to provide you cost effective options to best treat your pain. Unlike most other pain practices, we offer an in-office procedure suite. This provides a comfortable, less intimidating environment. Importantly, the total charges billed are typically 5-7x lower compared with the same service performed at a hospital or surgical center. Our Bolingbrook office procedure suite is credentialed with the AAAAHC (Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care) so you can rest assured that procedures performed in our office meet the highest standards with respect to safety and compliance. Of course, different patients have different needs, and as a result, we also perform procedures in hospitals and surgical centers when appropriate. Gateway is unique in that we provide you different options to best fit your needs.
