Anesthesiology and Pain Management

We offer comprehensive pain management services customized to fit your patients’ individual needs.

The fellowship-trained anesthesiologists and pain specialists at Baylor Scott & White Health combine medical education and scientific research to decrease the disability caused by pain and to minimize physical and emotional suffering.

By eliminating excessive reliance on medication, we seek to accelerate your patient's return to normal activities – personal, family and work.


We offer a variety of pain treatments, including:

  • Differential neural blockade
  • Sympathetic and steroid blocks
  • Regional infiltration of the muscle
  • Peripheral nerve blocks
  • Pharmacologic therapy
  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Implantation of dorsal column stimulators (neurostimulators) and intrathecal morphine pumps
  • Neonatal anesthesiology (Central Texas)

Our comprehensive pain management program, which provides assistance to patients with chronic pain and acute pain following surgery, also features:

  • Reconditioning programs
  • Physical therapy
  • Pharmacologic pain management
  • Stress management
  • Coping skills training

Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS)

The ERAS plan is a clinical pathway developed by Baylor Scott & White Health that helps patients by:

  • Allowing them to take part in their own recovery
  • Increasing their comfort
  • Decreasing their hospital stay
  • Preventing dehydration
  • Allowing them to eat/drink soon after surgery
  • Lowering their body’s reaction to stress

Patients who participate in the ERAS plan typically go home sooner and have fewer complications than those who do not follow the plan.
