OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (December 19, 2016) – Blue Valley Hospital is pleased to announce the grand opening of the new, more spacious BVH Pain & Migraine Center. Blue Valley Hospital began providing interventional pain management services in 2014 to serve the growing number of people in Kansas City suffering from chronic pain. The decision to expand is the result of a rapid increase in patients from the surrounding areas. This new office is located adjacent to Blue Valley Hospital at 12880 Metcalf Avenue, Overland Park, KS.
Chronic pain affects an estimated 100 million Americans and an untold number of people are affected by acute pain. When asked about four common types of pain, respondents of a National Institute of Health Statistics survey indicated that low back pain was the most common, followed by severe headache or migraine pain, neck pain and facial ache or pain. Interventional treatment can provide long-term pain relief and decrease dependency on opioid pain medications. The result is an overall improvement in quality of life.
“We have expanded to a larger space, all at ground-level with curbside parking. We now have a larger clinical area with on-site radiology and procedure rooms to continue to provide outstanding medical care to our community and better serve our valued patients,” says Dr. Anthony LaSalle, Director of the Pain Center. “We are very fortunate to have so many patients place their trust in our hands, and for Blue Valley Hospital, this means an enhanced ability to deliver our comprehensive, integrated care model to our patients.”
Blue Valley Hospital Pain & Migraine Center will also provide expanded specialty treatment options for chronic headache and migraine sufferers. Treatment is available for many different types of headaches including vascular migraines, both chronic and acute, non-vascular migraines, vertex, cluster, tension headache and occipital neuralgia. This treatment is covered by most insurances, including Medicare and Missouri Medicaid and can lead to forty percent fewer headache days each month.
