Your first visit to DPM is called the “Initial Consultation.” We will obtain a thorough history about not just your pain, but your overall health as well. Then we will work together to determine what course of treatment will be best for you as an individual.
Follow Up Visits
A follow up visit is any office visit after your initial consultation. These visits are usually scheduled anytime from 2 weeks to 12 weeks after your initial consultation. These interactions are usually to review imaging studies, assess your response to treatment, or to discuss future treatment options.
Interventional Pain Procedures
In order to assist with either determining the source of your pain or trying to directly treat an anatomical area that has been determined to be painful, Dr. DiMuro can use image-guided injection therapies to deliver medications to the painful area. When we perform our injection procedure, many of our patients choose to use a gentle intravenous sedation to help them relax for the procedure. With the use of this intravenous sedation coupled with a generous amount of local anesthetic (“novocaine”), we are able to perform our pain injection procedures without any anxiety or pain to our patients. At DPM, we have the most technically advanced fluoroscope in Southern Nevada. Dr. DiMuro has been teaching other physicians from all over the country how to perform many of the procedures he performs right here in the office. In most cases, your injection procedure can be done safely in our office setting without the need for an inconvenient visit to a hospital or Ambulatory Surgery Center.
Dr. DiMuro is considered a Subject Matter Expert (“SME”) in the field of Pain Management. He is routinely sought-after by both plaintiff and defense counsel for his opinions on cases ranging from the 9/11 terrorist attack in New York City to well-publicized Federal cases here in Nevada and locally, for patients who have suffered a personal injury.
