Pain Therapy Center

Provita Medical Center - operating theatre

Pain therapy is the treatment of diseases that have chronic or subacute pain as a symptom, and which result in a severe impairment of the quality of life. In Europe, the prevalence of patients with chronic pain is 20% and 30% of the patients aged between 45 and 65 years old report chronic pain lasting more than one year.

Who would benefit from pain therapy?
  • 60-70% of the patient population report:
    - axial pains due to cervical, thoracic or lumbar hernias
    - sacroiliac pains due to mechanical causes
    - small facet joint syndrome
    - discogenic syndrome

  • Patients with neuropathic pain such as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome:
    - post-herpetic neuralgia
    - post-amputation “ghost” (fake) pain
    - plantar fasciitis
    - neuralagic pain post thoracotomy
    - post plex avulsion pain
    - pelvic and chronic abdominal pain (chronic prostatitis, interstitial cystitis, post-surgical, post-neoplastic irradiation, pain in chronic pancreatitis, etc.)
    - pectoral angina without coronary treatment

  • Neurological patients with:
    - cervicogenic headache
    - orofacial pain type trigeminal neuralgia

  • Oncology patients
    Pain therapy is the result of a complete team working together – it involves family doctors, neurologists, neurosurgeons, orthopedists, psychologists and last but not least, physicians and kinetophysiotherapists working together with the pain management specialists for the benefit of the patient.

An expert team

Led by Dr Ovidiu Nicolae Palea, the medical team at the Provita Pain Therapy Center comprises experts in anesthesia and intensive care, medical imaging and interventional radiology, and neurology. Together they provide a comprehensive range of therapies and procedures, including:

  • Spinal infiltration (transforaminal): a minimally invasive, day-case procedure that introduces local anesthetic and a very strong steroid to an inflamed nerve; performed in cases of pain due to irritation caused by disc hernias, disc protrusion and vertebral stenosis.
  • Infiltration: intra-articular for chronic pain of osteoarthritis, coxarthrosis (hyaluronic acid, PRP, stem cells from fat can also be injected) in the sacroiliac joints; for chronic pain of the muscle tendons (tendinitis); for chronic pain of the peripheral nerves (carpal tunnel syndrome, ulnar neuropathy, etc.)
  • Radiofrequency ablation: a minimally invasive, day-case procedure that uses radio waves or electric current to block the transmission of painful nerve signals
  • Disc-FX: a minimally invasive, day-case procedure that addresses discolored disc herniation (with a moderate degree of disc generation where the disc is not broken) that did not respond to conservative therapy
  • Endoscopic discectomy: a minimally invasive, day-case procedure that removes symptomatic broken hernias or hernias for which nucleoplasty is contraindicated
  • Epiduroscopy: a minimally invasive procedure for the diagnosis and treatment of chronic lumbar pain following failed disc hernia operations and vertebral stenosis
  • Peripheral nerve blocks: an injection of anesthetic into the plexus nerve or lymph nerve to block pain to an organ or region of the body. Can be used diagnostically or therapeutically
  • Osteocool: a miminally invasive technique to ablate spinal tumour using radiofrequency waves; recommended for secondary tumours under 30mm

Center for Neurosurgery

The Provita neurosurgery team led by Dr Dorin Bica and Dr Ionut Gobej specialises in minimally invasive neurosurgery, treating conditions such as spinal disc herniation, degenerative spinal conditions, spinal tumours, spinal trauma, brain tumours, cavernous and medullary arteriovenous malformations and hydrocephalus. By using not just small incisions, but also natural anatomical corridors, their advanced techniques avoid damage to neurovascular structures and minimise the risk of infection, post-operative discomfort and aesthetic deficits. With an average hospitalisation time of three days, recovery is also quicker.

The Provita neurosurgery team are supported by an expert team specialising in anaesthesia, intensive care and pain therapy.

Imaging Center

Provita’s modern Imaging Center is equipped with the latest CT and MRI equipment including the 3T Skyra Magnetom and Somatom Perspective of 128 that allow assessment of the most complex pathologies. The comprehensive service is complemented by conventional radiology, mammography and ultrasound and is conducted by an experienced team of specialists to obtain high quality, accurate diagnosis.

Center for Physiotherapy

Provita Medical Center - Biodex

Using a range of kinetotherapy and physiotherapy techniques, the Center for Physiotherapy at Provita provides individualised treatment plans both to support good health and to manage and aid recovery from existing conditions. Specialist equipment available at the Center includes BIODEX, the fully robotised isokinetic dynamo solution for all joints, and VACUMED Intermittent Vacuum Therapy, a space medicine therapy that has hugely beneficial curative and recovery effects for vascular, inflammatory and orthopaedic conditions, as well as being used prophylactically by major sports clubs such as Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Manchester City.

Health 360

  • General clinical examination
  • Laboratory and imaging investigations
  • Nutritional evaluation
  • Kinetotherapy evaluation using the BIODEX method to reveal and alleviate functional musculo-articular asymmetries of the spine and limbs
  • Stress assessment conducted by a specialist in psychiatry and psychotherapy
