    Pain Management

    Relief for acute and chronic pain

    Of the 50 million Americans who live with chronic pain, 20 million have high-impact pain that significantly interferes with everyday life. For people experiencing acute and chronic pain, a successful pain management plan can have an enormous impact on quality of life.

    Southeastern New Mexico Pain Management Clinic at Artesia General Hospital is dedicated to the highest caliber of care. Led by an interventional pain specialist, Casey Dellabarca, MD, our multidisciplinary team works together to develop a personalized treatment plan that gives you a better quality of life.

    Dr. Dellabarca uses the most advanced procedures—including blocks, radiofrequency ablation, epidural and steroid injections—along with physical and occupational therapy to improve your pain. The team works closely with your primary care provider to help you stay as healthy and active as possible.

    We do not prescribe, distribute or otherwise manage opioids or narcotics as part of our care. A referral from your primary care physician is required.
