NEW YORK, Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP) has retained Rubenstein Public Relations (RPR) to educate the public on the interventional pain management specialty and the minimally-invasive techniques its physicians use to relieve pain.
Founded in 1998, ASIPP was formed to represent and support the interests of all interventional pain physicians. ASIPP members are board certified physicians who come from all medical fields but are most frequently anesthesiologists, neurologists and physiatrists.
RPR President Richard Rubenstein said: "interventional pain management is a growing specialization that offers hope to over 10 million Americans suffering from disabling chronic pain. We look forward to instituting a broad public awareness campaign, with the focus on ensuring that interventional pain physicians receive board certification for the specialty."
RPR will generate feature coverage of groundbreaking new medical advancements and techniques in the interventional pain management field, as well as secure interviews for ASIPP physicians to comment on medical-related news stories. RPR has significant expertise in the healthcare industry, having represented numerous medical facilities and prominent physicians from a broad range of medical fields.
"Unlike other specialists who have a limited ability to treat and diagnose pain, interventional pain physicians employ the most advanced techniques to find the cause and minimize pain," said ASIPP Director-at-Large David Kloth. "Such procedures often include epidural injections, facet injections, and spinal cord stimulation, among others. We look forward to initiating a dialogue with patients, fellow physicians, and insurance carriers on the merits of interventional pain management."
ASIPP has long served as a legislative advocate for patients and physicians. The organization proposed federal legislation to implement a national electronic monitoring system to help healthcare providers and pharmacists prevent prescription drug abuses. The National All Schedules Prescription Electronic Reporting (NASPER) Act was approved by Congress and signed into law by President Bush on Aug. 11, 2005.
