AMC expands pain management services

SARANAC LAKE – Expanded pain management services are now available to residents and visitors of the Adirondacks and northern New York.

Board certified and fellowship trained anesthesiologist Dr. Byung Ho Lee now offers procedure-oriented pain management services three days a week at Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake. Lee cares for patients who have chronic and acute pain issues. A wide range of treatment options are available for conditions such as shingles, sciatic pain, low back pain and pain resulting from surgery or physical trauma.

The care provided by Lee is a non-narcotic approach through interventional procedures. Lee is the only pain management provider in the region to offer a procedure through which an implanted pacemaker-sized device transmits impulses to relieve back, leg and nerve pain.

Lee completed his residency at the University of Chicago and a fellowship in cardiac anesthesia at Rush-Presbyterian Hospital in Chicago. He has more than 20 years of experience and knowledge.

A referral from a primary care provider is needed, and most forms of insurance are accepted. For more information, search “pain management” at www.AdirondackHealth.org. To schedule an appointment, call 518-897-2750.
