Atlantic General Pain Center

About This Location

It happens to too many people: Whether caused by an injury or an infection, chronic pain can affect their overall well-being – leading to a diminished quality of life.

At Atlantic General Pain Center, led by Dr. Wadid Zaky, we’ve done something good about that. Our program is designed to provide comprehensive procedures and therapies – not merely to manage and control your pain, but ultimately to relieve it and improve your quality of life.

We also offer a two-week PAIN REHABILITATION PROGRAM, as a complement to the medical interventions Dr. Zaky performs.

DIAGNOSTIC AND THERAPEUTIC PROCEDURES

We offer a comprehensive set of specialized services and therapies to treat many conditions related to chronic pain – conditions like:

  • Neuropathy and peripheral nerve damage from diabetes
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD)
  • Neck pain and back pain, including work-related injuries
  • Persistent pain after neck or back surgery
 

Among the Advanced Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services Provided Are:

Advanced Neuromodulation – Using electrical impulses at certain points in the neck and spine, neuromodulation alters nerve activity to treat pain very effectively. (These include DRG, HF10, DCS and sacral therapies.)

High-frequency modulation – We’re the only program on Maryland’s Eastern Shore offering this form of therapy. With high-frequency modulation, patients cannot detect the stimulation, and this form of therapy can relieve pain for many individuals when lower frequency therapy has proven ineffective.

Nerve blocks – Including epidurals as well as ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve blocks.

Intradiscal electrothermal annuloplasty (IDET) – Using heat to treat pain.

Inter-articular injections and injections at pain points.

Implants – Key implant services provided by Atlantic General Pain Center include:

  • Spinal cord stimulators
  • Pain pumps for intra-spinal drug delivery

Appointments can be made by referral. The center can be reached by calling (410)-629-6469 or faxing (410) 641-3341.
