Pain Management

The Ithaca Center for Pain Management

At the Ithaca Center for Pain Management, we understand that patients suffering with chronic pain are under considerable stress. We listen carefully, so that we can establish a partnership with you and work effectively as your advocate.

Our approach here is multidisciplinary, because in the treatment of chronic pain it is necessary to consider all of its aspects—social, psychological, economic, physical, and spiritual. We frequently recommend conventional medical treatment in combination with complementary or alternative approaches.

Chronic pain problems

Our caregivers treat patients with a variety of chronic pain problems including:

neck and back pain from spinal disorders, herniated disks, and osteoporosis
myofascial pain
chronic regional pain syndrome
post-herpetic neuralgia
intractable cancer pain
post-operative pain that remains unresolved.

 

Patient services

The scope of pain management includes both medical and non-medical therapies. Our pain management specialists treat pain with medication, nerve blocks, and implanted technologies (such as dorsal column stimulators). The pain management team also works closely with a number of physicians and area health-care practitioners on a referral basis, including specialists in neurology, physiatry (physical medicine specialists), psychology, physical and occupational therapy, chiropractic, massage, acupuncture, and spiritual healing. An individual treatment plan is designed for each patient, depending on the patient’s problem and preferences.

 

Our staff

Our pain management center is staffed by our director, Dr. Andrew Morpurgo, board-certified physiatrist and medical director of the Medical Rehabilitation Unit at Cayuga Medical Center, and Dr. Anthony Sanito, who is a board-certified specialist in anesthesiology and pain management. They are assisted by Christina Morse, NP and a staff of experienced registered nurses.

 

To make an appointment

We require a physician referral to our program. Your physician will need to provide us with current records including all MRI, XRay, or CAT Scan reports. This information may be faxed to 607-274-4288. Our physicians review each referral to insure that we can provide you with the care and treatment you require. Our office will contact you with an appointment.

We are located on the second floor within Cayuga Medical Center, near the visitor elevators. Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm. We can be reached at 607-274-4287 or painclinic@cayugamed.org.
