About Pain Management Specialists




Founded in 1998, Pain Management Specialists in Rockville and Frederick, Maryland, is dedicated to optimal treatment of pain caused by spinal conditions, nerve injury, surgery, and cancer. While their expertise is interventional pain management, board-certified physicians Stuart Hough, MD, and Ramani Peruvemba, MD, believe that the best results are achieved through comprehensive, multimodal, patient-centered pain care. They take the time to uncover the intricacies of your pain problem, and to design a plan of care that's right for you. Their treatment plans may include everything from simple education and guidance, to more complex, interventional pain management solutions. They take pride in getting to the root of a problem quickly and efficiently, with a minimum of unnecessary and costly testing and treatment.

Pain Management Specialists is staffed by board-certified interventional pain management physicians that work closely with your primary care doctor and other medical and surgical specialists, psychologists, chiropractors and physical therapists. Each of these specialties brings a unique set of skills to the multidimensional problem of chronic pain.

Unlike others in their field, the team at Pain Management Specialists believes that health care should serve the needs of the patient, not the bottom line. The team delivers high-value care by replacing costly, unnecessary, and dangerous treatments with personal care and attention, compassion, and expertise. They treat a variety of conditions such as back pain, neck pain, herniated discs, complex regional pain syndrome (reflex sympathetic dystrophy), personal injuries, pinched nerves, spinal stenosis and sciatica. Some of the interventional pain management treatment options include cortisone injections, nerve blocks, epidural steroid injections, neuromodulation, spinal cord stimulation, and radiofrequency ablation.
