The practice was founded in September of 2000 as Advanced Anesthesia Associates and Pain Medicine and was later renamed in 2008 as Advanced Pain Medicine Associates to better describe the activities of our practice. In January 2009 we moved into our new state of the art building that has been designed to be as "green" as possible and provide an efficient use of space as well as provide an open, airy feeling. We provide care for patients throughout Kansas as well as patients from Colorado, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Missouri. Our physicians and staff are prepared to handle anything from the simplest to the most complex pain problems. We provide care for acute, chronic and malignant pain.
