As of August 18th, St. Mary’s and Spine Midwest are integrating services to establish a comprehensive spine and pain management center. This collaboration is a natural advancement of our work together. St. Mary’s and the Spine Midwest team, including Dr. Jeff Lehmen, Dr. W. Blake Rodgers, Ed Gerber, PA-C and Kevin Huffman, PA-C will focus on creating a holistic approach to axial-based pain through a patient-partnering philosophy, delivering the evidence-based care that achieves the personal health goals of each patient.
The Center will expand services beyond procedural interventions and set new standards for evaluating and treating these painful conditions. This will include the introduction of a clinical nurse navigator and a team based approach to understand not only their condition but also their daily routines, diet and most importantly their personal health goals so the best course of care is provided.
We are excited by this opportunity to expand services to our patients in mid-Missouri and continue delivering exceptional care with our Spine Midwest partners.
