Patients with cancer sometimes experience pain due to the cancer spreading to nearby organs, nerves and/or bones. Other patients may experience residual pain following radiation treatments, chemotherapy or surgery. In most cases, the oncology physician and advanced practice providers are excellent at prescribing the proper medications to control this pain. But at times, your oncology team may refer you to north shore pain management specialists, Dr. Kenneth Branton and Dr. Charles Ho.
As pain specialists, Beverly Hospital’s and Anna Jaques’ physicians, Dr. Branton and Dr. Ho have a deep understanding of the complexities of cancer pain and the challenges that patients face in managing it. They work closely with oncology physicians and advanced practice providers to develop customized pain management plans for each patient. These plans may include a variety of treatments, such as medication management, nerve blocks, and other interventional pain management procedures such a celiac plexus, hypogastric plexus and ganglion impar neurolysis.
Patients who are referred to Dr. Branton and Dr. Ho can expect to receive compassionate, individualized care from two of the leading pain specialists in the north shore and the Merrimack Valley of Massachusetts. With their extensive training and experience, they are well-equipped to help patients find relief from even the most challenging types of cancer pain.
