This past weekend, National Spine & Pain Centers hosted its second annual business focused pain management conference entitled The Business of Pain Medicine: 21st Century Challenges & Solutions. Under the leadership of Les Zuckerman, M.D., Sanjay Bakshi, M.D., and Sudhir Diwan, M.D., premier thought leaders in pain management were brought in to speak across a breadth of business and clinical-related issues critical to the pain management specialty. In all, over 300 attendees, physicians and administrators, traveled from all over the country to the Marriott Marquis in Washington, DC to participate in this unique conference.

Across the U.S. and the world, pain management practitioners often gather to discuss clinical areas of interest. Prior to the inception of this conference, there has never been such an event dedicated to helping pain management practices survive and thrive in this increasingly complex, dynamic climate.

“We believe the Business of Pain Medicine: 21st Century Challenges and Solutions fills a real need in our community, creating an open forum for business discussions and brain-storming. Everyone left with ideas about how to better run their practices and contacts to help make it happen. We look forward to an expanding agenda in the future, more open problem solving time for our participants with our faculty and their peers, and developing new business forums for IPM as a whole,” says Dr. Les Zuckerman, Chief Medical Officer of National Spine & Pain Centers.

This year’s keynote speaker was Pulitzer Prize-Winning writer and investigative reporter, Bob Woodward. He spoke to attendees about the significance of leadership, shared compelling stories of his lengthy history of interviewing U.S. Presidents over course of decades, and thanked physicians for providing quality care and supporting patients who suffer from acute and chronic pain.
