New Pain Management Specialist at Aspirus Riverview Clinic

WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. – Aspirus Riverview Clinic in Wisconsin Rapids is pleased to announce the addition of Board Certified, Pain Management Specialist, Kris Ferguson, MD, to the specialty care team.

“When you suffer from chronic pain, you know how debilitating it can be,” said Ferguson. “When pain begins to affect your daily quality of life, it might be time to see a specialist to assess your pain and look at treatment options.”

A pain management specialist evaluates the source and type of pain and treats it with a wide range of treatments and procedures. The type of pain needing treatment could be a sudden problem caused by a traumatic event or long-lasting, chronic, pain such as headaches or neck/back pain.

“When I meet with my patients, I take the time to thoroughly assess their pain and determine the best way to treat them, which could range from exercise, to medication-assisted treatment, physical therapy, injections or even surgical interventions if necessary,” Ferguson says. “I truly value the difference I can make in someone’s life.”

Kris Ferguson, MD is a highly skilled, dedicated physician trained in pain management. He received his medical degree from Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan, and is board certified in anesthesiology and pain management.

Aspirus Riverview Clinic is located at 410 Dewey Street in Wisconsin Rapids. Dr. Ferguson is now accepting new patients; appointments can be made by calling 715-421-7474.
