Welcome to Interventional Pain Management – Dr. Thomas Synek M.D.
Welcome to our Interventional Pain Management Clinic
Dr. Thomas R. Synek, MD is Board Certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Dr. Synek has been practicing medicine after earning his Medical Degree from the University of Texas Medical School-Houston in 2002. Upon completing his Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residency at the University of Texas-Southwestern in Dallas, TX he launched his career in private practice. In June 2013, Dr. Synek and his wife Amanda, RN, opened Interventional Pain Management, a pain management clinic enabling them to better serve those living in pain throughout the Houston area.
Dr. Thomas Synek believes in providing quality healthcare, educating his patients and displaying a personable bedside manner. By conducting an extensive physical exam along with reviewing a patient’s medical history, Dr. Synek creates a successful pain management plan to help clients return to their active lifestyles. He believes that with healthy living habits and proper pain management, there is no limit to a patient’s success. His pain management clinic is convenient and the staff both friendly and helpful.
The staff and I are here for you, the patient. The design of this clinic is to offer a comprehensive treatment plan individualized for each patient. If you simply want education about your pain, and a good diagnosis, I will do that. If you have had several spine surgeries already, and are interested in a pump to deliver medications around your spinal cord, I can also assist with that. Above all we strive to bring dignity to the patient with pain, and to encourage those who wish to continue working despite being in pain.
