Rockville, Md.-based National Spine & Pain Centers has added Dallas Pain Consultants to its portfolio, increasing its network to more than 130 locations in 13 states, according to a May 5 news release from National Spine & Pain Centers.
Dallas Pain Consultants is a five-physician practice led by pain management specialists Trevor Kraus, MD, and Darren Schuhmacher, MD. The addition expands National Spine & Pain Centers's presence to 18 locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area.
"The addition of [Dallas Pain Consultants] and its world-class providers ... will not only expand our footprint, it will also result in greater collaboration among physicians who specialize in minimally invasive spine and pain procedures," National Spine & Pain Centers President Douglas Badertscher said in the news release.
Dr. Kraus said the partnership will provide his practice's physicians with "firsthand access to leading researchers, training on innovative treatments, and also enjoy world-class back-office support."
National Spine & Pain Centers said it expects to see 1.2 million patients this year.
