The Pain and Spine Center

The Pain and Spine Center at North Fulton Hospital was established in 1990. The role of the Pain and Spine Center is to help reduce or alleviate discomfort in patients with acute, subacute, chronic or cancer-related pain. Our goals are to improve a patient’s quality of life, improve their sleeping pattern, reduce the amount of pain relieving medications used, and if needed, teach one to cope with how pain has affected their life. Patients are seen on a doctor-referral or self-referral basis. The Pain and Spine Center’s physicians work closely with one’s referring physician to create a treatment plan individualized for each patient’s needs. Pain and Spine Center Number: 770-751-2719.

As of July 1990, Georgians are able to utilize two different documents to express to their health care providers their wishes regarding their health care should they become unconscious or otherwise unable to convey their wishes. The Living Will enables a patient to direct that "life-sustaining procedures" be withheld or withdrawn, and a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care enables a patient to appoint a third party to make health care decisions in the event the patient cannot.

Each of these documents is explained in greater detail in the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, Title 31,  (contact your personal attorney or click here if you have additional questions pertaining to Advance Drectives). Additional information is available through Patient Relations at extension 2798.
