Welcome and Mission
Interventional Pain Care L.L.C began in 2009, when founder Suresh Krishnan, MD, was an Anesthesiologist working at SSM Hospital Lake saint Louis, with special expertise in regional anesthesia. His skill in performing nerve blocks and spinal injections for surgical anesthesia led to referrals to treat chronic pain patients. He then realized there was a large population of patients with chronic pain with nowhere to turn for medical help.
Dr. Krishnan understood that patients with pain needed to be educated on what was happening in their body, why they were hurting and how they could be treated. He had a vision to create a multidisciplinary team of dedicated professionals who specialize in improving lives through managing pain.
Interventional Pain Care L.L.C opened its first pain clinic, TROY MO in 2009, followed by a second location in O Fallon Missouri in 2010.Currently, Interventional Pain Care has a strong reputation for providing exceptional interventional pain services to patients in multiple locations.

I can walk long distances now, do housework, be happy, visit my children, take vacations and do it without severe pain that has occupied me all my life basically. If you need someone who actually listens, has compassion and will really work hard to give you your life back with severe debilitating pain, I highly recommend Dr.Krishnan.

I don’t dread going to my appointments because they feel like family to me. The shots (and I am telling the truth) most of the time causes me no pain at all, when I need to talk to him, ne never gives me the feeling that he needs to hurry me up. He truly is a fine doctor!”
