Pain management clinic opens at St. James Mercy

St. James Mercy Health System in Hornell recently opened a pain management for the community.

The clinic, located in the hospital operating room, is overseen by Dr. Gary Wishik, an anesthesiologist who specializes in pain management. The hospital announced that patients will receive relatively prompt scheduling and will receive consultations and treatment in one visit instead of two. A statement from St. James Mercy said pain-management procedures being offered have the potential to reduce pain and improve quality of life for patients with both acute and chronic symptoms. Many patients are able to reduce intake of pain medicines, initiate physical therapy, and/or return to work and resume normal activities of daily living, it said.

Dr. Wishik is accepting referrals to the clinic. He can be reached at (607) 324-8840.
