Fort HealthCare and Advanced Pain Management, a regional provider of medical services for pain management, recently announced a formal partnership agreement that will expand the level of services available in the Fort Atkinson area. The agreement calls for a joint venture relationship between the two partners. Advanced Pain Management will relocate current services from the Specialty Clinic at Fort Memorial Hospital to a new location at 1604 Madison Avenue, Fort Atkinson. Construction is underway to complete a free-standing ambulatory surgery center intended to open in April of this year.

Dr. Douglas Keehn, an Advanced Pain Management physician, has provided care at Fort Memorial Hospital for a number of years. With the opening of the new center, he will increase his presence in Fort Atkinson to two days per week. Keehn earned his medical degree from Des Moines University Osteopathic Medical Center and later completed a residency in anesthesiology at the University of Wisconsin Hospitals and Clinics. His interest in pain management took him to the University of Colorado where he completed fellowship training.

Patients served by Advanced Pain Management physicians are those seeking treatment for back pain, neck pain, headaches, compression factures, disc herniation, pelvic pain, chronic regional pain syndrome (CRPS), diabetic neuropathic pain, cancer treatment pain, work injury, sports related injuries, spinal stenosis, knee and shoulder injuries, carpal tunnel and fibromyalgia. While Keehn treats a broad spectrum of pain problems, his specific clinical interests include back pain and migraine headaches.

Advanced Pain Management is one of the largest pain management groups in the country, with more than 25 board-certified/eligible physicians offering the most advanced techniques for pain control. Advanced Pain Management physicians operate out of more than 35 locations in Wisconsin, including metro Milwaukee, the greater Madison area, Racine, Sheboygan and Green Bay, as well as in Mankato, Minn.
