Updated Pain Management Clinic Begins April 24, 2023

We’re excited to announce a revamped Pain Management Clinic is coming to the DCH Outpatient Clinic starting April 24, 2023. On the 2nd and 4th Mondays of every month, Dr. Keith Barnhill, Ph.D, CRNA, ARNP, and Dr. Rich Jacobson, DNP, CRNA, will visit the DCH Outpatient Clinic to provide support for patients living with chronic and acute pain.

As certified anesthetists, Dr. Barnhill and Dr. Jacobson are able to provide a wide range of pain management services including medication management, injections, and other interventions.

If you suffer from pain of the neck, shoulder, hip, knee, lower back, or spine, our pain management experts can consult on the best treatment type for your specific condition. Injectable treatments available in this clinic include epidurals, nerve blocks, nerve injections, radiofrequency ablation, sympathetic blocks, trigger point injections, fascial plane injections, and more.

With an extensive background in these common pain treatments, both Dr. Barnhill and Dr. Jacobson are comfortable with a variety of image-guided procedures using fluoroscopy and ultrasound. Upon request, and when determined medically necessary, they may also perform special procedures customized to your needs.

Dr. Barnhill has practiced pain management and nurse anesthesiology for over 30 years. He received his Master’s in Health Science from the Texas Wesleyan/U.S. Army Graduate Program in Anesthesia Nursing 6F-66F, and earned his Doctorate in Nursing Education from Capella University.  His primary work is clinical pain management and pain education since 2001. He has published in the AANA Journal, Journal of Nursing, and authored several clinical practice and education programs on fluoroscopic radiation safety and Nonsurgical Pain Management (NSPM).

Dr. Jacobson received his Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Iowa. He completed his Master of Science degree from the US Army Program in Anesthesia Nursing in association with the University of Texas – Houston Health Science Center in 2005. He then went on to earn his Doctor of Nursing Practice degree from Northeastern University. He has spent the last 10 years providing anesthesia in all levels of care.
