Iola, Ks. - Allen County Regional Hospital has added a new pain management clinic to its list of specialty services.

Starting November 10, Adam Madl, DO, with Saint Luke’s Anesthesiology Specialists, will provide a specialty clinic at the hospital in Iola for patients who suffer from chronic or acute pain.

Pain clinics at the Allen County Regional Hospital Specialty Clinic will be scheduled on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month. Dr. Madl began holding pain management clinics at the Anderson County Hospital Specialty Clinic in August and will continue to see patients in Garnett on the first and third Tuesdays of each month.

“We’re excited to have Dr. Madl treating patients at our Kansas regional hospitals,” shared Bev Shaul, Director of Nursing, Allen County Regional Hospital and Anderson County Hospital. “Pain clinics will be scheduled weekly, alternating between the two hospitals. This will provide scheduling options and allow patients to see the doctor more quickly, while still keeping close to home for care.”

Dr. Madl is board-certified in pain medicine and anesthesiology. He specializes in providing interventional, opioid-free options to achieve pain relief, treating minor to more debilitating pain conditions.

Common conditions treated include axial neck and back pain, radicular neck and back pain (sciatica), spinal stenosis, post-laminectomy syndrome or failed back surgery syndrome, post-herpetic neuralgia, myofascial pain, neuropathic pain, sacroiliac (SI) joint pain, and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS).

During an initial in-person consultation, Dr. Madl will order appropriate imaging and discuss next steps, which may include a referral to physical therapy along with scheduling other outpatient procedures such as nerve blocks or injections.

“Patients can expect to discuss the different options available for their pain therapy,” said Dr. Madl. “I will work closely with my patients and their families, providing guidance to help make the best decision based on each patient’s unique situation.”

Dr. Madl likes to get to know his patients and learn what their specific goals are, whether that’s casting a fishing rod, going on a trip, playing with a grandchild, or being able to return to work. “I want to help motivate my patients by focusing on the activities they enjoy most, and together, we will work to relieve the burden of pain.”

Dr. Madl was born and raised in northeast Kansas and has always been drawn to rural communities and the people who live there. He understands the challenges of rural medicine and looks forward to bringing the latest medical therapies to his patients right where they live.

After earning his medical degree from Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona, Dr. Madl completed a residency in anesthesiology at the University of Kansas Medical Center, followed by a chronic pain fellowship at UCLA. He has practiced in both hospital-based and private practice settings, but his passion is in rural, critical access medicine. In his free time, Dr. Madl enjoys exercising and spending time outdoors - hunting, fishing, or helping with chores on his family’s farm.
