Dr. Heros Co-Authors Important Work on Pain

Pain is inherently subjective, and the traditional “0-10” pain scale simply isn’t good enough. What one person calls a 6/10, another may call a 4/10 or a 9/10 for that matter. Actively involved in clinical research, Dr. Heros is proud to have partnered with some of the top names in Pain Management around the country for this important work. We are always searching for new and better ways of measuring pain and helping to improve our patients’ quality of life!
