The WISCONSIN SOCIETY OF INTERVENTIONAL PAIN PHYSICIANS is committed to being your voice to help you advocate for your patients in your practice. WISIPP is the dominant state society representing interventional pain management physicians in our state. It is important for us to advocate for you to help you help your patients.

What  will  you  have without  ASIPP

ASIPP has been instrumental in ensuring that physicians and patients have access to the care they need. They are your voice on Capitol Hill, as well as in WISCONSIN, to make sure there are rules of fair play to allow you to practice.

Who will replace ASIPP?

There are many societies out there, but in WISCONSIN, there is only one that truly advocates for you. That is the WISCONSIN Society of Interventional Pain Physicians. Without it, you will be left without a voice, and your patients may suffer. Nationally, without ASIPP, all of our practices
would be quite different.

What have you done for ASIPP?

Consider joining ASIPP today and joining our political action committee to help us fight the fight for you.

Interventional Pain

Interventional Pain Management is a discipline of medicine devoted to “diagnosis and treatment of pain-related disorders principally” with the “application of interventional techniques” in managing subacute, chronic, persistent, and intractable pain “independently or in conjunction with other modalities of treatment.” This is the NUCC definition 2002-2003.

Interventional Pain
Management Techniques

Interventional Pain Management Techniques are minimally invasive procedures including percutaneous precision needle placement with placement of drugs in targeted areas; ablation of targeted nerves in some surgical techniques, such as laser or endoscopic discectomy; intrathecal infusion pumps and spinal cord stimulators for the diagnosis and management of chronic, persistent, or intractable pain.

ASIPP Group purchasing – better supplies, pricing, and added value to your practice.

ASIPP has formed a partnership with Henry Schein and PedsPal, a national GPO that has a successful history of negotiating better prices on medical supplies and creating value-added services for the independent physician. Working with MedAssets, PedsPal provides excellent pricing on products like contrast media that alleviates some of the financial pressures you experience today. While the cost of contrast media skyrocketed due to single-dose vile issue, because we have partnered with Henry Schein, this could enable you to purchase Omnipaque 240 mg/50 mL for slightly above $4.50.

It will be easy for ASIPP members in good standing to enroll today and begin utilizing the savings this partnership can bring. Members can join or see sample prices by going to
