About Advanced Pain Institute

Advanced Pain Institute is a compassionate and comprehensive interventional pain management clinic with offices in Encino, Arcadia, and Pasadena, California. 

Founded by Isaac Michael MineHart, MD, the pain treatment center focuses on nonsurgical therapies for long-term pain relief from all types of chronic pain, such as arthritis. Cutting-edge diagnostic tools and alternative treatments allow Dr. MineHart to take a comprehensive approach to care.

At Advanced Pain Institute, investigating the source of chronic pain is just as important as treating it. The clinic is home to the most advanced diagnostic tools available to pinpoint the exact cause and location of chronic pain, such as pain in the back, hips, knees, and shoulders

From bone scans and lab work to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Smart Edge-Assisted System for Real-Time Pain Monitoring (SERP) and electromyography (EMG), Dr. MineHart gives patients a complete picture of their health before recommending treatment.

Pain relief is never one-size-fits-all at Advanced Pain Institute. Dr. MineHart works with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that targets their unique needs. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and ketamine therapy, corticosteroid injections, and physical therapy are among the many nonsurgical interventions he performs. 

Surgery is always a last resort for Dr. MineHart, but when it’s necessary, he gravitates toward minimally invasive approaches, such as arthroscopic surgery. Regardless of necessary treatment, Dr. MineHart is happy to serve both lien patients and personal injury patients, and offers competitive, reasonable pricing for all services. Dr. MineHartTakes pride in treating complex pain cases that other physicians will not treat.

Finding relief from pain can significantly improve one’s quality of life. To schedule an appointment with an experienced pain management specialist, call Advanced Pain Institute today or schedule a visit online.

I have been under Dr. MineHart’s care for 10 years now and I fear having to go to any other pain management Dr to manage my chronic pain. I pray God preserves Dr. MineHart’s health and mind so he can continue treating us patients in need of his specialty.

I have positive things to say about the Encino location. The outpatient surgical center is comfortable for patients having procedures, once taken into pre-op, changing into a lovely light-institutional green, complete with a light blue mesh shower cap to complete the chic look that's ready for NYC Fashion Week's catwalks. I guess I should qualify my review by 'fessing up to my bit of creative writing. In all reality, the facility is kept immaculately clean, and in compliance with the CDC, State, and local regulations during the Pandemic and Epidemic. Dr Minehart and his team of professionals have always worked with each other like a "well-oiled machine". But that's as far as that metaphor is relevant. The Surgical Medical Center does not operate like an assembly line. Rather, it's a place of kindness, empathy, and caring, over and above the goal of mitigating pain at the source. (Not to mention that the Encino Medical Surgical Center has some of the best coffee around.

MICAELA L. | Oct 13, 2022
I've been a patient for about a decade and I must say Dr. MINEHART is the most caring Dr. He provides excellent patient care by not just treating but trying to find solutions. I would not be able to continue my daily life and work if it were not for Minehart. I also must say his staff is very kind and professional as well. Thank you so much for letting me live a somewhat normal life as possible
