The Pain Treatment Center of the Bluegrass is the largest freestanding facility in the Bluegrass Region dedicated to the treatment of pain. Founded in 1993 by Ballard D. Wright, M.D., the Center specializes in treating patients for whom traditional medical and surgical methods have failed to alleviate their pain.

Our mission at The Pain Treatment Center of the Bluegrass is to provide a multidisciplinary approach to quality and cost-effective health care for the acute or chronic pain patient in an atmosphere of social concern and scholarly inquiry. The Center takes pride in its ability to help those difficult cases in which conservative therapy has failed. 

If you are interested in becoming a patient at the Center, please contact your Healthcare Provider for a referral.

If you are a Healthcare Provider and are interested in referring a patient, please contact the Patient Referral and Evaluation Department at ext.258.

We use the CoverMyMeds online service for all medication pre-authorizations. If you are a patient or pharmacy needing a pre-authorization, please visit the site to begin the process.

The Pain Treatment Center of the Bluegrass is excited to announce the launch of our new Patient Portal. If you are an existing Patient and would like to have convenient online access to your available health information, please provide your email address at your next appointment, or complete this form and return it to us.
