From the Doctor
MAPS began in 1994 when founder David Schultz, MD, realized there was a large population of patients with chronic pain who had nowhere to turn for medical help. He had a vision to create a multidisciplinary team of dedicated professionals who specialize in improving lives by effectively managing pain.
Today, MAPS has a strong reputation for providing comprehensive pain services to patients at multiple Twin Cities locations. These services include medication management, physical therapy, behavioral health care and minimally invasive interventional treatment options. MAPS is also involved in advanced research for pain medications, implantable pain control systems and new pain relieving procedures. From aquatic therapy in rehabilitation pools to individual counseling with licensed mental health professionals, MAPS is considered a leader in patient care.
MAPS Mission: MAPS is a team of specialized health care professionals whose purpose is to relieve pain and improve function in patients with persistent pain that has failed to respond to routine medical care. MAPS medical specialists combine advanced medical knowledge, technical expertise and compassion with the courage to implement creative solutions in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with acute, chronic and cancer pain.
