National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA)
The Norman Marcus Pain Institute is proud to have received the National Center for Quality Assurance Recognition Award for Excellence in Back Pain Treatment. The award is given to centers that provide treatment approaches that have been shown to be most effective while at the same time being least harmful and costly. The award recognizes that many treatments for back pain may not be beneficial. Too many MRIs and CT scans lead to too many Epidural Steroid Injections and back surgeries without producing lasting relief.
