Medical Advanced Pain Specialists, P.A. (MAPS) began in 1994, when founder David Schultz, MD, was an operating room anesthesiologist with special expertise in regional anesthesia. His skill in performing nerve blocks and spinal injections for surgical anesthesia led to referrals to treat chronic pain patients. He then realized there was a large population of patients with chronic pain with nowhere to turn for medical help.
Dr. Schultz understood that patients with pain needed to be educated on what was happening in their body, why they were hurting and how they could be treated. He had a vision to create a multidisciplinary team of dedicated professionals who specialize in improving lives through managing pain.
MAPS opened its first pain clinic, North Pain Institute, in 1994, followed by its first multidisciplinary pain clinic, Pain Relief Center, in Coon Rapids in 1997. Currently, MAPS has a strong reputation for providing exceptional interventional pain services to patients in multiple locations. This includes providing a comprehensive approach to care with physical therapy, behavioral health and interventional services. From aquatic therapy in rehabilitation pools to one-on-one sessions with licensed mental health professionals, MAPS is considered a leader in the Twin Cities area in terms of patient care.
