Allen County Regional Hospital announces that Dennison R. Hamilton, M.D., MPH, has joined the hospital’s medical staff.

With millions suffering from acute chronic pain each year in the United States, according to the American Academy of Pain Medicine, interventional pain management helps people reduce pain and provides options for preventing or stopping future pain. Hamilton combines cutting-edge treatment options along with interventional pain management and approaches patients with a comprehensive look, rather than just their pain.

“I help patients relieve their pain by looking beyond just medication,” Hamilton says. “There are many therapies to help diagnose, reduce and, possibility, completely relieve a person’s pain.  My ultimate goal is to help my patients get back to their best life by returning them to their normal activities as quickly as possible.”

Hamilton received his Doctor of Medicine at the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Kansas City, Kansas, and a Master’s in Public Health from Saint Louis University in St. Louis, Missouri. He earned a Doctor of Chiropractic at the Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City, Missouri, and a Bachelor of Arts degree at Park College in Parkville, Missouri.
