The original small clinic, located on Southside, proved too small to handle the large number of patients suffering chronic pain who sought the doctors' care. In 1999, The BPC moved to expanded clinical space on Valleydale Road. Today, The BPC is in new offices at 7500 Hugh Daniel Dr. Suite 300, Birmingham.

With the success of The BPC in alleviating the suffering of patients in chronic pain, additional physicians joined the team. Dr. Wayne Gossman joined The BPC in 1998, bringing his professional expertise in psychiatry, further advancing psychological/medical chronic pain management.

Over time, The BPC has continued to expand its services. For patients suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee, hyaluronate injections have provided 6 to 18 months relief of knee pain. Interventional diagnostic services such as discography and myelography are available. Radiofrequency therapy has been expanded to include the latest pulsed-therapy techniques, safely enabling long acting nerve blocks for virtually any type of nerve pain.

In 2001, Dr. Jay Heisler launched The BPC Research Department. Dr. Heisler now serves as Director of Research and Behavioral Health. He has conducted several important pharmaceutical trials and more are currently underway. Patients directly benefit from The BPC research; many patients have received treatment they would otherwise not have had access to.

Through the caring staff of The BPC, thousands of patients just like you, who had resigned themselves to lives of chronic suffering, have had the quality, dignity and mobility of daily life returned to them. At The BPC, we treat the whole person because the whole person suffers when pain persists. With excellent medical management, appropriate therapy, a caring staff, and recognition and attention to the psychological, social, family, and spiritual issues associated with chronic pain, patients at BPC recover their lives and sense of well-being. At The BPC, our team of physicians, nurses, and staff are committed to reduce, control and alleviate chronic pain.
