Unparalleled, Quality Care with an Individual Approach


At Innovative Pain Specialists, we focus on quality care and outcomes-based medicine in order to improve your quality of life and well-being. Each of our physicians has unique and specific training within the field of Interventional Pain Management.  Our main goal is to treat you with compassion and respect, and diagnose the cause of your pain or your condition.  We will establish a treatment plan that is appropriate for you as an individual. 


In addition, we feel that the public should be informed about their physician's background, education and clinical training.  After all, your physician will be making decisions regarding your health, so wouldn't you want to know about their educational and clinical background?  Many physicians describe themselves as "pain management" physicians, and interestingly enough, they lack comprehensive training and/or experience. Unfortunately, this is sometimes not readily apparent to the public.  On the surface, many people cannot tell the difference between one pain management practice versus another.  As a result, we would like to educate you, as a potential patient, about our practice because we feel that education and experience can influence how your doctor chooses to treat you as an individual patient.  


Our doctors have both the appropriate residency training as well as comprehensive fellowship training in the field in which they practice.  In a formal sense, this field is known as Pain Medicine, and is recognized by the American College of Graduate Medical Education.  Often, it is generally referred to as Pain Management or Interventional Pain Management.  The path to being a specialist in this field includes:  1. Specialty training in a residency program (such as Anesthesiology), and 2. Sub-specialty training (known as a fellowship) in the field of Pain Medicine.  


However, our physicians don't stop there.  There is a rigorous process that our physicians have chosen to complete, and this is known as Board Certification.  This extensive process involves the completion of many years of training as described above, in addition to successful completion of written tests and oral exams by a panel of experts in the field.  Both Dr. Paul Marsiglia and Dr. Demetrios Louis have not only completed all of the necessary training as described above (Internship, Residency, & Fellowship), but have also earned board-certification in not one, but two fields!  This includes the specialty of Pain Medicine as well as the specialty of Anesthesiology.  Please note:  our physicians are on staff at Northwest Community Hosptial (Arlington Heights, IL), as well as Advocate Condell Medical Center (Libertyville, IL). 


So, now that you are familiar with us, our practice, and our philosophy, please feel free to give us a call or schedule a consultation so that we can focus on you and your well-being!

Cheryl T.

I have been coming to Innovative Pain Specialist for almost 4 years and I really love the staff and physicians. Everyone is friendly and the staff always have a smile on their faces. I would highly recommend these doctors to anyone suffering from pain. I cannot say enough good things about the doctors and staff. Everyone is extremely friendly and they go out of their way to help all of their patients. The doctors believe in "old fashioned " care in that you can talk directly to your doctor or you can send your doctor a message via the patient portal. I love that there is no physician assistant or nurses who respond to your questions.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Dr. Marsiglia and his staff. I went into the office with horrible lower back pain from my arthritis and Dr. Marsiglia took the time to really listen to me and came up with an ideal treatment plan. I was in such pain and could barely walk, he fit me in within days for an epidural injection. Since that day, I have been feeling much better. Dr. Marsiglia is very smart, compassionate and takes time to help you. The staff in his office are very nice and caring as well. I am so happy to have Dr. Marsiglia as my Dr.
