Top 10 Achievements
ASIPP had many, many achievements, we all think and Lax thinks is the most important are membership on the CAC. Everyone was negative about this, but Lax pursued it and we finally got through legislature.
The second one is starting of Pain Physician journal. Lax started this single handedly. If you remember all the articles used to be written by him in the entire journal, now he puts only a few of them. This is one of the journals in clinical neurology group. Impact factor is higher than Spine, Spine Journal, Anesthesiology, Clinical Journal of Pain, Pain itself, and other journals. This is the only practical journal for interventional pain management.
NASPER of course is the first ever legislation which passed the congress and was signed into law which was proposed by an organization. Because of the NASPER today we have prescription drug monitoring programs in all states except Missouri which is coming up.
All others include, of course, specialty designation, practice expense guidelines, education, board certification, membership in AMA and state societies and multitude of issues related to reimbursement which are too many for me to go talk about here.
This essentially increased from $59.04 at one time to $156.79 keeping our reimbursement significantly from falling.

Interventional Pain Management
Interventional Pain Management is the discipline of medicine devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of pain-related disorders principally with the application of interventional techniques in managing sub-acute, chronic, persistent, and intractable pain, independently or in conjunction with other modalities of treatment.
Interventional Pain Management Techniques
Interventional pain management techniques are minimally invasive procedures, including percutaneous precision needle placement, with placement of drugs in targeted areas or ablation of targeted nerves and some surgical techniques, such as laser or endoscopic diskectomy, intrathecal infusion pumps and spinal cord stimulators, for the diagnosis and management of chronic, persistent or intractable pain
