Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a disorder that may occur following a surgical procedure, heart attack, stroke, or a physical injury (such as a fracture). CRPS, also called reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome (RSD), typically affects the arms or legs and may cause swelling and pain, impair immobility, and impact bone and skin tissues. When diagnosed and addressed early on, CRPS generally can be treated effectively, placing remission within reach. The qualified team of specialists at Tricity Pain Associates offers the expertise and skill needed to treat your CRPS symptoms. We utilize the most advanced, innovative techniques to ease pain and other symptoms and help you enjoy greater comfort in your daily life. If you believe CRPS is impacting your health and well-being, we welcome you to contact our South Austin or Round Rock, TX facility to make an appointment with a member of our pain management team.
"I found Dr Kim to be honest and to-the-point. I'm particularly analytical, and I was getting intolerant of the advice and information I was receiving about my injury. Dr. Kim went through every word of my MRI result with me so I had full understanding. He was very matter-of-fact, which is what I wanted. I get the picture he has a very good read on his patients. Fortunately, I did not have to go down the surgical path, on recommendation from Dr.Kim. And I do feel better now."- D.L. / Google / May 10, 2021

"Dr Kim and his staff are compassionate and caring on a level rarely found in this field. Rather than just simply prescribing cookie-cutter pain drugs , he and his team approach the whole individual to positively and effectively develop a plan to manage YOUR pain. He is kind and empathetic and takes the time to get to know you and really treat you- the person. I have felt so much better in the last 6 months than I have in years. Thank you for giving me my hope back that pain is treatable in the RIGHT hands. He and his team are a Blessing . Thanks again for everything you do. I highly recommend him!"- M.F. / Google / May 04, 2021
"The workers at the front desk are super nice and you're never in the waitingroom too long. It's a small office but it's very nice and super clean! I love that they stay covid-ready. Also Doctor Kim and his assistant are super nice! They joke with you and laugh with you unlike most other doctors."- A.M. / Google / Apr 30, 2021
"Dr Kim was awesome! His bedside manner was amazing, he listened, he didn’t just hear, he listened. He explained everything in detail. He reviewed old and new records of mine and images and took heed of area of interest. I’m not a simple case, but he advised me on all necessary next steps for me. Thank you Dr Kim for your honesty, compassion, and concerns regarding my situation"- R.D. / Google / Apr 22, 2021
