WELCOME TO KROLL CARE

Compassionate pain management awaits you at Kroll Care, Georgia licensed pain clinic # 350. Our goal is to meet the needs of patients so as to provide them with the opportunity of having a meaningful quality of life. To achieve this we utilize multiple modalities. Unlike many interventional “pain” clinics, KROLL CARE, PC's approach NEVER requires that a patient receive any of these procedures as a condition of obtaining treatment with appropriate medications.

Whether your best treatment will consist of an interventional procedure performed in our state of the art procedure room by a physician with more than 20 years’ experience, and/or taking medications (narcotics and non-narcotics), and/or wearing a brace and/or using a Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator, and/or using a topical application, and/or receiving chiropractic care, and/or participating in CBT – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with one of our Doctors of Psychology, and/or reviewing your X-rays taken in our digital X-ray suite, your treatment goals and methods will be decided by you and your providers together.

Daily Morphine Equivalents

The relative potency of opioid medications are calculated in Daily Morphine Equivalents (ME’s). This allows a comparison to the medication “load” from medication to medication. There are some variations among the many conversion calculators but all agencies now use some form of ME.

Here are examples of relative ME’s.:

Oxycodone 60 mg/day = 90 ME.  100 mg/day = 150 ME

Methadone 20 mg/day = 80 ME; 21 mg = 168 ME; 30mg/day = 240 ME; 50 mg/day = 500 ME

Hydromorphone (Dilaudid) 22 mg/day = 88 ME.  37.5 mg/day = 150 ME

Fentanyl transdermal patch 37.5 mcg/hr. for 3 days = 90 ME.  62.5 mcg/hour = 150 ME

Morphine and hydrocodone, 90 mg/day = 90 ME.  150 mg/day = 150 ME

Tramadol 900 mg/day = 90 ME.

Belbuca 300 mcg/day = 9ME; 600 mcg/day = 18ME; 1.8 mg/day [maximum dose] = 54ME

Medicare has announced that beginning January 1, 2019, opioid amounts greater than 90 Daily Morphine Equivalents (ME) will not be automatically approved and we fully expect other insurers to follow suit.
