On November 4th and 5th, 2017 the India Pain Update conference took place in Dehli, India, where an elite panel of international and national pain management physicians discussed the latest trends and topics related to the field of pain medicine. Pain Specialists of Austin’s own pain management specialist, Dr. Vivek Mahendru, was invited to be part of this elite panel of international and national pain physicians.
