Cilea, Advanced Wellness founder. “We are eager to add MUA to our expanding list of innovative pain management techniques.”

MUA treatment is proven to be beneficial approach to healing chronic pain sufferers because of its team approach. The lineup includes an anesthesiologist, the primary physician performing the procedure, and the first assistant, who is also certified in the treatment. Completed in a hospital setting, patients also undergo a series of outpatient visits after the procedure.
