Welcome to Valley Medical and Wellness!
Valley Medical and Wellness is a premier chronic pain medicine and addiction medicine practice with offices in Burnsville, Minneapolis, Woodbury, Rochester, and Bemidji Minnesota. Our mission is to help people get back to loving life.
At all five of our clinics we strive to improve the quality of life for those suffering from pain and/or addiction. We employ a comprehensive approach that focuses on overall wellness along with progressive and knowledgeable medical treatments. We work closely with our patients and we recognize that dealing with pain and/or addiction can impact every aspect of your lives, including your self-worth, physical health, jobs, relationships with friends and family, finances, and mental health.
Under the guidance of Svetlana Zaydman, DO, and Ashwin George, MD, our patients receive customized treatment that identifies their pain or addiction problem at its source. Our treatment goals and puts a plan into action that helps achieve these goals. We are a member of the Fairview Physicians Association (FPA) and are able to refer out a full range of medical services.
Our pain management program focuses on improving daily function and quality of life by reducing pain and dependence to opioids. Pain management strategies are personalized to each patient and incorporate exercise, nutritional habits, and interventional pain procedures to help further improve function. We treat a variety of pain conditions—see our services page for a list of our commonly treated conditions!
Our addiction treatment program provides medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for using proven medications like Buprenorphine (e.g. Suboxone, Sublocade) or Naltrexone (e.g. Vivitrol) to help stabilize cravings and withdrawals. This helps reduce dependence on opiates (e.g. prescription pain pills, heroin, fentanyl), stimulants (e.g. cocaine, methamphetamines), benzodiazepines (e.g. Xanax), marijuana, and alcohol. In addition, our providers perform mental health and wellness screenings to understand the overall health of the patient.
We are also uniquely able to treat a patient’s pain, which is a common trigger for patients with substance use disorder. When counseling is needed for substance abuse, we partner with licensed counselors within the community and across the state for comprehensive assessments, individual and group therapy, and patient education.
STI Testing and Treatment
VMW also offers testing for the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and women's sexual wellness issues, including fungal infections. Our STI testing is fast and completely confidential and we can prescribe treatment via a remote telemedicine visit.
