Pain Specialists of America, LLC (PSA) has acquired the nonclinical assets of Central Texas Pain Center (CTPC) and Pain Specialists of Austin, two of the leading comprehensive pain management practices serving patients in central and north Texas. PSA is a portfolio company of CommonView Capital, LLC (CommonView). Provident Healthcare Partners (Provident) served as exclusive financial advisor to CTPC. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“Drs. Miller and Frederick have created a market leading interventional pain management practice servicing patients on the I-35 Corridor from Waco to San Antonio that is primed to enter its’ next phase of growth with the support of CommonView and the executive team at the newly formed Pain Specialists of America,” stated Steven Aguiar, Managing Director at Provident.

Dr. Eric Miller, a founder of CTPC, commented that “as the practice of medicine has become more expensive and complex to administer, we believe developing partnerships with other practices and investors like CommonView, who share our vision of providing a holistic, multidisciplinary approach to patient care, is a requirement to delivering optimal patient outcomes. This partnership provides the capital, technological and business resources necessary to provide our clinicians and staff with the support and infrastructure required to deliver high quality patient care. We could not be more excited about pairing our clinical expertise and capabilities with the capital and resources of CommonView.”

Dr. Dan Frederick, a founder of CTPC, stated “our commitment to excellence and treating our patients in a comprehensive manner is fundamental to building and maintaining long term patient and referral source relationships. Our new partnership with CommonView and Pain Specialists of Austin will allow us to continue to pursue our rapid growth plans while maintaining our ability to provide compassionate, high-quality care to our patients, which has been the underpinning of our success.”
