AUSTIN, TEXAS, US, April 5, 2021 / — Spindletop Pain Management Company, Inc. and Tricity Pain Associates, P.A., a leading provider of pain management services, announced that it has acquired Austin Premier Surgery Center. Spindletop Pain Management partnered with Tricity Pain Associates in 2018 to become the leading physician-led, physician-owned national leader in pain management services.

Tricity Pain Associates continues its expansion to serve more patients and strengthen its presence across Central Texas.
