Pain Management Private Equity – Market Update

Summer 2021


Even with Private Equity investment in Interventional Pain Management (“IPM”) accelerating in recent years, it remains one of the most fragmented areas within subspecialty medicine. Despite the decade long consolidation wave, the majority of physicians in the IPM sector practice in groups with less than 5 providers. Consolidation is largely being driving by the market inefficiencies created by fragmentation.

Private equity groups are looking to leverage size and scale by creating provider density, bringing ancillary services in house, centralizing infrastructure and operations, and streamlining payor negotiations. Broader industry dynamics, including an increase in the aging population and chronic conditions, have created a favorable environment for private equity groups to transact.

PGP expects to see a continued rise in consolidation within the space as more physicians see the value a private equity partner can bring to their practice.
