Coastal Ortho

As of 5/31/2023, Dr. Seely will no longer be providing Interventional Pain Management at Coastal Ortho. Dr. Seely has decided to move on with his career which will take him away from providing interventional pain management services. Sadly, due to his departure we will no longer be able to continue to provide interventional pain management services at Coastal Ortho. We feel there is a strong need for interventional pain management in our area and it is unfortunate that we will no longer be able to provide this service for the midcoast community.

With the departure of Dr. Seely, patient care will be transferred to Kristen Schroeder-Cyr, NP. Kristen will continue to book appointments until 7/28/2023 and will provide limited pain management services for her patients and for those who wish to continue under her management until that time. For those who require further interventions, Kristen will refer them to the appropriate pain management provider.

Dr. Kulju and Alisa Siulinski, FNP-C will continue to accept referrals for orthopedic spinal pain. In addition, Alisa will continue to accept referrals for trigger point injections and will continue care for Kristen's patients who wish to continue pain management under Alisa.

Kristen has strong connections to the interventional pain management community as she has been providing physiatry and pain management services since 2007. She will take the next few months to determine what is next for her career. We wish her the best and hope she continues to provide the compassionate care that she has been providing for the last 29 years in healthcare.

Thank you for utilizing our pain management services and our apologies for any inconvenience this causes.
