Katherine Murphy, APRN-BC
“Treating chronic and acute pain is an evolving process that requires work to control. Part of that control can come from knowledge of how the body works, pain triggers and a variety of treatments that can be used in tandem to achieve the best outcome for each individual. “
I enjoy helping people return to doing some of the things they love most in their lives. From baking pies to driving race cars, your goal is my goal: to give back to you the necessary skills and fun in your life.
As a team, the patient and provider, in conjunction with a variety of treatment modalities, can achieve goals for maximum function and comfort.
“My mother was a nurse, a graduate of Carnie Hospital in Boston. I started as a candy striper at Melrose Wakefield Hospital in a decade long, long ago, then went on to become a nurse’s aide, then entered nursing school at Purdue. I completed 10 years in the ICU at Community Hospital in Munster, Indiana, then returned to Purdue for my Nurse Practitioner degree. I can look back and say that my mother was the smartest person I knew, with a life-long dedication to her field. She was over 70 when she retired, but I’m not sure nurses ever really retire.
I spent many years in hospice, general practice and rehab medicine between Chicago and ‘back home’ part-time, then full-time beginning in 2001.”

“When not treating patients, I enjoy… traveling. I love cruises – I have been on 19. I love road trips to see where my car will bring me, lazy days on my dock and celebrating my favorite holiday, the 4th of July, with my children, grandchildren and family.”
