What type of doctor will care for Causalgia patient after failed surgeries?

This patient has had every surgery, procedure, implant, and treatment available done to treat Causalgia also known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). Each doctor I inquire to wants to do everything the patient has already had done. Some of the therapies were repeated after doctor's advice to give them another try. Many doctors want to offer the patient addiction therapy with Buprenorphine but the patient is not interested in getting high. The patient no longer wants to be tortured with various treatments or surgeries. The patient just wants to have health monitored and be prescribed the pain medication that has been giving some relief for whatever days the patient has left on this earth. Does anyone know what type of doctor the patient should be looking for?

You need a pain management physician experienced in treating CRPS. An anesthesiologist might be a good option.

I been helping the patient to search for a doctor to take over care after the current doctor passed away.  I wasn't sure if it could be a certain specialist  or even a general practice.  The patient needs pain medication and it seems more doctors, especially those in medical groups, are making it policy not to prescribe pain medications, even to patients that have a documented need. Thanks for the reply.
I suffered from RSD/Causalagia for years. Their best option is either a anesthesiologist/ pain management center at a large hospital- they are the best versed in treating the condition properly.
