  • Determining the cause of your pain through advanced diagnostic tests

  • Teaching skills that will make coping with pain easier and will help you regain control of your body and your life

Due to the highly specialized nature of our department, we are able to offer patients the latest, most effective treatments for pain.

Expertise

Most of the treatments that are available through Pain Management are not widely available through community-based, general practice physicians.

We recommend that people experiencing chronic pain start with their primary care physician. When pain is not relieved with standard treatment, the Department of Pain Management should be the next step.
