The Department of Anesthesiology Center for Pain Management was established in 1984. The goal of our treatment is to help patients gain control over their pain and lead normal, active and meaningful lives at home and in their community.

Working with each patient is always a challenge and much thought, time and effort is given to each individual. By doing this we are all continually learning more about chronic pain and how best to manage it. Most of all we have learned to appreciate the uniqueness of each individual patient. 

Research, Education and Training

Our program not only meets current standards for care of chronic and acute pain, but also works to improve future care through education and research. We keep abreast of new advances and, if appropriate, can refer patients to research studies on pain problems for which answers are still needed.
