If you're considering surgery, you may be wondering about pain management.

Our pain management doctors are fellowship-trained, board-certified anesthesiologists. They provide the most advanced and efficient treatments to help you find relief from surgical discomfort. We know that excellent pain control minimizes stress response from surgery and reduces the risk of complications, both of which can help speed your recovery.

Our highly-skilled acute pain professionals received additional specialized training and credentialing in pain management. Their sole responsibility is to consult with your surgeon prior to your procedure and then to follow up with you during and after surgery.

Members of our team are on-site and available around the clock, every day of the week. We make every effort to ensure the same team is in rotation thorughout the week to provide consistency and continuity of care. Our goal is to ensure surgical patients are comfortable.

We treat pain in a multimodal fashion. This means we do not rely solely on narcotics (e.g. morphine or opioids), but draw on a full spectrum of treatments to achieve the greatest pain relief while minimizing the risk of side effects. Other advanced treatment techniques may include:

  • Epidural catheters
  • Peripheral nerve blocks
  • IV or oral medications, including anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxants or antidepressants
