Pain Clinic is a health care division that focuses on the diagnosis and management of various pain.

Our pain management team may be able to help you manage acute and chronic pain, such as herpeszoster, postherpetic neuralgia, trigeminal neuralgia, complex regional pain syndrome, migraine, tension headache, cluster headache, lumbar canal stenosis, arteriosclerosis obliterans, phantom limb pain, post-stroke pain, postoperative pain and cancer pain.

Pain can either be managed through pharmacological or interventional procedures. There are many interventional procedures available for pain. Interventional procedures include continuous epidural block, various peripheral nerve blocks and neurolytic blocks.

We offer palliative care for outpatient and inpatient by "the palliative care team". The team includes anesthesiologists, physicians, surgeons, psychologists, psychotherapist, nurses, pharmacists, and nutritionists, all working together in a supportive, compassionate environment to address your specific pain and to design a treatment plan tailored specifically to your needs.

We use a multidisciplinary approach to help people take an active role in managing their pain and regaining control of their life. These programs are focused on the total person, not just the pain.
