Why Pain Management?
Every day, millions of people endure pain from a variety of sources. Pain is a natural response by the body to internal and external stimuli and is usually temporary and treatable with conventional methods.
However, when a painful condition persists and does not respond to usual treatments, it can become debilitating and adversely affect an individual's health and quality of life. Expert professional help may be needed in these cases.
The Pain Management Center
The Pain Management Center at Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center offers a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to treating patients with chronic pain. In our new, state-of-the-art facility, dedicated and talented medical specialists use their skills to alleviate pain and improve the quality of life for patients who have endured debilitating, painful conditions.
Each patient receives a comprehensive evaluation and diagnosis by one of our physicians. A treatment plan is formulated and implemented after discussion with the patient and his or her primary care physician. For some patients, the expertise of other disciplines may be needed, and it is available to the staff, including neurology, oncology, physical therapy, rehabilitation medicine, pharmacology and psychiatry.
