A Model of Compassion and Excellence
Pain is an unpleasant physical and emotional experience that affects millions of Americans from the very young to the very old .
Acute and chronic pain are associated with increased levels of stress, de-conditioning and sleep disturbance. Untreated pain leads to physical impairment and emotional suffering.
The Pain Medicine Center at the University of Chicago Medicine upholds the mission to provide superior healthcare compassionately, always mindful a patient's dignity and individuality. To this end, our staff of board certified anesthesiologists and pain specialists offers individualized treatment plans focusing on physical improvement and enhanced quality of life.
As part of the University of Chicago Medicine, we have access to a broad range of medical specialists, many of whom are considered "best in their field" of practice.
