Pain is a complex physiological and emotional experience, which can dramatically affect an individual's life. Musculoskeletal pain, especially related to spinal disorders, can be particularly limiting and difficult for patients to cope with.

Directed by an anesthesiologist with subspecialty training in pain medicine, the Division of Musculoskeletal and Interventional Pain Management offers comprehensive evaluation and treatment to patients with acute and chronic pain syndromes, including pain from orthopedic and rheumatologic conditions. The division is skilled in treating pain related to conditions that include:
