If you had a heart problem, you’d see a cardiologist. If you’re in pain, you should see a specialty trained pain management physician.
Whether your pain stems from nagging back pain, an acute sports injury, a recent operation, osteoarthritis or complex regional pain syndrome, our specialty-trained pain management physicians are driven to understand and eliminate it.
In our patient-centric care model, you will be evaluated and treated by physicians with the interest, clinical expertise, cutting-edge training and skill to relieve your pain and restore your life.
The right treatment starts with the right team and the right diagnosis.
HSS understands that pain is a factor in many of the conditions we treat and in the course of some care provided to help our patients get back to what they need and love to do. Prudent and careful management of pain is among the most important responsibilities of any healthcare provider.
In the interest of patient care excellence, we have trained our physicians and staff in best practices relating to the prescription of pain medicines, including narcotics. When pain management through use of controlled substances is clinically indicated, practitioners at HSS seek to prescribe the lowest doses, for the shortest duration possible. HSS takes great efforts to minimize the use of controlled substances and avert drug dependence, and we expect our patients to work with us toward that goal.
Our philosophy is simple: Pain should be managed only as medically necessary, and in such cases conservatively and under the close monitoring of specialists with state-of-the-art knowledge.
Whether your pain is persistent or acute, at HSS, with the world’s best medical team on your side, you will receive honest, expert, personalized care. We invite you to read our patients’ stories to learn more about the quality of our care, our multi-faceted approach, and our successful outcomes.
