Pain Management

Getting you back to your life.

Chronic and acute pain affects every thread in the fabric of life. Family, friends, careers and pastimes can all unravel when pain is out of control. Our team of pain specialists is here to restore order to hurting individuals, bringing comfort to them and their families.

Our services begin with simple conversation. Listening to you and your family and communicating with your family physician are crucial elements in our effort to reduce or eliminate your pain. At the Pain Medicine Center at Indiana University Health University Hospital, we believe that approaching pain logically and methodically will bring about the best long-term result.

Years of research and evidence-based medicine have helped us become one of the elite pain clinics in the Midwest. Surgeries, medications, injections and advanced therapies are tools we use effectively, as needed. No matter what method of treatment we pursue, our commitment to caring for the whole person never changes.

The specialists in the Pain Medicine Center at IU Health University Hospital are dedicated to managing pain and spasticity, providing relief and restoring quality of life. Our multidisciplinary team works together to treat both chronic and acute pain with cancer pain receiving the highest priority. Improving quality of life is always our goal, and we take great care to individually develop a plan to safely and effectively manage the pain. Pain can be a symptom or result of countless medical conditions.

Our team of pain specialists represents a variety of medical specialties, including:

  • Physiatry (physician specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation)
  • Neurology
  • Nursing
  • Collaboration with allied therapy (physical and occupational therapy)

Each person we care for is also a member of his or her own care team. Decisions are made with input and approval from you, the patient. Your regular physician is also part of the team. Your pain medicine doctor will supervise and follow every aspect of your care while at IU Health University Hospital.
