Chronic pain often persists in spite of our best treatments. However, if you have chronic pain that is interfering with your daily life, our pain management specialists can help you manage that pain to regain maximum function. The Clinic for Comprehensive Pain Management is a combined initiative between anesthesiology and physical medicine and rehabilitation that includes pain physicians, psychologists, pharmacists, physical therapists and nurse practitioners who have expertise in pain management.
We provide the latest treatment advances to help reduce or alleviate your pain in the safest manner possible with a focus on non-opioid treatments. This may include medications, interventional procedures and/or pain-control devices to enable you to fully engage in atraumatic exercise and neurobehavioral counseling that serve as the foundation of successful chronic pain management.
We work closely with other specialists within the University of Minnesota Health system to coordinate your care and to develop the best and safest possible plan for managing your pain. If you need surgery, or you are in the hospital for other reasons, we also work with your doctor to help control your pain during your hospitalization.
