Pain Medicine Clinic

Compassion and Excellence for Patients Experiencing Pain

Pain management is vital to a patient's comfort, healing and well-being. Acute and chronic pain is associated with psychological stress, loss of strength and sleep disturbance. When untreated, pain may lead to physical impairment and emotional suffering.

If you or a loved one is experiencing pain, the Pain Medicine Clinic at the University of Chicago Medicine can help. Our team of anesthesiologists and pain specialists work collaboratively with other medical experts to assist patients in overcoming pain. We evaluate your symptoms and create an interventional treatment plan that focuses on pain relief, physical improvement and an enhanced quality of life.

Attention: On August 26, 2013, the Pain Medicine Clinic relocated to the third floor of the Duchossois Center for Advanced Medicine. The new space is located in the 3E corridor.
