Anesthesia Pain Service

The Anesthesia Pain Service (APS) provides pain consultation services at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and the Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. Care is provided by a team of faculty physicians, pain medicine fellows, anesthesiology residents and nurse practitioners.  

The APS provides advanced pain care to hospitalized patients.  This care includes the use of epidural patient-controlled analgesia, intravenous patient-controlled analgesia, and ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia techniques.  In addition, the APS provides interventional pain management when necessary to inpatients with cancer-related pain that need these techniques.

Finally, the APS provide pain consultation to inpatients who are experiencing poorly controlled chronic pain.  The APS, in coordination with the admitting physician, assists in the evaluation of the pain and the development of a treatment plan.  Often, the plan includes continued therapy as an outpatient at the Penn Pain Medicine Center.
