Partnering with You and Your Physician

Our goal at the Penn Pain Medicine Center is to help lower your pain as much as possible while working in partnership with your primary care physician and other members of your health care team.

By consulting with your other doctors, we believe we can offer you the best possible treatment – a treatment that takes into consideration not only your pain, but also any other physical, emotional, and/or psychological difficulties you may be experiencing.

Our objective is for you to achieve the maximum pain relief possible so that you can have the best possible physical and mental function.
