Pain Management

Expect safe, expert pain control

At Prisma Health, our goal is for every patient to experience minimal pain during their hospital stay. Our proactive approach to pain management is designed to prevent pain before it arises through a variety of advanced, proven methods, even in complex cases or when pre-existing conditions are present.

Find a Pain Specialist


Our board-certified and board-eligible anesthesiologists are experts in providing general, regional and monitored anesthesia as well as intravenous sedation. They will choose your type and level of anesthesia based on what will keep you safest and most comfortable during your procedure.

Obstetric anesthesiology

On your special day, your focus should be on the joy of bringing a new life into the world – not on the pain it can cause. Prisma Health’s Division of Obstetric Anesthesiology supports thousands of births each year with multidisciplinary techniques and around-the-clock care.

Chronic pain management

When you allow chronic pain to linger, it can have more of an impact on you than you realize – not just physically, but mentally. It’s all the more reason to see our pain management specialists as soon as possible, so we can help alleviate your suffering and get you back to living the healthy and active life you were meant to live.

Use of opioids

Prisma Health understands the toll that opioid addiction has taken on patients and their families across the country. We’re doing our part to minimize addiction by using a variety of non-opioid pain relief techniques and limiting opioid use to only the most necessary cases — where their intake can be monitored by a healthcare professionals.
