Five “centers of excellence”, as determined by the American Pain Society in 2009.

If you are dealing with chronic pain that affects your everyday life in a significant way, it might behoove you to consult a team of experts who work together to take a multidisciplinary approach to your treatment.  Ask your primary care physician to point you in the direction of a facility that specializes in such an approach. There are numerous pain centers in the U.S. that take a multidisciplinary approach to pain treatment. These five were recognized in 2009 as “centers of excellence” by the American Pain Society.

  • Beth Israel Medical Center, Department of Pain Medicine and Palliative Care, New York City
  • M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, Pain Management Center, Houston (cancer pain)
  • Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, Center for Pain Management, Chicago
  • University of California, Los Angeles, Pediatric Pain Program, Mattel Children’s Hospital, David Geffen School of Medicine, Los Angeles (children’s pain)
  • University of Virginia Division of Pain Medicine/University of Virginia Health System, Charlottesvile, Virginia
