Welcome to Pain Management Services
Pain is physically, emotionally and mentally unpleasant. It can disrupt every part of a person’s life including work and social activities. Sometimes the experience of pain can make a person feel alone and distanced from family and friends.
No one should have to suffer from pain. There are ways to control pain or eliminate it.
The Pain Management Service at Newton-Wellesley Hospital offers a focused approach of care for people with acute, chronic or cancer-related pain. Our team of specialists works together to develop treatment plans tailored to each individual patient’s needs.
Our primary goal is to reduce or eliminate pain and enable our patients to achieve the highest level of function and independence that is possible.

The Pain Management Service at Newton-Wellesley Hospital offers individualized care for people with acute, chronic or cancer-related pain. Our team provides a comprehensive approach to diagnosing, treating and relieving chronic pain through both medical and alternative behavioral methods.
The team works together to develop treatment plans tailored to each individual patient’s needs with the primary goal of reducing or eliminating pain and enabling patients to achieve the highest possible level of function and independence.
Patients must be referred to the Pain Management Service by their physician to come in for an initial consultation. This appointment allows the team to determine the most appropriate treatment for each patient’s pain management. A treatment plan is developed and reviewed with the patient and their family.
We offer a variety of resources for patients in one convenient location. Patient care is provided by board certified anesthesiologists, interventional physiatrists (physical medicine), nurse practitioners, registered nurses and radiologic technologists with special training in pain management. Patients are referred for pain management services from various areas of the Hospital such as orthopaedics, neurosurgery, psychiatry, physiatry, neurology, behavioral medicine, health psychology, rheumatology, internal medicine and occupational and physical therapy.
