Pain Management

Loyola Medicine’s Pain Management Center provides truly integrated clinical care for the management of acute and chronic pain. Our multidisciplinary team includes anesthesiologists, psychologists and pain specialists who work closely with orthopaedic surgeons, neurologists, oncologists, otolaryngologists, gastroenterologists and other specialists to care for patients with a wide array of painful conditions.

Loyola’s specialists focus on the comfort, healing and well-being of each patient—addressing not only the condition or disease, but also managing the life-altering symptoms that can affect daily activities. For many people, chronic pain affects sleep and creates stress. We at Loyola know that chronic pain can have a lasting impact on your life, causing physical impairment and taking an emotional toll.

For each patient, we provide a clinical and psychological evaluation, along with an individualized plan of care that may include:

  • Advanced interventional techniques
  • Diagnostic nerve blocks
  • Epidural catheter placement for home infusion therapy
  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Joint injections (hip, knee, shoulder, sacro-illiac)
  • Neurolytic blocks
  • Peripheral nerve blocks
  • Spinal cord stimulation
