Jonathan H. Waters, MD

Interim Director

The Acute Interventional Perioperative Pain Service (AIPPS) offers 24-hour perioperative pain management for orthopaedic, thoracic, and urologic patients requiring peripheral and paravertabral nerve blocks. The mission of AIPPS is to coordinate and standardize perioperative pain management of patients undergoing surgery while under the care of AIPPS at UPMC. Each year, AIPPS hosts a national Pain Symposium, which is an academically-focused meeting designed to provide health care professionals with the latest trends, techniques, therapies, and interventional procedures in pain research and pain management.
