UPMC Pain Medicine
The UPMC Pain Medicine Program is a multi disciplinary clinical, teaching, and research endeavor spread over six clinical locations: UPMC St. Margaret, Centre Commons in East Liberty, Oakland, Monroeville, St. Clair, and Cranberry. The Program evaluates and treats the entire range of pain, disability, and rehabilitation problems. It offers an interdisciplinary team approach that includes dedicated professionals from various specialties, including medicine, nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and psychology. The team develops and coordinates programs designed to reduce pain and suffering whenever possible; reduce disability to restore a more normal, meaningful, and satisfying life; reduce emotional distress caused by chronic pain; reduce dependency on drugs and on the healthcare system; and facilitate the patient’s return to gainful employment and usual household and leisure activities.
