Pain Management and Integrative Medicine
Mount Sinai's Pain Management and Integrative Medicine physicians utilize both traditional and complementary therapies to decrease pain—caused by injury, cancer, or other chronic or acute ailments—and improve overall function. Our specialists provide diagnosis and treatment with a focus on minimally invasive procedures (as opposed to potentially harmful narcotic medications) to relieve discomfort so that patients can participate in physical therapies. By increasing functionality we help patients to re-engage in activities important to them, thereby improving the very quality of their lives.
