Pain is the body’s way of warning you that something is wrong. But that doesn’t mean you should be in pain for weeks or months, especially if you are in treatment (e.g., for cancer) or have completed it (e.g., after surgery). Constant pain can ruin your quality of life and can make it difficult to participate in the physical therapy that could help with the condition or symptoms.
Mount Sinai's Pain Management doctors believe that we need to address your pain and also treat the underlying cause. We start with a complete examination and diagnosis to identify your condition and the best way to treat it. We tailor your treatment plan to your individual medical and personal needs. If you are admitted to one of the Mount Sinai hospitals, we follow you and provide pain management care throughout whatever other treatments you may be receiving. We want to help you live your best possible life.
