Interventional Pain Management at UPMC Northwest

The interventional pain management clinic at UPMC Northwest combines the disciplines of procedural pain management, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and orthopaedic spine surgery to provide a comprehensive approach to treating chronic pain.

The goal of the interventional pain clinic is to treat the whole patient by recognizing that pain is not only physical; it affects mental and emotional health as well. Our specialists work with each patient to identify the cause and source of their pain and to develop an individual treatment plan.
