Pain Medicine Department at UPMC Kildare Hospital

Pain medicine is an important component of the services UPMC Kildare Hospital provides to its patients. This specialty acts as a vital complementary service to other departments, such as orthopaedics and rheumatology.

Our pain medicine clinics provide patients with the appropriate investigation, diagnosis, and interventional treatment from highly experienced professionals with extensive backgrounds in pain medicine. The clinic provides treatment for patients suffering from acute and chronic pain, such as back and neck pain, neuropathic pain, and persistent post-surgical pain.

While most pain resolves quickly with standard therapies and the passage of time, sometimes painful conditions persist to become a chronic pain condition. There is rarely one single remedy to treat painful conditions. UPMC Kildare Hospital, therefore, adopts a multidisciplinary approach in dealing with the treatment of complex pain problems.
