Pain Medicine Services at Emory University Hospital Midtown

Pain can be caused by a disease, an accident or a recent surgery.  It manifests in many ways, affecting each individual who suffers from it uniquely.  But if pain persists over time, long past a reasonable healing process, you may have a chronic pain condition that warrants special treatment.

Today, researchers and physicians are constantly discovering new ways to treat chronic pain while improving the effectiveness of past treatment methods.  The pain medicine specialists of Emory Crawford Long Hospital are among the leaders in the their field, practicing the latest innovations and state-of-the-art therapies for pain management.

Our pain medicine specialists work closely with primary care physicians to develop a thorough understanding of each patient's medical history.  And, we work with each patient to comprehend and appreciate the nature, duration and type of pain he or she is experiencing in great detail.  These factors, along with a complete physical exam and appropriate testing, help us develop a precise, pain management plan for each patient.  Our physicians treat a range of pain conditions, including:

  • Spinal pain
  • Low back pain
  • Joint pain
  • Migraines
  • Complex regional pain syndrome (pain of the upper and lower extremities)
  • Cancer pain
  • Nerve conditions such as sciatica and trigeminal neuralgia

We use a range of treatment methods for pain management, dependent on the nature of the patient's condition, his/her age and their overall health.  Treatment methods can include medications, injection therapies and surgery as well as alternative care such as massage.
