Center for Pain Medicine

Support The Center for Pain Medicine

Due to the unforeseen impacts of COVID-19, we have had to change the way we deliver patient care. Many of our doctors and nurses have been deployed to the new COVID Intensive Care Units and other areas.

We have started virtual video visits for our patients during the crisis. More resources to support our work would be greatly appreciated, and we are currently accepting donations. If you would like to contribute to The Center for Pain Medicine fund, please follow the link below. Any contribution you can make is greatly appreciated as we continue to provide our patients with the best care possible.

Occasional pain is a natural part of life. Nearly everyone understands the experience of headaches and back pain, or pain after a medical procedure. For some people, however, pain is the predominant influence in their lives and dictates how they function every day.

At the Center for Pain Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), we are here to help. We offer comprehensive clinical services, innovative technology and advanced research programs provided by our dedicated practitioners and pain experts. As a nationally recognized center for pain medicine, our center is a model of innovation and excellence.

The Brigham and Women’s Hospital Center for Pain Therapy and Research encompasses two programs: Clinical care and education, which is provided through the Center for Pain Medicine, and basic science and clinical research, which is conducted through the Pain Research Center.
