Acute Pain Service
The Acute Pain Service at Mass General aims to provide excellence in acute and postoperative pain relief, to educate residents in the management of acute pain, and to further clinical research in the fields of pain management and regional anesthesia.
We consult on the management of patients with postoperative, post-traumatic, or any acute pain condition requiring:
- specialized interventions such as epidural analgesia;
- continuous peripheral nerve blockade;
- complex pharmacological management.
We also offer a full range of interventional procedures, such as blood patches, difficult lumbar punctures, fluoroscopy-guided epidural placement and ultrasound-guided regional blocks.
The service is staffed for 24-hour coverage seven days a week.
The service is staffed by anesthesiologists who specialize in acute perioperative pain management.
