It is a specialized field of medicine that consists of managing pain through non- pharmacological, pharmacological, as well as interventional procedures.

This branch of medicine works on the development of the diagnostic blocks for controlling pain. As a rule, the Department of Pain Management is against the use of NSAIDS – pain relieving drugs.

There are a number of tools and clinical protocols that are used by the Department of Pain Management to ensure that the best is delivered to the patients. Regenerative medicine is an integral part of Pain Management and plays an important part in initial osteoarthritis as well as tendinopathies, bursitis etc. Image guided blocks make the procedures for pain management more specific & scientific .RF ablation of nerves & plexus helps to make long lasting impact on management of pain and providing palliative care. The Department of Pain Management specializes in providing assistance to cancer patients, patients suffering from advanced osteoarthritis and patients specifically looking for medical management instead of surgeries.
