The HKSH Healthcare Pain Management Centre employs an integrated, multidisciplinary approach in treating or helping patients cope with pain conditions. The programme aims at relieving suffering of patients as well as improving their psychological, social well-being and quality of life.
The centre provides consultation and pain education (e.g. self-coping techniques) to patients suffering from both acute and chronic pain. Problems such as common pain conditions of the body and joints, post-operative and difficult pain syndromes, neuropathic pain, terminal cancer pain and psychosomatic pain are treated with a multi-modal team approach. We also provide multi-dimensional assessment of the patient's personal pain experience.
The centre provides a wide range of options in modern pain therapy to ensure more effective pain management service and quicker recovery for patients. Helmed by highly experienced anaesthesiologists, we also provide Monitored Anaesthesia Care (MAC) to patients undergoing endoscopies or day surgeries at our HKSH Healthcare Endoscopy Centre and Day Surgery Centre.
