The Pain Management Center at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center is nationally recognized for its expertise in the diagnosis, treatment, research and education of complex pediatric pain conditions. Our physician specialists are board-certified in pediatric pain management, and our center is home to one of the few pediatric pain basic science programs in the United States. In 2007, The Pain Management Center became the first pediatric pain program in the country to receive the American Pain Society’s Clinical Center of Excellence Award.
The Pain Management Center at Cincinnati Children’s treats patients with a variety of medical diagnoses, symptoms and disabilities resulting from chronic pain. Our goal is to help patients participate more fully in daily activities and to develop pain coping skills that help them to successfully manage pain and return to school, home and community life.
Typical problems evaluated by the Pain Management Center include:
Our specialists take a holistic approach, evaluating each patient’s situation from a medical, psychosocial and emotional perspective before developing a pain management strategy unique to the child’s needs. Many treatment regimens can take place close to home under the care of the child’s referring physician. For pain-related disability that requires intensive treatment, we collaborate with our colleagues in Rehabilitation Medicine to provide comprehensive inpatient pain management at the hospital.
Pain management strategies and therapies include:
Cincinnati Children’s is a leader in pediatric pain research. As a founding member of the Pediatric Research Network for Pain, we work with other leading institutions to develop clinical trials that advance the understanding of pain and pain management therapies.
Current research initiatives include:
In addition, the Pain Management Center is one of only two ACGME-accredited pediatric pain fellowship programs in the country and is a major training site for pediatric pain psychologists. Lectures for pediatric residents, observerships for practicing physicians, and multidisciplinary pain seminars are also conducted routinely.
