Pain can have many causes. Pain management is a multi-disciplinary specialty.
Physician specialists who address treatment of pain include anesthesiologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists, and rheumatologists.
Pain Medicine is the medical discipline concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of the entire range of painful disorders. An Anesthesiologist who specializes in Pain Medicine provides a high level of care, either as a primary physician or consultant, for patients experiencing problems with acute, chronic and/or cancer pain in both hospital and ambulatory settings. Due to the vast scope of the field, Pain Medicine is a multidisciplinary subspecialty and patient care needs may be coordinated with other specialists.
