Pain, while difficult to experience, can be controlled and managed. The Pain Management Center at Cooper offers the expertise and state-of-the-art capabilities to diagnose, evaluate and treat your particular type of pain.
We use a multidisciplinary approach, which means that a team of specialists with diverse expertise works with you and your primary care physician or specialist to determine the most appropriate treatment. This team includes anesthesiologists, neurologists, physiatrists, physical therapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, oncologists, palliative care, surgeons, and social workers.
The decision to control and manage your pain is a subject that you and your primary care physician or medical specialists need to discuss. Once the decision is made, you simply need a doctor's referral to the Pain Management Center.

- Increase your independence.
