Pain Management Services

Our experts offer pain management services through the Vanderbilt Pain Management Center, Interventional Pain Clinic and Acute Pain Center.

The Vanderbilt Pain Management Center

Chronic pain affects about 116 million people in the U.S., more than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. At the Vanderbilt Pain Management Center, our experts will work with you to customize a treatment for your chronic pain. Your team may include specialists from anesthesiology, psychology or psychiatry, neurology or neurosurgery, orthopedics or rehabilitation.

As a patient at Vanderbilt, you will have access to a network of world-class facilities, including the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, Vanderbilt Neurology Clinic, Comprehensive Spine Center, Vanderbilt Interventional Pain Center or the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center. We do everything possible to provide for your long-term better health.

The Pain Management Center is housed at Vanderbilt Health at One Hundred Oaks. To contact the center, call (615) 875-PAIN.

Vanderbilt Interventional Pain Clinic

At the Vanderbilt Interventional Pain Clinic, we help people who have complex pain problems such as chronic back and neck pain, cancer-related pain and neuropathic pain from diabetes. We partner with specialists in neurosurgery, orthopedics, psychiatry and physical therapy to offer a complete range of pain management care.

We offer a wide range of interventional pain management procedures. Click here for a current list of procedures/services (PDF).

Vanderbilt Acute Pain Center

The Adult Acute Pain Service at Vanderbilt offers relief for patients suffering from acute pain because of an injury or other causes. We offer procedures such as:

  • Epidural catheters
  • Peripheral nerve blocks
  • Peripheral nerve catheters
  • Pain management for complex shoulder and arm surgery, knee arthroplasties, extensive ankle restorations and repeated burn debridements

Rather than using drugs, we practice targeted pain control in the area of injury. This offers better pain control, improves patient satisfaction and can reduce time in the hospital. Some patients can be treated in an outpatient setting, where they can be treated and then go home with a small, disposable pain pump.
