Cancer and Pain Management 

At Atrium Medical Center, comprehensive pain management consultations are available for patients with cancer and a variety of other conditions. Cancer patients have access to the latest pain management techniques and pain specialists.

Since each patient has different perceptions of pain and tolerances for pain, our pain management team creates an individual treatment plan for each patient based on a holistic approach. The patient’s oncologist or family physician may refer the patient to our pain management professionals for evaluation.

Pain Management Plans

A consultation with the pain management physician helps determine which treatments are likely to be most effective depending on the type of pain. Once the doctor has established a pain management plan, the doctor confers with the patient’s oncologist for the ongoing management of pain.

Pain Management Therapies

Pain from cancer can exist in many different locations in the body, and a variety of sources can cause the pain. The Atrium Medical Center Pain Management team evaluates the source of the pain before deciding the optimum treatment plan. Sometimes, physicians can remove or reduce the source of the pain through surgery, radiation and/or chemotherapy.

When the source of the pain has been treated, any pain that remains may require medication in combination with non-medicinal therapies. Combinations of medications are usually most effective, and reduce the amount of opiate needed for pain control. Sometimes, blocking the nerves involved in the pain with local anesthetic can reduce the overall medication requirement.
