Center for Pain Management

Center for Pain Management physicians from Mass General Hospital

Multidisciplinary approach

The Center for Pain Management at Salem Hospital is committed to improving the quality of life for individuals who suffer from chronic pain, through interventional pain procedures and clinical collaborations. We create individual multimodal and multidiscipinary treatment plans for our patients to reduce your pain and improve your functionality.

Our collaborative approach includes mental health, substance use, physical medicine and rehabilitation, wellness alternative therapies and orthopedic and spine surgery. Our pain specialists use leading-edge technology to help patients find the relief they need. We are staffed by Massachusetts General Hospital  and North Shore Physicians Group  double board certified pain medicine and anesthesiology physicians.

Physician referrals only

We collaborate with referring clinicians to provide care and long-term management of pain for North Shore patients. Please ask your provider if the Center for Pain Management is right for you.
