Our Chronic Pain Service team is dedicated to restore a patients’ quality of life through finding the source of the pain and to improve the patients’ ability to move again. We attempt to accomplish this by taking an integrated approach to pain management, providing consultation and treatment to individuals with both acute and chronic pain. Our skilled physicians evaluate and work with each patient to develop an individualized treatment plan. In addition to providing excellent patient care, we are a part of a countywide coalition of health and community leaders that is working together in combating a national epidemic of prescription overdose deaths and evidence-based medicine. We pride ourselves in bringing cutting-edge technology and research to our pain treatment plans.

We help future leaders in pain medicine advance through developing knowledge and skills in managing patients in pain while practicing excellent patient care. Our academic setting has a tradition of providing trainees with the broadest experience in pain medicine. Graduates have become national leaders in the field of pain medicine at top academic institutions.

Our simulating research environment includes studies that are funded with National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants as well as other national grants with prominent pain societies. We also serve as Principal Investigators for many industry-related clinical trials for pain management. Our clinical and basic research scientists and faculty are dedicated to discovering cutting edge pain treatment options.

At our outpatient services, the UC Irvine Health Center for Pain & Wellness team includes a group of physicians trained to evaluate and treat all forms of pain. We have a state-of-the-art facility that has the latest testing and diagnostic equipment available in Orange County to conduct thorough evaluations in all cases. Our multi-disciplinary team includes pain fellowship trained anesthesiologists, pediatric pain specialists, physical medicine physicians, pediatric pain psychologists, nurses, medical assistants, as well as administrative support.

In addition to our outpatient services, our team provides comprehensive inpatient consultative services at UC Irvine Medical Center. This allows our team to provide support and guidance to both patients and physicians in the hospital setting and works closely with admitting physicians and surgeons to optimize pain management of their patients during admission to the hospital.
