Managing pain is the name of the game
Few things are more heartbreaking than seeing your child in pain. That’s why, at Children’s Minnesota, we have a program, and a philosophy, that’s dedicated to keeping kids as pain-free as possible, whether during a hospital stay, an emergency room visit or recurrent pain like headaches. The interdisciplinary pain program is one of the largest of its kind in the U.S., combining drug and integrative (non-drug therapies), to ease pain in babies, children and teens.
We’re a Center of Excellence in Pediatric Pain Management, a designation few pain management programs have earned. In 2013, the American Pain Society recognized our state-of-the-art, patient-centered pain management program for demonstrating a multidisciplinary approach that not only treats children’s pain, but the whole patient, in order to improve function and overall quality of life.
We see patients in both of our hospitals and in our Kiran Stordalen and Horst Rechelbacher Pediatric Pain, Palliative and Integrative Medicine Clinic.
