Pain Medicine


Pain hurts. Pain brings not only bodily discomfort, but can cause stress, affect us at home and work, and affect how we interact with family and with friends. Chronic or long-term pain conditions change lives. At Weill Cornell Medicine Pain Management, we understand the complexities of pain. If you are dealing with a long-term pain condition, we are here to help.

  • Reputation. We bring the experience, knowledge and reputation of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital - ranked the #1 hospital in New York and #6 on the National Honor Roll by U.S. News & World Report in their 2016-17 Best Hospitals Rankings - to all our patient care.
  • State-of-the-Art Treatments. Our board-certified physicians and fully trained staff utilize cutting-edge procedures and techniques to treat pain.
  • An Individualized Approach. Every pain condition is as different as every patient. Since we’re part of a larger Weill Cornell team, we can refer you to specialists across departments and disciplines.
  • Security. Our physicians are trained to go above and beyond industry standards in patient quality and safety.
  • Relief. We provide a comprehensive, multidisciplinary team approach to your care. Treating you as an individual, our goal is to alleviate your pain and help you move forward - changing your life for the better.
