Pain Management Care

At Winship, cancer pain specialists from the Emory Pain Center provide interventional cancer pain management tailored to addressing your specific pain symptoms.

Depending on your cancer diagnosis, you may experience pain related to your cancer or your treatment. This pain may be mild, moderate or severe, and it may be located in an organ, or an entire organ system. Our customized treatment plan will allow you to be more active in your life, doing what personally brings you joy.

Pain is personal. The way you treat it should be personal, too.

Are you ready to get personal about pain relief? Research shows the more you know about pain and the more active and positive you are in treatment, the more effective the treatment will be.

Our cancer pain specialists tailor a custom management plan using a variety of tools to provide you with safe, long-term relief from your pain including acupuncture, cognitive behavioral therapy, pain medications with a focus on minimizing opioids, and various interventions.

Interventions may include:

  • Epidural steroid injection for pain radiating into the hand or foot from spine disease.
  • Facet joint blocks and radiofrequency ablation for headaches, neck pain or back pain.
  • Peripheral nerve blocks/ablation for pain in the ribs, knees, hips, shoulders, groin, buttock, feet, face or arms.
  • Sympathetic nerve blocks/ablation for visceral pain due to gastrointestinal, gynecologic or genitourinary cancer.
  • Nerve or spinal cord stimulation for neuropathic pain in feet, back, legs, arms, chest wall or face.
  • Vertebral augmentation for vertebral compression fractures or painful metastatic spine disease.
  • Intrathecal pump for intractable pain at multiple locations.
