Pain Center

The Cedars-Sinai Pain Center was established with the mission to improve the quality of the lives of individuals who suffer acute, chronic, and cancer pain, as well as those with facial disorders and diseases.

Pain is a condition that affects the daily life and financial security of hundreds of thousands of individuals and their families. It is a complex, challenging problem, requiring careful investigation of symptoms and specialized care. For persons suffering from acute chronic and cancer-related pain, the Cedars-Sinai Pain Center offers a full range of outpatient evaluation and treatment techniques, as well as inpatient consultation services.

The center's trained, board-certified healthcare specialists include doctors with specialties or fellowship training in anesthesiology, internal medicine and physical medicine. Team members include providers who treat back, head, neck and facial pain, to name a few, in addition to psychologist, physical therapists, and chiropractors. This multidisciplinary approach translates into individually designed treatment programs that best suit patients' needs.

We are a chronic and acute pain center made up of board-certified healthcare professionals with special training in the management of pain. Our team is made up of physicians from different fields working together for each patient. Our goal is to help ease your pain so that you can return to a more productive life.

Sleep apnea causes a person to momentarily stop breathing while sleeping. This means that the brain and body doesn't get the oxygen it needs. Without treatment, sleep apnea can lead to high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke or even heart failure if left untreated.
