Action against chronic pain using comprehensive services

LIVING with chronic pain can become more challenging as you get older.

Chronic pain can cause physical problems and emotional strain that can leave you feeling isolated, worried, angry, or just generally in a bad mood.

If you're feeling this way, we offer help.

St Vincent's Private Hospital Brisbane offers Australia's most comprehensive range of pain management services and specialties in one location.

Our goal is to help you manage, reduce and/or eliminate your pain.

You don't have to go it alone.

In 2013 we opened the Brisbane Centre for Pain Management. It provides consultation, assessment, treatment and management of pain.

Specialising in personalised care that is tailored to you, we focus on finding the right approach for you.

Treatment options could include reviewing or introducing a medication plan, undergoing an interventional treatment plan or participating in a rehabilitation or pain management program.

If you need a new or revised medication plan our specialists will work with you, offering you expert advice and guidance.

If you need an interventional treatment it will take place in a state-of-the-art dedicated pain theatre, equipped with the latest technologies.

If a program is the right approach for you, you will be supported by a team of dedicated, experienced and qualified health professionals.

Only when you are completely comfortable and have made a decision about a specific approach will we embark on that path.

As you progress adjustments may be needed and if so, your specialist will be with you to advise and guide you along the way.

Making an appointment with one of our pain specialists could be the first step on your journey to better manage your pain, minimise it or live pain free.

To find out more call our Pain Services Manager on (07) 3456 1770.
