Pain Management

MGH Commitment to Pain Control

MGH has a long tradition of excellence and innovations in Pain Management. It was declared across the world, “we conquered pain” after the successful demonstration of ether during surgery. We continue to innovate and strive to continue this tradition as we face new challenges in the control of pain.
