Introduction to Pain and Palliative Care
What We Do
The Institute of Pain and Palliative Medicine, one of New Jersey’s largest providers of dedicated comprehensive diagnostic and therapeutic pain management services, serves patients who are suffering from chronic pain and difficult symptoms associated with serious illness.
The pain and palliative medicine services at Hackensack University Medical Center is housed within an Institute run by a pain management team of experts. This institute structure and setup brings together the full range of clinicians needed to comprehensively address all aspects of a patient’s condition.
Our services are both hospital (also referred to as “inpatient”) based and outpatient clinic based -- helping bridge the continuity of care gap. The Institute of Pain and Palliative Medicine is privileged to be a part of Hackensack University Medical Center, a nationally recognized source for reliable, effective patient care and one of the nation’s premier university-based teaching hospitals.
