Message from the Chairman

Contrearas,_Jose,_MDI would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to web portal of the Institute of Pain & Palliative Medicine here at Hackensack University Medical Center. It is my privilege to introduce you to the Institute and to its groundbreaking, team-centric approach to pain management and patient care.
Patients treated by our Institute include those suffering from debilitating chronic pain that is not responsive to conservative treatment. This includes patients with cancer pain, lower back pain, shingles pain, arthritis, postoperative pain, diabetes, CRPS, and multiple sclerosis. Controlling and monitoring pain as well as managing the psychological, social, and spiritual problems associated with it are vital to our pain management philosophy.
The primary goal of the Institute of Pain and Palliative Medicine is to achieve the best possible quality-of-life for our patients and their families. The department offers a comprehensive, multidisciplinary pain management team. Compassionate, personalized care is focused on the relief of a full range of physical and psychological pain symptoms to help patients enjoy full, productive, and, most importantly, comfortable lives.
Hackensack University Medical Center’s reputation as one of New Jersey’s and the nation’s healthcare leaders is driven by a commitment to quality. The Institute is privileged to be a part of Hackensack University Medical Center and share this commitment to providing the highest quality of patient care available.
Jose A. Contreras
M.D. Chairman, Department of Pain and Palliative Care
