Cancer Pain

About one-third of patients being treated for cancer have pain, and each patient’s pain is unique. Therefore, each patient’s pain management plan must be carefully designed.

Cancer Pain

The Pain Management Specialists offer spinal administration of narcotics and local anesthetics for those patients where oral or intravenous narcotics and other pain medications are unsuccessful in controlling cancer pain.

The Technology

At the Pain Management Specialists we use epidural and intra-spinal catheters and internal or external infusion pumps to treat cancer pain. This technology provides a safe, reliable means of long-term drugs administration.   During a minor surgical procedure, a catheter is placed in the epidural or intra-spinal space which is then connected to an internal or external infusion pump  which delivers pain medication.


This technique of delivering pain medication has several advantages. The use of local anesthetics in combination with narcotics delivered into the epidural or intra-spinal space generally results in better pain control and fewer side-effects than intravenous or oral narcotics. 

Please contact us to find out more about how we can help you manage your cancer pain.
