If you are among the millions who are living with chronic pain, a full and active life may seem like an impossible dream. But don't give up. If the pain treatment you have tried doesn't provide relief, we may help!
The Department of Pain Management at MGM New Bombay Hospital Vashi hospital provides Pain Management Services for Sub-Acute and Chronic Pain Patients. By definition, Sub Acute pain is any pain lasting between 4 and 12 weeks of duration. Chronic pain is defined as any kind of pain persisting for more than 12 weeks duration. We use a multidisciplinary approach to help you take an active role in managing your pain and to help you in getting back to a normal, productive life. We offer treatments focusing on total end result in terms of pre-defined objectives, not just the pain. We believe in the aphorism “Pain is inevitable, but your suffering is optional.” What kind of problems we deal in?
