Pain Clinic

The Pain Clinic at Asian Institute of Medical Sciences is the first pain clinic in India to serve patients with chronic, disabling pain disorders. The Pain Clinic addresses physical and psychological dimensions of pain by using a multi-pronged approach, which helps the patients to manage chronic pain and restore function.

The most advanced treatment options currently available are being offered in a supportive, compassionate environment at Asian Institute of Medical Sciences, Faridabad by the pooled expertise of a multidisciplinary team of pain specialists.

Our goals are to help you decrease the suffering caused by pain and return to your utmost level of functioning and independence, thereby improving the quality of life.

The treatment plan developed by the Pain Clinic will be specifically tailored to the patient’s health status, severity and intensity of pain, individual’s requirements and objectives. The treatment plan may be either involving single approach or multi-modal approach i.e. combination of various therapies: medical therapies (including both medications and special procedures); rehabilitation therapies and psychological therapies.
