The Comprehensive Pain Center is an integral part of the UCLA Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine. Physician anesthesiologists with specialty expertise in the treatment of complex pain conditions come together to provide world-class care.
In our Santa Monica, Westwood, Santa Clarita, and Thousand Oaks locations – and soon in our new South Bay location in Torrance – we take pride in offering full evaluation and treatment services for painful conditions of all types, acute and chronic. All our physicians are board certified in anesthesiology and pain medicine.
Our emphasis is on treatment of the whole patient. We recognize that pain affects all aspects of patient and family life. Our goals are to work with each patient as an individual, to manage pain with multiple modes of treatment, and enable an early return to optimal activity.
Wherever you are on your care path, we are here to meet you. Whether you have a new injury or medical problem that is causing pain, or a chronic condition that has proved resistant to prior pain management efforts, our specialists will provide a thorough evaluation and develop a treatment plan for you. Our emphasis is on treatments and therapy that will reduce or eliminate the need for opioids, and improve overall health and wellbeing.
