Center for Pain Medicine

The Erasmus MC is one of the largest tertiary care and academic hospital in the Netherlands. Our hospital can proudly offer the services of highly specialized medical professionals for the treatment of complex and rare diseases.

Within the Center for Pain Medicine, physicians of the specialties anesthesiology, neurology, internal oncology (palliative care), rehabilitation medicine, physiotherapy and medical psychology work together.

Chronic or acute pain can be a debilitating condition which prevents people from fulfilling their goals and participating in desired activities. Pain can significantly reduce quality of life. Underlying causes of pain can be difficult to diagnose and therefore hard to treat. The Center for Pain Medicine was established to facilitate the thorough examination of (chronic) pain patients in order to best find a solution for their complaints.
