Pain Management

The Pain Management Services in SKH is set up to serve patients with chronic and disabling pain disorders. Our team of doctors, acupuncturist, allied health and nurses, help patients to restore function and manage chronic pain by using a multi-pronged (bio-psycho-social) approach by addressing medical, physical and psychological aspects of pain. This one-stop centre is staffed by a team of internationally trained pain specialists, dedicated nurses, physiotherapists and psychologists. We also have an onsite acupuncturist to provide adjuvant management to pain conditions. We communicate closely with other specialties such as orthopaedic, general surgery, psychiatry and internal medicine to aim to provide quality care for our patients. We also accept outpatient referrals from polyclinics and GPs to co-manage patients with chronic pain conditions.

Our Mission

SKH Pain Management Centre is established with the mission to improve the quality of lives of patients with chronic cancer and non-cancer pain. The objective is to restore function and manage chronic pain by using a holistic approach to address the medical, physical and psychological aspects of pain.

Our Vision

We are committed to deliver comprehensive and effective treatment to our patients in a compassionate environment. In addition to clinical management, we will strive to stay ahead of advancements in pain education, research and clinical care. We will continue to educate physicians, nurses and patients about the prevention and management of pain through forums and workshops. We also collaborate with regional and international pain centres to maintain and upgrade standards of pain practice in order to provide the highest quality of care to our patients.
