Anesthesiology is a medical field concerned with the planning and administration of anesthetic agents for patients undergoing surgical or therapeutic procedures.
Pain Management focuses on helping patients deal with chronic pain or pain that persists months after the healing process has ended – generally three to six months or more. Trinity Health’s program employs a team of healthcare providers who work with patients to understand and treat their pain using a variety of strategies and interventions.
