We know kids and teens are not just small adults—they have special needs. Every child has the right to have their pain treated by a team that treats children every day.
The Center for Pain Relief at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta offers pediatric pain therapy for both inpatient and outpatient care. While children are in our hospitals, our team provides expertise for difficult pain management issues after surgery. In the outpatient setting, we get to know your family in our pain clinic, which meets one day a week at both our Scottish Rite and Egleston hospital campuses.
Our team is led by pediatric anesthesiologists (doctors who help your child control pain with medicine). We also have a psychologist who can help your child emotionally. The team is trained to help lower your child's anxiety, which we hope will lower his pain.
