SLUCare's Acute Pain Management team aggressively prevents pain during your medical treatments using a variety of techniques, including peripheral nerve blocks, continuous peripheral catheters, patient controlled IV analgesia (PCA) and epidural catheters.

With these techniques, our patients have greater pain relief, allowing them to recover and regain normal function more quickly. Our team has a dedicated member on staff at SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital all times to assess and address pain issues, and to create individualized treatment plans tailored to our patients' needs.
