The Pain Treatment Service at Boston Children's Hospital was established in 1986 as the first multidisciplinary program in the world for acute and chronic pain management for children. Our program remains the most clinically active program of its kind in the world.

We provide care for more than 2,000 patients each year, including children with:

Patient-controlled analgesia is administered to about half of these patients and epidural anesthesia to another quarter. The remainder receive a variety of treatments, depending on their individual factors.

The future of pediatrics will be forged by thinking differently, breaking paradigms and joining together in a shared vision of tackling the toughest challenges before us.”
