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.




We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
