About IU Health Goshen Hospital Pain Management
The IU Health Goshen Hospital Pain Management Center, located within Goshen General Hospital, is available to assist you in caring for your patients who are experiencing chronic or cancer pain, providing you with an inter-disciplinary and comprehensive service.
Our process begins by reviewing the medical history and current pain problems of your patient. Following an examination, we present the patient with our diagnosis and recommendations for their plan of care. We may prescribe medication for a variety of symptoms; perform injections, coordinate physical therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture; refer for psychological support; dietitians/bariatrics; and implant permanent pain controlling devices or a combination of these treatments.
