The Smilow Multidisciplinary Pain Program is Co-directed by Donna-Ann Thomas, MD, Assistant Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology, and Kevin Kim, MD, Professor of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging and of Medicine (Medical Oncology), and is for patients with complex and difficult to manage cancer-related pain. The multidisciplinary team includes experts from Pain Medicine, Interventional Radiology, Palliative Care, and Integrative Medicine specialties to provide integrative pain medicine for patients who suffer from pain as a result of their cancer treatments including radiation, chemotherapy, surgery, and pain caused by the disease itself.
The Program offers a variety of pain management options. Treatment may include oral pain medications or interventional procedures that include trigger point injections and nerve blocks. The pain medicine team also offers implanted pumps that deliver pain medications directly to the source of pain in the body.
When you express interest in a specific study, the information from your profile will be sent to the doctor conducting that study. If you're eligible to participate, you may be contacted by a nurse or study coordinator.
If you select a health category rather than a specific study, doctors who have active studies in that area may contact you to ask if you would like to participate.
In both cases, you will be contacted by the preferred method (email or phone) that you specified in your profile.
