Anesthesiology

About Anesthesiology

Anesthesiology is the medical specialty that ensures a patient is comfortable and as pain free as possible during surgery and procedures. At UMMC, our board-certified anesthesiologists are physicians trained to administer and manage medication to relieve physical pain and sensation during medical procedures, surgery, or as a result of a medical condition. Along with their staff, they also manage and treat functions such as breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure, and immediately diagnose and treat any medical problems that might arise during the surgery or recovery period.

About Pain Management

The UMMC Pain Management Center is staffed by board-certified physicians and a team of experienced support staff who work with referring providers to offer optimal pain control for each patient. Outpatient procedures are performed at the Jackson Medical Mall clinic with state-of-the-art equipment and innovative technology. Patients also are seen at the University Physicians Pavilion and community outreach clinics.

With new and improved pain medications and management approaches, there is no reason for anyone to tolerate severe pain. By effectively treating pain, you will heal faster, have fewer complications following surgery, and be able to go home and resume normal activities sooner.

Why Pain Management at UMMC is different.

University of Mississippi Medical Center pain physicians, psychologists, experienced clinical nurses, and pain clinic staff provide individualized plans to help patients manage acute or chronic pain.

This practice, including the UMMC Pain Management Center, has the largest number of board-certified pain physicians in Mississippi. The care team uses a multidisciplinary approach to assess and treat painful conditions, including neuropathic, sympathetic and visceral pain syndromes, and cancer pain.
