UW Health pain management specialists in Madison, Wisconsin, use medications as one tool to help reduce our patients' pain and improve their function.
  • We work to provide the best possible improvement using the most appropriate medications. Your provider may use a single medication or a combination of medications.
  • We often have to check test results, talk to your other providers and learn more about your situation before new medications are started, so not everyone will receive medication during their first visit.
  • Please also be aware that we cannot permanently prescribe pain medications. Once we find an effective regimen, we help you to transfer care back to your primary care physician or other referring provider.
