Pain Management Center: 201-894-3595

Since opening in 1994, the Pain Management and Wellness Center (PMWC) has improved the quality of life for many patients with acute and chronic disabling pain.

Pain is one of the most common reasons people consult a physician, yet it is often inadequately treated. The goals of the PMWC are to optimize pain control, enhance functional abilities and physical and psychological well-being, and improve the quality of the patient’s life.
