Harborview Medical Center Pain Relief Services

The Acute Pain Service at Harborview Medical Center provides inpatient care for trauma and acute perioperative pain with an emphasis on functional recovery, goal-setting, and effective multimodal treatment. Each patient receives an individualized approach featuring evidence-based pharmacotherapy, regional anesthesia, and interdisciplinary care. We encourage complementary non-pharmacologic modalities and coordinate with appropriate specialists, including surgical teams, pediatricians, or addiction medicine specialists. Our patient care team consists of pain-trained anesthesiologists, advanced practice providers, rehabilitation psychologists, pain pharmacists, medical students, residents, and fellows.

Our vision

To be a leader in comprehensive and compassionate pain care excellence through a collaborative strategy with commitment to evidence-based practice, teaching, and public health outreach focused on trauma and other vulnerable populations.
