Our UHN programs and services are among the most advanced in the world. We have grouped our physicians, staff, services and resources into 10 medical programs to meet the needs of our patients and help us make the most of our resources.
University Health Network is a health care and medical research organization in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The scope of research and complexity of cases at UHN has made us a national and international source for discovery, education and patient care.
Our 10 medical programs are spread across eight hospital sites – Princess Margaret, Toronto General, Toronto Rehab’s five sites, Toronto Western – as well as our education programs through the Michener Institute of Education at UHN. Learn more about the services, programs and amenities offered at each location.

The Division of Chronic Pain Management UHN-MSH provides patient care, education and research in the area of chronic pain and cancer pain. We offer both inpatient and outpatient chronic pain services, across multiple programs, at four hospitals: Toronto Western Hospital, Toronto General Hospital, Princess Margaret Hospital, and Mount Sinai Hospital. Each of these programs focuses on a unique patient population and we strive to provide multidisciplinary evaluation and comprehensive pain management for every patient.
Our goal is to prevent and manage chronic pain syndromes, while following principles of evidence-based medicine, to ensure that our patients receive the best possible care.
We help patients with various pain disorders, often in multiple parts of the body including:
We have a special interest and focus in diagnosing and treating chronic pain with image-guided interventional techniques (using ultrasound and fluoroscopy).
We understand the importance of patient education and motivation in managing challenging chronic pain syndromes.
Empathy and compassion are the basic beliefs that guide our patient care. We ensure that our patients have adequate time to discuss their pain problems and management options with our staff.
Regularly scheduled team conferences are held to review each patient's treatment plan and progress.
Patients are seen via referral from a health care professional. We offer the following programs for management of chronic pain:
Our research focuses on novel therapies for pain management. We are engaged in several projects for evaluating recent advances in pharmacological and interventional pain management.
We are committed to educating patients and health care professionals (including medical students, nurses, residents, clinical fellows, and staff) about chronic pain.
We conduct interventional pain management workshops involving ultrasound and fluoroscopy guidance for procedures for pain physicians at local, national, and interventional levels.
Our staff is invited to present their research, and educate health care professionals at international pain meetings.
