Edgar L. Ross, MD, Director, Pain Management Center at BWH, discusses how chronic pain differs from acute pain and our team-based approach (including experts in psychiatry, psychology, neurology, physiatry, and anesthesiology) that requires the patient to be an active participant in the treatment plan. Treatment plans address the physical and psychological components of chronic pain and rehabilitation.
Dr. Ross also describes research being conducted at BWH including clinical trials evaluating new pain medications, a mobile app designed to help patients manage chronic pain outside of the doctor's office and a risk assessment tool that helps predict if patients should avoid the use of opiate medications.

It's been extremely successful in treating neuropathic pain with many fewer side effects than seen with the older anticonvulsants.Ross also says that the triptans , the new class of migraine medications including sumatriptan ( Imitrex ) , zolmitriptan ( Zomig ) , rizatriptan ( Maxalt ) , and naratriptan ( Amerge ) , have been a boon to many chronic migraine sufferers.
