Pain Management Centre
The Pain Management Centre, which is part of the Anaesthesiology and Resuscitation Department, takes care of patients who are suffering from various forms of this symptom.
Pain is the main cause of consultations with general practitioners (60% of cases).
There are several origins and types of pain:
The perception of pain is very individual and is influenced by a variety of factors, such as gender, age, ethnic origin, and education.
Pain thus affects a large number of people, and modern care strategies for them require a multidisciplinary approach involving, among others, analgesia specialists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, radiologists...
All of these complementary skills are represented in Valais Hospital.
