Center for Pain Management
The Center for Pain Management at the University of Pittsburgh, led by John Moossy, MD, focuses on alleviating chronic, spine-related pain arising from such conditions as failed back syndrome, arachnoiditis, vertebral compression fractures, reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), primary spinal tumors and spinal metastases. Our mission is to help alleviate the suffering these conditions cause, and by doing so, improve our patients’ quality of life.
