Pain can be reduced or managed through surgery, procedures, or other treatment to help you achieve a reasonable quality of life and ability to function.
FHN offers patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) for adults. Patient-controlled analgesia is a way to get pain medicine without the need for repeated injections. A PCA is a machine set up by caregivers. The pump lets the patient have some control over pain medicine delivery. It can help decrease acute (short-term) pain, such as after surgery or an accident. Chronic (long-term) pain, such as cancer pain, may also be treated with a PCA.

Many of our specialty care offices require a referral from primary care for your initial visit, so if you're already an FHN patient, you may need to contact your primary care provider for more information. If you're new to FHN, or don't have a primary care provider, call the number above and you'll have a primary care appointment before you hang up the phone!* Thank you for choosing FHN!
