Why Choose Mount Nittany Health Pain Management?

Our compassionate team is here for you when you’re dealing with pain that just won’t quit, whether it’s from an accident, injury, or another condition that has you seeking relief beyond the usual healing process. Sometimes treatments like physical therapy, steroids, or pain medications may not provide the comfort you need. Pain Management is an off-campus outpatient department run by Mount Nittany Medical Center dedicated to helping you find relief.

Our Approach

Our pain management specialists work with you to determine what treatment is best for you. Most procedures are performed on an outpatient basis to return patients to normal activities soon after treatment.

Talk with your physician about a referral. Most of our patients qualify for insurance coverage. Consult your insurance provider to confirm.
