The Ponos Pain Clinic Project consists of a group of highly skilled medical doctors who specialize in Anesthesiology and Intensive Care, with further expertise in Pain Medicine and Interventional Pain Medicine. All team doctors have served full-time practice in public hospital pain services and are authorized by the respective national health services. The Ponos Clinic is a health care facility that focuses on the diagnosis and management of chronic pain, intended as pain lasting for more than three months. Acute pain due do simple pathologies is assumed to be effectively treated by general practitioners.

by applying an evidence-based approach to pain cure

We perform in three major sectors: office (ambulatory) setting, operating room procedures and clinical information projects. Our aim is to offer pain relief and markedly improve quality of patient’s life.
