Your health is covered at every stage
Thanks to this unit, which is part of the speciality of Anaesthesiology and Rescuscitation, Hospitales Universitarios San Roque provides an adequate treatment for pain, improving the quality of life of its patients.
You have to start with the assumption that pain is a subjective experience, mixing feelings, sensations and behaviour. Therefore, controlling and reducing this perception or negative experience is the primary task of the units that treat pain.
At Hospitales Universitarios San Roque, our aim is that the patient reaches the maximum comfort possible. These patients very often face problems that do not have a decisive treatment, so our objective is to alleviate or reduce pain in order to improve the quality of their lives.
It is of utter importance to analyse each case in detail before deciding what to do, and to study the patients’ personal history and psychosocial factors in order to know the different spheres that influence their perception of pain. From there, the most optimal treatment is sought at all times.
Over a hundred patients come on a monthly basis to Hospitales Universitarios San Roque Pain Unit in order to find relief from the pathology they suffer from.
