Pain serves several highly useful functions, like helping you monitor the state of your body and warning you of the need to take action. In fact, people born without the ability to feel pain often die at a young age from injuries they never feel. Unfortunately, long-term chronic pain doesn’t serve this purpose, and can have a huge impact on you, your family, and your life as a whole.

Our goal at The Johns Hopkins Blaustein Pain Treatment Center is to reduce our patients’ pain and improve their quality of life. To help us realize this goal, we regularly conduct research into the causes of pain and new treatments to alleviate it.

Ongoing Clinical Trials:

  • A prospective study examining the benefit of celiac plexus neurolysis (block) for the relief of pain resulting from pancreatic cancer

Co-Investigator: Michael Erdek, MD

Co-investigator: Haitham Al-Grain, MD

Co-Investigator: Suzanne Nesbit, PharmD
