Persons with sickle cell disease can have both chronic (daily) pain and sudden (VOC) pain. IHTC’s approach to pain management involves multiple experts and techniques.

Our team includes physicians, psychologist, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, social workers and physical therapist. We meet regularly to discuss patient cases, standards in pain management, alternative treatments and new findings related to pain management.

The IHTC helps patients and families develop personalized pain management plans. Partnering with you and your family allows for a proactive approach to pain control for your situation. Our program provides tools to enable treatment of pain early, potentially avoiding a hospitalization.
