The Ottawa Hospital

The Ottawa Hospital (TOH) is a tertiary care, university-affiliated, teaching hospital on three campuses (Civic, General and Riverside).

Pain Clinic Staff

TOH Pain Clinic is staffed by 8-10 experienced anesthesiologists from both the Civic and General campuses. We are assisted by RNs, RPN’s and clerical workers. The fellow will have the opportunity to work with medical staff from Palliative care, Diagnostic Imaging and allied health professionals from The Rehabilitation Centre Pain Program.

Clinical Exposure

Fellows will become experts at diagnosing, managing and treating (counselling, pharmacotherapy and interventions) chronic pain and cancer pain. The fellow will be exposed to both inpatient and outpatient pain consultations. Interventional techniques offered in TOH Pain Clinic include but are not limited to: basic steroid injections, fluoroscopic-guided blocks (e.g. celiac plexus, lumbar sympathetic), radiofrequency ablation, intraspinal catheters for cancer pain, intraspinal drug trials and spinal cord stimulation.

The pain clinic is well equipped with monitors, C-arm, radiolucent X-Ray table, ultrasound machine, radiofrequency ablation machine, nerve stimulator, and cryoprobe.
