Pain and Palliation

Ninety percent of patients with advanced cancer say pain is the most distressing symptom of their disease.

For virtually all patients, cancer pain can be controlled.  Julia Georgesen, MSN, is a fellow in the American Academy of Pain Management.

She works closely with the center's oncologist, providing consultations in pain and symptom management developing an individualized plan of care for persons experiencing discomforts due to their cancer.
