Leading the Field in Transitional Pain Care

The Transitional Pain Service (TPS) is a comprehensive multidisciplinary pain management program for patients who are at risk of chronic post-surgical pain and pain-related disability.

A First-of-Its-Kind Pain Program

The Transitional Pain Service is a world-leading pain program pioneered at the Toronto General Hospital's Department of Anesthesia and Pain Management.

"What our program aims to do is to tackle two issues:

1) to break the cycle of acute pain that becomes chronic, and


2) to also wean and appropriately monitor the opioid use of our patient population."
