What is Palliative ?

Palliative care, on the other hand, focuses on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness, with the goal of improving quality of life for both patients and their families. It's not just about managing physical pain but also addressing emotional, social, and spiritual needs.

Palliative care is a specialized medical approach aimed at improving the quality of life for patients and their families who are facing serious illnesses. Unlike traditional medical care, which often focuses solely on treating the disease itself, palliative care takes a holistic approach.


Pain and Palliative Disorders

Pain Disorders: Chronic pain refers to pain that persists for an extended period, typically more than three to six months, despite appropriate medical treatment. Chronic pain can result from various underlying conditions, including but not limited to:
Neuropathic Pain: Resulting from damage or dysfunction in the nervous system, conditions like diabetic neuropathy, postherpetic neuralgia, or nerve injuries can lead to chronic neuropathic pain.
Chronic Pelvic Pain: Commonly seen in conditions like endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, or chronic prostatitis.
Back Pain: Conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or chronic muscle strain can lead to ongoing back pain.
Palliative Care Disorders: While palliative care is often associated with end-of-life care, it's not limited to terminal conditions and can be provided alongside curative treatments. Disorders that may require palliative care include:
Neurodegenerative Disorders: Conditions like advanced Parkinson's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or advanced dementia may necessitate palliative care to manage symptoms and provide support for both patients and their families.
End-Stage Renal Disease: Patients undergoing dialysis or facing kidney failure may require palliative care to manage symptoms and provide support during treatment decisions.

Treatment Options

Regional Blocks

Regional blocks, also known as nerve blocks, are a type of pain management technique that involves injecting a local anesthetic near a cluster of nerves to block pain signals from reaching the brain. This targeted approach can provide significant relief for various types of acute and chronic pain, including:

Joint Pain: Regional blocks can be effective for managing pain associated with conditions such as arthritis or injury.
Back Pain: Epidural steroid injections and facet joint blocks are commonly used to alleviate back pain caused by disc herniation, spinal stenosis, or facet joint dysfunction.

Palliative Surgery

Palliative surgery aims to improve quality of life by alleviating pain and symptoms associated with a serious illness or condition. Unlike curative surgery, which focuses on treating the underlying disease, palliative surgery is aimed at providing comfort and relief.

Debulking Surgery: Removing part of a tumor to reduce its size and alleviate symptoms such as pain, obstruction, or compression of nearby structures.
Palliative Chemotherapy: Administering chemotherapy to shrink tumors, alleviate symptoms, and improve quality of life in patients with advanced cancer.
Stent Placement: Inserting a stent to open up blocked or narrowed passageways, such as the esophagus or bile duct, to relieve symptoms and improve comfort.

Diagnosing the cause of pain is the first step towards effective management. Our experienced medical team employs various diagnostic techniques, including:

Physical Examination: A thorough physical examination allows our healthcare professionals to assess symptoms and pinpoint areas of concern.
Imaging Studies: X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, and other imaging tests help visualize internal structures and identify abnormalities that may be contributing to pain.
