Our mission is to compassionately offer our patients therapies and treatments targeted at providing them with pain relief, as well as an improved level of functioning and overall quality of life.

Freedom Pain Hospital is unlike any other hospital in existence.

We understand and respect that your time is valuable, and in an effort to help chronic pain patients gain a higher level of functioning and increased quality of life as quickly as possible, we work efficiently through the evaluation, diagnosis, and implementation of your treatment plan.
