Wasser Pain Management Centre

The Wasser Pain Management Centre provides patient care, education and research in the area of chronic, disabling pain disorders.

The Centre, located on the 11th floor of the Research Tower at Mount Sinai Hospital (entrance off Murray Street), was established November 1999 through a generous gift from Marla and Larry Wasser and others. It continues to build on the work started 25 years ago by the Craniofacial Pain and Headache Research Unit, a joint initiative of Neurology and Dentistry.
