Advocate Children's Hospital - Park Ridge's pediatric pain management program is one of only a few such programs in the Chicago area. Physicians specially trained in pediatric anesthesia and pain management work closely with surgeons and pediatric subspecialists to offer comprehensive pediatric pain management services during and after surgery. Pain management services include an advanced technique - pediatric epidurals - which safely block pain for children of all ages-eliminating the risks and side effects associated with narcotics. Advocate Children's Hospital is one of only a few hospitals in the Chicago area to offer pediatric epidurals.

Epidurals deliver pain-blocking medications directly to nerves in the back, where pain receptors are located. Doctors also use epidurals to relieve pain during recovery, which can help children heal faster and leave the hospital sooner. And, parents can feel confident knowing trained pediatric anesthesiologists are handling their child's care.
