Abdominal and Pelvic Pain

The Pain Management Program at UT Southwestern Medical Center offers expert, compassionate care for patients experiencing abdominal or pelvic pain due to conditions such as inflamed nerves, interstitial cystitis, pancreatis, and post-surgical scar pain. 

Additionally, our specialists provide advanced treatments for patients with pelvic pain associated with issues such as:

  • Endometriosis and gynecological conditions
  • Ligament injuries
  • Prostatitis
  • Testicular and urologic disorders

UT Southwestern is one of the few pain management centers in Texas with onsite pain specialists, behavioral medicine specialists, and physical therapists. Our program uses therapies derived from the latest scientific advances in pain management, and our specialists use the least invasive procedures available to diagnose, locate, and treat your abdominal and pelvic pain.

Evaluation and Treatments

After a comprehensive evaluation, a UT Southwestern abdominal and pelvic pain specialist thoroughly explains your diagnosis and treatment options. The specialist may advise you on specific actions you can take to reduce pain, including lifestyle changes that can help improve your condition and maintain long-term health.

Depending on your specific condition, the UT Southwestern specialist may also prescribe muscle relaxants, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, anti-inflammatory cortisone injections, physical therapy, or minimally invasive therapeutic procedures.

UT Southwestern’s comprehensive medical resources enable patients to have an initial consultation, testing, follow-up visits, and any needed medical procedures all in one location.
