Welcome to the Texas Pain Society

The Texas Pain Society is a non-profit organization of over 300 pain practitioners that are involved in acute and chronic pain management of patients in Texas. The Texas Pain Society represents the practice of pain medicine in Texas with a seat on the Texas Medical Association's House of Delegates.

 

Our mission is to improve the quality of life of Texans who suffer from pain.


 

 
Choosing Wisely

Aims to promote conversations between physicians and patients by helping patients choose care that is: 

  • Supported by evidence 
  • Not duplicative of other tests or procedures already received 
  • Free from harm 
  • Truly necessary

In response to this challenge, national organizations representing medical specialists have been asked to “choose wisely” by identifying five tests or procedures commonly used in their field, whose necessity should be questioned and discussed. The resulting lists of “Five Things Physicians and Patients Should Question” will spark discussion about the need—or lack thereof — for many frequently ordered tests or treatments.
