Stay healthy by staying informed!

We believe every patient should benefit from knowing beforehand what to expect and be actively involved in his own care. This section complements the health education you are receiving from your health care providers. Your physician should always be your primary resource for health education. Information at the Patient Education should not be construed as personal medical advice.

At Clemenceau Medical Center, we care about thei quality of our patient's life. Since pain can impact your life and your beloved ones, it is very important to talk to your doctor about your pain. As a patient, it is your right to have a life free of pain.

There are two kinds of pain:
1- Acute pain, such as that associated with accidents and surgery.
2- Chronic pain that lasts for more than 3 to 6 months. It can be the result from untreated acute pain.

The management of any type of pain needs to be individualized, and is best done in consultation with one’s health care provider.
