With members originating in a number of medical specialties, including anesthesiology, internal medicine, neurology, neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, physiatry, and psychiatry, the AAPM has evolved as the primary organization for physicians practicing Pain Medicine in the United States. As a major force in advancing the practice of Pain Medicine, AAPM works hard to provide consumers and healthcare personnel with the most up-to-date information available on the practice of Pain Medicine.
