Pain Center Practitioners

Our staff includes five physicians and two nurse practitioners who treat patients at the South Shore Hospital’s Pain Center at 2 Pond Park Road in Hingham.

Each SSAA Pain Physician is board-certified in Pain Medicine by the American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA), in addition to being board-certified in Anesthesiology. Nurse Practitioner Judy Kwong, has extensive experience in Pain Management.

The ABA requires documented training or fellowships in Pain Medicine before members are allowed to become board-certified. The ABA also requires pain physicians to obtain recertification every ten years.
