    AbstractOptimal care of surgical patients includes effective control of incisional pain. Attention is beginning to be focused on new in-hospital services created to improve the management of postoperative pain. Additional information regarding the organization and operation of this type of service, especially in the framework of a university hospital, is presented. The specific roles of an academic anesthesiologist involved in acute pain management are: to provide leadership by the development of effective services, to clarify through research optimal treatments, to train future practitioners in the management of acute pain, and to serve as a consultant for improving pain control for the whole medical community.
