Algology (Pain science) is the field of medicine that deals with the treatment of persistent, chronic pain that does not respond to conventional painkillers and disrupts the patient's comfort of life. Algologists are physicians who have completed their specialization training in one of the medical fields of Anesthesiology and Reanimation, Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation and Neurology and then received subspecialty training on Algology (Pain).

Applications include a wide range of methods from drug therapy to interventional therapy. Interventional treatments performed by algologists are performed by visualizing bones, nerves and surrounding tissues, accompanied by imaging methods such as fluoroscopy, ultrasound, computed tomography or MR. The procedure is usually performed under sedoanalgesia or only under local anesthesia.
