Membership Benefits

Texas Pain Society (TPS) was established in 1989 and our membership of over 350 pain practitioners represents the practice of pain medicine in Texas with a seat on the Texas Medical Association’s House of Delegates.
 
The TPS is a 501(c) 6 non-profit organization whose mission is to be the organization of pain medicine practitioners in the State of Texas that represents the interests of patients, the public, physicians, and others involved in the care of Texans who suffer from pain.
