Dr. Buckley's particular interests are pain, both acute and chronic. He is the Director of the Pain Management Centre at the Hamilton General Hospital and has been extensively involved in the development and organization of the acute post operative pain service for adult and pediatric patients, and the pediatric sedation services. His clinical practice is divided between chronic pain management and anesthesia at McMaster University, with an interest in pediatric practice.
The mission of the Michael G.

As Director of the Michael G. DeGroote National Pain Centre, Dr. Buckley's work focusses on improving the management of chronic pain through the dissemination of best practice information and guidelines for managing pain.
