      Background Information 
      Professional profile:

      I see patients with chronic pain conditions at the Spire Lea Hospital Cambridge since 2009. Before this, I have been working as a Consultant in Pain Medicine and Anaesthesia in Addenbrooke’s Hospital Pain Clinic since 2005. I am fully trained in interventional pain techniques and I am a Fellow of Interventional Pain Practice (FIPP) of the World Institute of Pain since 2005.

      My main clinical interests lie within a remit of chronic pain of spinal origin (back, thoracic and neck), chronic myofascial (muscle and ligament) pain, nerve (neuropathic) pain/ CRPS, abdominal and pelvic pain.

      I am very interested in exploring multiple ways of addressing patient’s pain which frequently goes beyond traditional biomedical approach and explores their lifestyle, activity levels, exercise and goal setting. Sound understanding of their pain, optimised physical activity and medication, improved sleep, relaxed and positive mind help many patients to gain significant benefit from other appropriately selected interventions such as epidural injections, nerve blocks and denervations. I work in close collaboration with the physiotherapists, surgeons and rheumatologists.

      Personal profile:
