Background Information 
Professional profile:

I obtained my primary medical degree from the 1st Moscow Medical Institute in 1985. I was trained in Anaesthesia and Intensive Care Medicine and have a PhD for research on respiratory failure. After moving to England in 1998 I completed standard UK postgraduate training in Anaesthesia and passed the Royal College of Anaesthetists examinations. I spent one year at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, as a visiting instructor (consultant), and specialised in regional anaesthesia. My main professional interest is pain medicine. I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Anaesthetists and have a European Diploma in Anaesthesiology. I am an examiner for the European Diploma in Anaesthesiology.

I run a pain clinic at Spire Elland Hospital with the focus on diagnosis and interventional treatment of spinal pain syndromes such as:

  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Thoracic back pain
  • Upper and lower limb radicular pain
  • Cervicogenic headache (headaches stemming from the neck region)
  • Facial pain

Modern low invasive techniques such as radiofrequency ablation and pulsed radiofrequency are widely used. This applies to facet joint pain, sacroiliac joint pain and radicular pain.

Personal profile:

I am married with two children.
