Dr Muhammad Ather
Consultant in Pain Management
FFARCSI, FRCA, FFPMRCA, FIPP
Availability: Tuesday evening.
I am a consultant in pain management at Spire Hartswood Hospital, Brentwood, and Spire London East Hospital, Redbridge (both in Essex), offering pain treatment in our clean and comfortable private hospitals.
I qualified in 1983. In my private practice at Spire Hartswood Hospital and Spire London East Hospital, I have the benefit of modern MRI and CT scanning facilities and specialist physiotherapy services, including hydrotherapy.
For carefully selected patients in whom conservative treatments have failed, I offer some of the latest interventional procedures to manage spinal pain. These day case treatments are performed under X-ray control and include facet joint injections, sacroiliac joint cool radiofrequency denervation, nerve root blocks, radiofrequency lesioning of intervertebral disc, epidural injections and disc biacuplasty.
I organise and run courses in pain management, including an annual hands-on cadaver workshop in London, with a faculty of pain management colleagues from the UK, Europe and USA.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Muhammad Ather at Spire include:
British Pain Society
Interventional Pain Practice
Royal College of Anaesthetists
World Institute of Pain
Consultant in Pain Management, Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust
