Some of the principal treatments carried out by Prof Neeraj Saxena at Spire include:
I am currently a consultant in pain management and anaesthetics, at Cwm Taf University hospitals. I am also the clinical lead for inpatient pain management. I have led the development of a South Wales' Network of Acute Pain teams (SwNAP) to raise the standards of inpatient pain management and am currently a council member of the Welsh Pain Society and SwNAP.
I offer the full range of medicinal, interventional and non-surgical treatments for all painful conditions. I have a special interest and expertise in knee, shoulder and back pain. I use motivational interviewing and shared decision making tools to support patients make their own treatment choices.
I am actively involved in research and have published widely. I was awarded the NISCHR Clinical Research Fellowship in 2014. My main research interests are in understanding the brain mechanisms of pain perception and improving clinical outcomes of various pain therapies. I have presented at national and international scientific meetings and regularly get invited to talk about pain management to medical students and medical specialists. I am also responsible for the training of junior doctors in Cwm Taf hospitals, who aim to become pain specialists.
After graduating in medicine (MBBS), I completed my postgraduate training in anaesthesia and pain management (MD) from a premier centre of Delhi University, before moving to the UK. I completed my anaesthetic training, working, in most of the hospitals of South Wales. During this period I was awarded the Fellowship of the Royal College of Anaesthetists (FRCA).
I further pursued advanced level training in pain management and received the Fellowship of the Faculty of Pain Medicine of the Royal College of Anaesthetists (FFPMRCA). During this period I also attained a Masters degree in Pain Management (MSc), from Cardiff University, to complement my broad-based clinical experience. I have also attended various world-renowned pain treatment centres, both in the UK and abroad to gain specialised clinical experience.
