Dr Richard Griffiths

Consultant in Pain Management


Specialises in

I qualified from UCL Medical School in 1997 and was appointed a consultant in 2007. My clinical role involves regular NHS clinics in Sevenoaks, Crowborough, Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells where I see adult patients with a wide range of pain conditions. 

My practice provides diagnosis, imaging and treatment of painful conditions where surgery is not needed, has been unsuccessful or is complicated. Common issues include degenerative and arthritic conditions, spine, joint and back injury and slipped spinal discs. I work regularly with a number of specialists, surgeons and physicians to ensure all reasonable options are provided for.
