Virtual consultations:

I qualified in 1996 at University of Tübingen, Germany. After finishing my MD I completed my postgraduate training in the UK which included a rotation in Anaesthesia in Merseyside and a Pain Fellowship in Liverpool.

In 1997 I was appointed as a consultant, leading a progressive multi-disciplinary Pain Service at Wrexham Maelor Hospital, North Wales.

I have a strong interest in interventional pain medicine which I teach widely at national and international courses. I successfully co-run an international cadaver workshop on radiofrequency techniques at the University of Hamburg, currently four times a year. With a strong commitment for better research in pain medicine I set up the “National Spinal RF Registry” which I currently chair. In 2018 I was made visiting Professor for Social & Life Sciences at Glyndwr University, Wrexham.

My special interests are interventional pain procedures (injections), including radio-frequency treatment for spinal and joint pains (knees and hips), comprehensive pain management solutions, including pain management programme (PMP) in close collaboration with other clinicians and non-surgical treatment options for joint pain.
