Dr Tacson Fernandez is a consultant in pain medicine and anaesthesia at the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore, one of London’s leading hospitals in the management of musculo-skeletal disorders. He specialises in interventional chronic pain management, balancing it with a multidimensional model including cognitive, behavioural, pharmacological, interventional and rehabilitative strategies.

Dr Fernandez's interests in interventional pain management include a wide range of interventional therapies including but not limited to facet joint injections/epidurals in the cervical, lumbar and thoracic areas, rhizolysis/radiofrequency denervation, pulsed radiofrequency procedures, dorsal root ganglion blocks, selective nerve blockade, peripheral electrical stimulation strategies, spinal cord stimulators, peripheral nerve stimulators, sympathetic plexus blocks, stellate ganglion blocks and a range of peripheral nerve block techniques to help manage pain.

Dr Fernandez has a range of pharmacological management options for nociceptive, neuropathic and mixed nociceptive-neuropathic pain states including opioid management strategies. He has been an invited speaker on cognitive approaches in pain management both nationally and internationally, and believes in active application of these techniques in his daily practice.
