Dr Francis Babatola
Pain Management Consultant
BSc (Hons), MBBS, PhD (Wales), Dip. Anaesth, FRCA (UK), FFPMRCA
My major interest lies in management of chronic pain whether malignant or non-malignant. I started my training overseas (in Nigeria) and continued in the UK, first at the Cardiff group of hospitals in Wales, then the Royal Postgraduate Medical School at the Hammersmith in London and then at the Birmingham Group of Hospitals. I holds a PhD degree from the University of Wales.
I consult at Spire Little Aston Hospital on chronic pain syndromes and also carries out pain management procedures.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Francis Babatola at Spire include:
Spire Little Aston Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
My hobbies include football, travelling and cooking. I love music and play the saxophone. I have also published some academic papers on the resistance of the nasal passage and has been cited in major ENT textbooks.
I'm also involved in direct development of local communities in Nigeria via locally derived charitable organisations.
