"The facilities and technology at Spire Hospital are latest and cutting edge. All staff are committed to achieving full patient satisfaction."
I am a consultant in pain medicine. I have extensive experience in managing patients with complex chronic pain. I manage patients suffering from all types of short term and persistent pain, including the knee, back, neck, elbow, and shoulder pain, as well as abdominal-pelvic pain and complex regional pain syndrome.
I undertake pain procedures for headaches, face, neck, shoulder, elbow, wrists, hands, rib, abdomen, back, hip, tailbone, knee, ankle, and feet. In addition, I treat patients with post-surgical pain.
My special interest is headache and orofacial pain, including trigeminal neuralgia. I use innovative techniques such as radiofrequency denervation techniques, ultrasound guided injections and targeted injections to relieve the symptoms of various complex chronic pain conditions including chronic pelvic pain.
I perform more than 1,200 pain intervention procedures per annum, the most common being epidural injections for back pain, facet joint steroid injections, nerve blocks and radiofrequency ablations of nerve etc.
I am committed to providing excellent care to my patients using a holistic, patient-centred and patient-focused approach to ensure the best management plan.
In addition to my clinical work, I also really enjoy being involved in training and education of pain medicine to trainees of other specialties, student nurses and colleagues from other sub-specialties. I currently lead for ultrasound guided outpatient pain relief injections and orofacial pain at Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Dr Roshan Thawale at Spire include:
