About me

Consultant and Clinical Lead for pain Medicine at Royal Berkshire NHS Hospital and more than 10 years of experience in anaesthesia and pain management. Completed anaesthesia and pain management training in India and UK. Trained in Oxford and a Pain Medicine fellowship in the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Stanmore and University College Hospital London and National Hospital for Neurlogy and Neurosurgery. Completed a further 2 year training in Musculoskeltal Medicine (DMSMed)

I firmly believe in the role of early intervention and the appropriate use of multidisciplinary techniques in treating pain disorders. My clinics aim to offer a comprehensive diagnostic and investigative service complemented by good support from the physiotherapy and psychology specialists. Along with utilizing a full complement of medication treatments, I also perform a variety of interventional procedures such as epidural, facet, sacroiliac joint injections, radiofrequency lesioning, sympathetic and peripheral nerve blocks using X-ray and Ultrasound. I have got qualifications in Interventional pain practice (FIPP) from the USA and from Europe (EDRA). I regularly present in both national and international conferences and am interested in promoting high quality pain education to my patients and other health care professionals. I often hold a number of talks for GPs and other Health care professionals in my local region.
