I was appointed as Pain and anaesthetic consultant in 2012, following extensive and high quality training in anaesthesia and pain medicine in Yorkshire deanery, Nottingham, North London and India before that, spanning a period in excess of 12 years.
I undertook Advanced Pain Fellowship in West Yorkshire scheme at Leeds and Bradford, and was awarded Fellowship of Faculty of Pain Medicine of Royal College of Anaesthetists.
I am on the editorial board of Journal of Observational Pain Medicine. I have co-authored a chapter in a pain textbook titled ‘Symptom Oriented Pain Management’. I co-founded and manage the national group for pain fellows in UK.
I believe in a holistic approach to pain management which includes medications, physical therapy, simple and high end interventions, as well as cognitive behaviour therapy.
