About me

Anthony Hammond is a senior physician and Rheumatologist who has specialised in the interventional management of spinal pain problems particularly disc related pain and sciatica. Building on the International Spinal Intervention Society's teaching, he has brought together a comprehensive suite of techniques directed towards the anatomical diagnosis of pain generators and their treatment including advanced techniques. For example, percutaneous disc decompression by Disc FX (mini-microdiscectomy) allows the treatment of multiple disc levels as a day case under sedation with only skin stab incisions and is used for chronic back pain with good, audited and published outcomes. For sciatica, endoscopic discectomy allows an option instead of open surgery in selected cases also allowing day case treatment and fast recovery. He is experinced with spinal endoscopic and andhesiolysis techniques in failed back surgery cases. He also employs recent advances in antibiotic therapy for Modic related spinal pain. Amongst them these techniques allow the diagnosis and treatment of back pain problems that have often eluded other management for long periods. He now works mainly in private practice at the recently opened Kent Institute of Medicine and Surgery, In London and is pleased to collaborate with international colleagues in the EuroPain Clinic group.
