Consultant in Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine since 2007.
Areas of interest
I am an experienced Pain Consultant; my NHS base is Stepping Hill Hospital where I am the Clinical Lead for Chronic Pain. I am also affiliated with NHS Pain Clinics in Buxton and Macclesfield.
My practice is primarily Spinal related pain, and I have considerable experience in injection based treatments for low back pain and sciatica. I am experienced in Radiofrequency Denervation procedures for low back pain.
Medicines often form part of pain control, and I am able to advise on how to safely maximise benefit here.
Please contact my secretary if further details needed.
