About me

Consultant in Pain Medicine at the Walton Centre since 2009.
I have a specialist neuropathic pain clinic on Monday afternoon where I offer comprehensive assessment for patients with peripheral and central neuropathic pain and will provide patients with a management plan including pharmacology, topical day case procedures (high dose capsaicin and Botolinum Toxin A injection) and multidiciplinary workup for a psychological based pain management programme or more invasive neuromodulation approaches.
On Tuesaday morning I offer a specialist opioid management clinic where I offer assessment and opioid reduction facilitated via a nurse led clinic and the option of a hospital admission if required. I also offer systematic trials with strong opioids to assess responsiveness before formulating a long term opioid management plan.
Together with our team from the Walton Centre Pain Management Programme I see patients with chronic widespread pain/fibromyaliga and other chronic pain conditions on a Friday and Young Adults once a months.
