About me

Dr Sarah Aturia�s elective NHS and private practices encompass all aspects of Acute, Chronic and Cancer pain with a special interest in Spine, Musculoskeletal, Neuropathic, Chronic Post-Surgical and Pelvic Pain, and Fibromyalgia. She believes early intervention is vital to minimise progression to chronicity and recognises that persistent pain presents a considerable daily challenge to patients with devastating consequences and a negative effect on their quality of life.
She adopts a multidisciplinary approach and offers an individually tailored management plan. This includes medication advice and rationalisation and the appropriate Pain Intervention with emphasis on rehabilitation physiotherapy. Procedures are performed in a theatre environment under fluoroscopy and ultrasound guidance and include:
� Radiofrequency neurotomy for spinal facet and sacroiliac joints pain

� Pulsed Radiofrequency of dorsal root and sympathetic ganglia and nerves
� Trigger point, scar tissue and sacro-coccygeal injections
