About me

Professor Saxena is a Pain management specialist and currently a Consultant in Pain Management and Anaesthetics and the Clinical Lead for inpatient pain management at Cwm Taf Morgannwg University hospitals.

After graduating in Medicine (MBBS), he completed his postgraduate training in Anaesthesia & Pain Management (MD- research) from a premier centre of Delhi University before moving to the UK. He completed his anaesthetic training, working, in most of the hospitals of South Wales. During this period he was awarded the Fellowship of the Royal College of Anaesthetists (FRCA). He further pursued advanced level training in Pain Management and received the Fellowship of the Faculty of Pain Medicine of the Royal College of Anaesthetists (FFPMRCA). During this period he also attained a Masters degree in Pain Management (MSc), from Cardiff University, to complement his broad-based clinical experience. He has also attended various world-renowned pain treatment centres, both in the UK and abroad to gain specialised clinical experience.

He has led the development of a South Wales' Network of Acute Pain teams (SwNAP) to raise the standards of inpatient pain management and is currently Chair of the Welsh Pain Society and SwNAP.

He is actively involved in research and has published widely. He was awarded the NISCHR Clinical Research Fellowship in 2014. His main research interests are in understanding the brain mechanisms of pain perception and improving clinical outcomes of various pain therapies. He has presented at national and international scientific meetings and regularly gets invited to talk about pain management to medical students and medical specialists. He is also responsible for the training of junior doctors, in Cwm Taf hospitals, who aim to become pain specialists.

He offers the full range of medicinal, interventional and non-surgical treatments for all painful conditions. He has a special interest and expertise in knee, shoulder and back pain. He also uses motivational interviewing and shared decision making tools to support patients make their own treatment choices.
