About me

I am a consultant in pain medicine and anaesthetics. After finishing my medical degree from India, I moved to Ireland and completed my anaesthetic training over there. Following this I undertook fellowships in pain medicine in Ireland and England and obtained excellent training in this sub-speciality. I have been awarded the Fellowship in Anaesthesia and Diploma in Pain Medicine from the College of Anaesthetists of Ireland and its Faculty of Pain Medicine respectively.

I have led and been involved in many research projects and published numerous articles in peer-reviewed medical journals. I regularly attend conferences and workshops to keep myself updated on the last advances in the field of pain medicine. I teache pain medicine trainees and medical students and have been a faculty member on courses. I am responsible for training of junior doctors at the University Hospital of Wales.

I work in the NHS as Consultant in Pain Medicine and Anaesthetics at University Hospital of Wales and University Hospital Llandough. I treat patients with various types of chronic pain conditions and has a special interest in spinal pain, neuropathic (nerve) pain, headache, migraine (Botox for migraine) and cancer pain. I manage patients holistically and follow the biopsychosocial model of pain management.

In the private sector I work at Nuffield Health, Cardiff and Vale Hospitals.
