A consultant in Anaesthetics and Pain Management is a physician with specialist training in the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of all different types of pain. Pain can be classed as a wide range of disorders including acute pain and chronic pain. This can also arise for many different reasons such as nerve damage, past surgery or problems such as diabetes or
fibromyalgia. From time to time, pain can even be the problem all by itself, without any obvious cause or underlying condition.

Here at the North West Independent Hospital, we have Anaesthetics and Pain Management Consultants with an in-depth knowledge of the physiology of pain, with the ability to
evaluate patients with complicated pain problems. Due to this our consultants can prescribe medications or recommend surgical treatment such as:

  • Steroid injection
  • Facet joint injection
  • Epidural injection

Investigations may be carried out to help diagnose your problem, we can offer a wide range of diagnostic test such as:

  • Blood tests
  • X-ray
  • Ultrasound
  • MRI

Your consultation will usually involve a detailed personal history, a physical exam and review of tests that you have had performed. The questions you are asked, and the physical examination will focus on your problem, however the consultant will want to know about past and current medical history as well.

Our treatments are designed to relieve and manage pain, but also to include preventative treatments and advice for the long term. These treatments may be delivered in the form of exercise, medication or surgery, among others. We will devise the most suitable care plan to suit your specific care requirements.
