I am a Consultant in Pain Medicine and Anaesthesia.  I completed my training in anaesthesia and received the Fellowship in Anaesthesia from Royal College of Anaesthetists in 2009. 

Following this I completed my advance pain fellowship with specialist qualification in pain management from Faculty of Pain Medicine, Royal College of Anaesthetists, and passed my Fellowship of Faculty of Pain Medicine examination (FFPMRCA).

To enhance my experience in Interventional pain medicine I completed a year fellowship program from the University Health Network, University of Toronto, Canada.

I am immediate past chairman (UK Chapter) and director of media and public relations and of World Academy of Pain Medicine Ultrasonography (WAPMU). 

I am a member of World institute of Pain (WIP), Spine Intervention Society (SIS), European Society of Regional Anaesthesia (ESRA).

I am the first doctor in the United Kingdom to qualify, Certified interventional pain Sonology examination (CIPS) conducted by world institute of pain.

My clinical experience includes assessing 1100 plus patients in the clinic each year and I perform 500 plus injections each year.

I am qualified in both ultrasound guided pain injections and X –ray guided interventional pain procedures.

In addition to detailed medical assessment I offer treatments like medications, nerve block injection, cooled and conventional radiofrequency treatment (RF Treatment), Botox injections for migraine, Platelet Rich Plasma injections (PRP)

Special interests

I have a special interest in pain arising from degenerative joint disorder including shoulder osteoarthritis, knee, hip osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. I specialise in the radiofrequency treatment of genicular nerves and peripheral nerves to reduce the pain arising from the painful joints.
Use of ultrasound improves accurate target locations and the effectiveness of injections, it also reduces the rate of the complications associated with the procedure. I am proficient in ultrasound guided injection for various pain conditions including joint pains, migraines, tension headaches, occipital headaches, pelvic pain, neuropathic pain (nerve pain), chronic pain after surgery, complex regional pain syndrome etc.

Other interests

I also specialise in the use of ultrasound guided radiofrequency treatment of various chronic pain conditions to prolong the duration of pain relief offered by the nerve blocks.

My goal is to help patients with long standing pain to manage their pain, to improve their function and quality of life using bio-psycho-social approach. I thrive to achieve this goal by applying my extensive knowledge, skills in acute and chronic pain. 

I keep myself trained and up to date with all of the latest pain management procedures with the aim of practicing evidence base medicine to aid patients manage their pain.

In addition to my clinical work, I am actively involved in educating trainee doctors and pain physicians from across the world by teaching them Ultrasound applications in regional anaesthesia, pain medicine and musculoskeletal medicine.

Personal interests

I love drawing cartoons and painting. I enjoy listening to Indian classical, popular contemporary music and watching movies. Keeping ahead with new edge technology and gadgets is something I always like.

Travel is a particular interest of mine as I like to meet people from different backgrounds and cultures. I have travelled extensively in Europe and other parts of the world.
