Dr Krishna is committed to a career in Pain Medicine. The issues of pain assessment and management captured Dr Krishna’s attention early on in his medical career, when he realized the high prevalence and constant under treatment of pain in the hospitals and the community. Though pain is considered to be the 5th vital sign, the adverse consequences of inadequately managed pain continue to be ignored by the majority of health care professionals. Through Pain Spa Dr Krishna is committed to improving the pain and suffering of patients with chronic pain.
Dr Krishna has a wide range of experience in treating patients with chronic pain. He currently treats more than 500 new patients annually in the NHS and deals with a wide range of chronic pain conditions. His specialist interests include back pain, neuropathic pain, fibromyalgia and interventional pain treatments.
Dr Krishna firmly believes in the holistic approach of pain management, one that focuses not only on pain relief but also the functional and emotional well being of the patient. He is a great advocate of patient empowerment through patient education and considers clinical consultation to be a partnership based on effective communication and collaboration between the patient and the doctor.
Dr Krishna is a member of the Faculty of Pain Medicine in the UK and is registered with the General Medical Council.
