Specialised Pain Medicine
This private Pain Clinic provides an initial consultation lasting 30-60 minutes with our Specialist Pain Medicine Physician, Dr Philip Cornish. Depending upon his assessment, it may also involve assessment and management by a variety of other medical and allied health professionals.
Key to this process is accurate diagnosis of the origin of your pain. While it is possible with an accurate history and physical examination to gain an understanding of why you have pain, it is our experience that nerve blocks are frequently a useful additional tool for diagnostic purposes. Dr Cornish has internationally recognised expertise in the field of nerve blocks. If diagnostic nerve blocks are considered necessary, they will be discussed at the initial consultation but will be scheduled for a later time.
Following your consultation a comprehensive assessment letter will be forwarded to your usual general practitioner to provide continuity of care. We will also liaise as required with your other medical and allied health treatment providers to assist you in achieving improved quality of life.
Specialised Pain Medicine offers a full range of diagnostic and therapeutic medical procedures relating to pain medicine, including regional anaesthesia and neuromodulation. Procedural interventions are performed at Memorial Hospital, Flinders Private Hospital, Parkwynd Private Hospital or North Eastern Community Hospital. Minor procedures not requiring anaesthesia are carried out in our rooms at Specialised Pain Medicine.
