As part of our services at our Planned Care Centre at Queen Mary’s Hospital we have a pain service for assessment and possible pain management. This includes the management of patients with chronic pain problems which typically include back pain, sciatica and neck pain performing minimally invasive procedures such as radiofrequency treatments, epidural injection, facet joint injections in the back and neck for pain arising due to arthritis, plexus block, nerve block, cryotherapy, trigger point injections for pain in muscle groups and management of neuropathic pain which arises secondary to nerve damage.
This service is operating as a fully staffed 3-day theatre service and 7-day ward area.
Our Planned Care Centre has 32 surgical beds across two ward areas. Surgery registration takes place in our Surgical Admissions Lounge in Mottingham Ward and after surgery patients return to Avery Hill Ward, located in the Planned Care Centre on the 4th floor in the Main Building.
