Coronavirus: pain service update
In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, please read our advice and information before sending any referrals.
The Guys and St Thomas' Pain Management and Neuromodulation Centre is internationally recognised as a centre of clinical and academic excellence in the management of chronic pain.
We have a long history of providing traditional chronic pain management treatments such as day case procedures and outpatient treatments.
We've also established world prominence in the fields of spinal cord stimulation and other neuromodulation techniques, as well as in addressing the psychological, physical and social impacts of chronic pain with our pain management programmes. This is delivered through the INPUT pain management department.
The centre collaborates closely with spinal surgeons in the assessment and treatment of spinal pains, and similarly provides highly specialised, multidisciplinary assessments for conditions including chronic headache, facial pain and pelvic pain.
We have a dedicated team leading ground-breaking research aimed at improving our understanding of chronic pain conditions. Our clinical research programme led by Dr Adnan Al-Kaisy (clinical and academic director) and Samuel Wesley (research manager) is focused on:
- investigating new innovations
- advancing current treatments
- improving the quality of life of patients with chronic pain.
Our current research work includes local, national and international clinical studies in areas such as:
- endoscopic pain relief interventions
- novel pain medications
- pain management strategies.

Where possible, we welcome healthcare professionals visiting the department; we already have excellent ties with many leading international pain management hospitals.
