Jehangir Hospital has launched a Pain Management Department to be headed by Dr Madhuri Lokapur.

Pain is the body’s mechanism to alert us to seek help for something that is not quite right with it. Most patients consult a doctor because of pain. On many occasions, the pain needs to be addressed more than the actual disease. Typical situations where pain management is necessary are chronic back pain, sciatica, intractable headache, neck and shoulder pain, trigeminal neuralgia.

At the pain clinic in Jehangir Hospital, state-of-the-art therapies will be employed to offer relief from pain to patients. Radiofrequency ablations, CT-guided neurolysis, image-guided nerve blocks and innovative medicines will be used as per the need of the individual. Dr Laxmi Koylaguntha, Professor of Pain Management at the Anderson institute at Dallas in USA, inaugurated the pain clinic.
