Pain Management

At East Sydney Private Hospital, our onsite pain clinic provides personalised diagnosis and treatment to patients suffering from chronic (longer than six months), and acute (sudden onset) pain of the back, and musculoskeletal system including sciatica pain, joint pain.

Our multidisciplinary team of Pain Physicians, Neurosurgeons, Orthopaedic Specialists, Radiologists, Physiotherapists and Clinical Nurse Specialists work together to tailor personalised patient empowerment programs. These programs aim to provide a comprehensive service that explores conservative and minimally invasive surgical intervention depending on the patient’s condition and severity of the disease.

Our spine and pain management specialists work with patients, focusing on improving their quality of life through comprehensive diagnostic services and holistic treatment techniques and therapies.

Our pain clinic’s goal is to coordinate all care at the time of consultation, ensuring the patient experience is streamlined and unnecessary delays are reduced.
