Bombay (Maharashtra) [India], December 7 (ANI / Heylin Spark): Mumbai Pain School in association with Avanos & Fellowship Program in Pain Medicine, DY Patil University hosted a two-day workshop on Spine and Pain Medicine at DY Patil Hospital Nerul Navi Mumbai on December 04 and 5, 2021.
This workshop was conducted under the guidance of Dr Sidharth Verma (Program Director of Spine and Pain Medicine, DY Patil Hospital Navi Mumbai) and Dr Uttam Sidhaye (Pain Medicine Consultant, Pune).
The program consisted of live lectures and workshops with patients with painful orthopedic and neurological conditions such as trigeminal neuralgia, knee and shoulder arthritis, slippery disc (pain in the spine) and neck pain (neck pain or spondylitis).
It was the first workshop of its kind in West India to use the latest chilled radiofrequency ablation technology available at DY Patil Hospital. It is relevant to mention that DY Patil Hospital was the first in West India to purchase cooled radio frequency equipment and dedicate it to patient charities under the leadership of its President, Dr Vijay Patil.
Spine and Pain Medicine is a new branch of medicine treating patients with chronic painful conditions like back pain, knee pain, shoulder pain, neck pain, cancer pain , etc. These conditions are debilitating, resulting in lost hours of work, and are often treated inefficiently by methods.
Minimally Invasive Pain and Spine Interventions (MIPSI) are performed by spine and pain doctors to get rid of the pain caused by these conditions. Many of these procedures were demonstrated to the delegates of this workshop who were all aspiring pain faculties and doctors in government medical schools in West India.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr Manisha Bobade, Director of DY Patil Hospital, assured his full support in promoting MIPSI procedures and praised President Dr Vijay Patil’s visionary efforts to bring cutting edge technology to residents of the region.
Dr Ajit Baviskar, Head of Clinical Services, Dr Surekha Patil – Dean DY Patil Medical College and Dr Akanksha Saberwal – Director of Fellowship Program were also present on the occasion.
Dr Sidharth Verma, who is also the founder of Mumbai Pain School, gave the participants training on how to start a pain clinic and bring this unique technology to patients of all classes. Such training should lead to an increase in the number of these spine and pain clinics in the community to provide comprehensive coverage against chronic pain conditions.
