Symptoms for which you should visit the Pain Management Clinic, where a neurosurgeon will treat patients in her practice:

  • acute low back pain (in the lumbar area)
  • recurrent low back pain (lumbago, sciatica)
  • nerve pain (anywhere throughout the body)
  • known disc herniation/spinal herniation
  • diagnosed cervical hernia
  • known nerve root pain
  • hip pain
  • knee pain

“At Panoráma Polyclinic, in addition to the physical examination of patients, I also perform minimally invasive procedures (treatment of nerve pains by nerve block injection supported by intensified X-ray imaging, ablation).

At the National Institute of Clinical Neurosciences (now OMIII), in addition to general neurosurgical care, I trained for 4 years in specialised pain therapy care, where I had the opportunity to meet a wide range of patients from all over the country suffering from chronic and, where appropriate, complex pain syndromes. At our institute, we have treated a wide range of patients by using from minimally invasive pain therapies (of a smaller surgical extent) to more complex chemical or physical neuromodulation pain therapies.

Through my clinical experience, I have come to understand that the care of patients living with chronic pain syndrome requires a multidisciplinary, holistic approach. It is multidisciplinary, because in addition to neurosurgery among the medical specialties, it may be necessary to involve a neurologist, internist, psychiatrist, and health allied professions such as dietitian, manual therapist, physiotherapist and psychologist. It is also holistic, because in order to heal, the patient must be understood, diagnosed and treated as a whole, by taking into consideration the physical, mental, spiritual and social components.

Panoráma Polyclinic offers full or partial care with multidisciplinary and holistic approach for patients suffering from acute and chronic pain syndromes. I can help patients on the neurosurgical side of this care spectrum.

During my training I performed numerous minimally invasive pain relief procedures supported by intensified X-ray imaging, I participated in many neuromodulation surgeries for pain relief, so I met many patients where I saw when the possibilities of conservative and minimally invasive therapies were still working, or had already been exhausted and surgical intervention, neuromodulation, may have been needed.”
