HYDERABAD: Instead of just prescribing medication, an interventional pain management specialist should utilise all sources of treatment to eliminate pain in the fastest and most effective way possible for a patient, said Dr GS Rao, managing director of Yashoda Hospital.

“Pain starts off as an alarm indicating that something is wrong, but persistent pain often serves no purpose and can have a strong negative effect on the personal and social aspects of one’s life. Pain is a major problem and the lack of a proper treatment strategy is a concern,” said Dr GS Rao speaking at a workshop on interventional pain management at Yashoda Hospital in Hyderabad Saturday.

The three-day workshop is aimed at training doctors belonging to various specialisations like pain medicine, anaesthesiology, neuro-surgery, among others in pain management.

A live pain management session with patients enabling them to have a direct interaction with the experts was conducted as part of the workshop. The three-day workshop will conclude on Sunday with a Cadaveric workshop at forensic department of Gandhi Hospital.
