Oryon Develop are pleased to welcome back Dr Serge Nikolic, Consultant in Pain Medicine, whose previous talks are always excellently reviewed. Indeed, one recent attendee said, "his knowledge and expertise are awe-inspiring. His engaging, informative and entertaining style make for a riveting educational experience."
In this talk Dr Nikolic will cover neck and arm pain, which are unfortunately common conditions in clinic. It is essential that the underlying pathology responsible for this is ascertained so that the appropriate management can be initiated as soon as possible.
The first part of the talk will focus on differential diagnosis, which includes taking a detailed history, as well as the examination and investigations (such as MRI scans, SPECT scans and EMG/NCS) that are used to evaluate the problem and reach the final diagnosis. This will cover confirmation/exclusion of red flags (such as trauma, infection and tumours) as well as cervical spinal pathology with or without neural compression, soft tissue and peripheral nerve compression pathology (such as thoracic outlet syndrome).
The second part will focus on management. This will include various analgesic options, minimally invasive interventions, the role of surgery, and neuromodulation (spinal cord stimulation). It will also outline the onward referral guidelines.
To conclude, focus will be on the importance of appropriate and timely onward referral of patients who fail to improve with conservative treatment.
