Dr Victor Mendis Pain Management Consultant at Spire Hartswood Hospital

Our guest on Body Talk this week was Dr Victor Mendis who is a pain management consultant at Spire Hartswood Hospital. He talked about this relatively new specialism in medicine and how he helps patients, with long term pain, improve their quality of life.

Victor told us about his interesting training in Sri Lanka, the Ukraine and London.

He then went on to explain what a pain management consultant actually does and the treatments that they carry out. 

Dr Mendis also accompanies a group of patients on an annual pilgrimage to Lourdes every year and explained the benefits experienced by the patients. 
 
Finally Victor told us about a fund-raising activity that he is doing with his colleague, neurosurgeon James Kellerman, who was a Body Talk guest earlier this year.
The pair of them are undertaking a 14 mile walk on 26 September to raise funds for the charity Back Care. They will be walking from the Health Centre in Chelmsford to Spire Hartswood Hospital.  Anyone is invited to join them on the route and lend support. 

Anyone can donate to the charity via the following link www.justgiving.com/pain-spineclinic
