Professional Profile

Dr Richard Griffiths qualified from UCL in 1997, after delaying his training with a detour into the history of medicine. He then undertook anaesthetic and pain training in the South East, which culminated in a Consultant post in 2007. Interestingly, he saved his last training assignment until last, by undergoing emergency spinal surgery the very week he was meant to start as a Consultant. Since then, his career in anaesthesia and pain medicine has been enhanced with 8 years as the Training Director and Regional Advisor of South East Pain Training at the Royal College of Anaesthetists.

The following form the majority of Dr Griffith’s clinical practice:

  • Back pain and sciatica;
  • Neck pain and brachialgia;
  • Spinal intervention including injection therapy (epidurals, nerve injection, joint injections and radiofrequency denervation);
  • Neuropathic pain (Neuralgia);
  • Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome;
  • Fibromyalgia and widespread pain;
  • Visceral pain;
  • Post-surgical pain;
  • Complex analgesia management and Opioid management.
