Baddow Hospital unveils dedicated pain management theatre
BADDOW Hospital, the private independent hospital which opened less than three years ago, has unveiled the county’s first dedicated pain management theatre.
The new theatre reflects the increasing amount of work the hospital is carrying out in the field of pain management, resulting in a recently awarded contract by leading community healthcare provider, Anglian Community Enterprise (ACE), to treat its patients from the north of the county.
Mr Philip Robarts, Medical Director at Baddow Hospital in West Hanningfield Road, Great Baddow, said: “This new dedicated theatre has been created to deal with nothing but patients with severe pain management issues. Baddow have invested £70,000 alone in a new Siemens Arcadia Varic Image Guidance C-Arm which optimises the speed and clarity of the radiological images taken by our CR imaging digital x-ray machine. Once the images have been taken, the C-Arm is used to deliver pain-relief injections with precision accuracy.
“This latest technology will complement our Radio Frequency Denervation equipment as a means of effectively interrupting pain signals and providing lasting pain relief. Severe back pain makes up about 75 per cent of the cases we see but knee, elbow and jaw issues can also be addressed. ”
Baddow Hospital’s pain management service is available to private and referred NHS patients.
Simba Chandiwana, Integrated Care Manager at ACE, said: “Our community-based pain team works with thousands of patients in a community setting, helping alleviate their pain issues, encouraging self-management and psychological biased strategies. As part of this overall package of care, an x-ray guided injection in a day-case setting could be an option for some patients. We looked at the facilities at Baddow Hospital and they are very good indeed. We look forward to working with the team at Baddow Hospital as they help an anticipated 1,000 of our patients during the coming year.”
Baddow Hospital has been developed by a team of specialist surgeons and architects who shared the vision of establishing a specialist state of the art day case hospital excelling in patient care. In a short space of time, the hospital has built a reputation for offering the highest quality, often ground-breaking, treatments for an ever-increasing range of medical issue.
