Dr. Neil Collighan
Speciality: Consultant Anaesthetist and Pain Consultant
The management of pain using a combined approach of medical, psychological and interventional methods.
+ Pain management medicine
Dr Collighan graduated from Edinburgh University Medical School in 1996. He has spent the last 13 years undergoing training and research in anaesthesia, intensive care and chronic pain management.
Higher specialist training in pain management was undertaken in the Yorkshire School of Anaesthesia. In July 2009 he was appointed as a consultant for the East Kent University NHS Foundation Trust in anaesthesia, intensive care and chronic pain management. Dr Collighan’s current commitments are spread between the QEQM Hospital, Margate and the Kent and Canterbury Hospital, Canterbury.
Dr Collighan has been trained in the more complex interventional procedures including spinal cord stimulation, intrathecal drug delivery devices and intradiscal therapies. He believes that all pain management strategies should be a combined medical, interventional and psychological approach to ensure optimum results and patient well-being.
