Professor Joanna Zakrzewska, an international expert on trigeminal neuralgia, runs the UK’s only multidisciplinary clinic dedicated to helping patients manage their chronic facial pain. Professor Zakrzewska, who studied medicine and dentistry and is the only non-anaesthetist fellow of the Faculty of Pain Medicine, said: “Chronic pain needs to be managed using medical and psychological methods and we draw on the expertise of colleagues from the RLHIM ( Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine). The environment there is pleasant and we can achieve a more holistic approach which is often the key when trying to manage pain.” http://www.bbk.ac.uk/art-history/research/visualising-illness/project-people/deborah-padfield
