York Pain Management

I studied medicine in Al-Fateh university in Tripoli, Libya which is also my birthplace. I was awarded a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery (MBChB) with distinction in 2007, and my overall ranking was the 8th in a class of about 500 graduates.I relocated to the UK in 2011 to pursue post-graduate training in Anaesthesia. I trained in the Yorkshire and Humber deanery (Leeds / Bradford school of Anaesthesia) where I rotated through different NHS trusts including the Leeds hospitals which are one of the largest teaching hospitals in Europe. I became a fellow of the royal college of anaesthetists (FRCA) in 2015 and obtained my certificate of completion of training (CCT) in Anaesthesia in 2019.

Part of my training in anaesthesia included about 2 years of specialising in pain management. I had first-hand experience of working alongside internationally renowned pain experts in the fields of neuromodulation and cancer pain. I became a Fellow of the faculty of pain medicine (FFPMRCA) in 2018.

I’m currently a consultant in Anaesthesia and pain management in York teaching hospitals NHS Trust (appointed in September 2019). I run weekly pain clinics alongside a dynamic multi-disciplinary team and perform interventions for various acute and chronic painful conditions I also provide Anaesthetic and peri-operative care for patients requiring various types of surgery.I hold an honorary teaching post (Honorary senior lecturer) in Hull-York medical school (HYMS). I also have academic and research interests. I’m the first author of several publications in international peer reviewed journals and I have presented studies in international meetings.

I’m bilingual and fully fluent in English and Arabic. In my free time I enjoy learning Spanish, learning how to play the guitar and practicing photography. I also enjoy doing calligraphy.
