Dr Nigel Kellow is a consultant pain management specialist, and has a special interest in treating patients suffering from degenerative spinal diseases (which includes conditions such as herniated discs, spinal stenosis and vertebral body fractures). He is furthermore focused on the treatment of neuropathic pain.
Dr Kellow provides palliative care and treatments for patients suffering from pains associated with cancer. He is highly specialised in the use of image-guided interventional procedures for painful spinal, neurological and skeletal conditions.
Owing to both his extensive medical experience and interest in wider extracurricular pursuits, Dr Kellow classifies his patients into three categories:
i) patients who have decided that they would not like surgery.
ii) patients who have been advised that surgery is not the best course of action.
iii) patients who have not reacted as well as they would have liked surgery or who still have pain issues post-surgery.
Dr Kellow received his medical degree from the Royal Free and went on to complete postgraduate studies in Oxford, Cambridge, Paris and London. In 1996, following the completion of his training, Dr Kellow became an NHS consultant at Barts, where he subsequently spent 8 years. During his time as a consultant at Barts, Dr Kellow completed an MBA with a focus on healthcare management at the London Business School.
Beyond this, Dr Kellow has a number of related medical interests outside of clinical medicine. In particular, he uses his considerable hybrid experience to help a number of health technology businesses.
Personal treatment philosophy: "People who come to see me have often seen a number of other specialists and are not only often in a lot of pain but they also often have a number of secondary problems. I spend a lot of time explaining problems to patients and covering all treatment options. It’s a great feeling to be able to help people out of pain."
