Acute Pain Management
Advanced acute pain management techniques are commonly utilised by Group Anaesthetists to make patients comfortable after surgery, injury or during illness. These techniques are provided at all the hospitals in Hobart and may also require specialised nursing care in a High Dependency or Critical Care Unit, whilst under the care of an anaesthetist.
Chronic Pain Management
Dr Rob Paton provides a specific Chronic Pain Management Service which involves consultations in hospital or at the rooms at 303 Macquarie Street. This service is based on referral from a specialist. Various implantable devices and advanced techniques are available in order to help patients better cope with chronic or cancer pain.
