Dr.  Adnan Al-Kaisy

Dr Al-Kaisy is Clinical Lead of the world-renowned Pain Management and Neuromodulation Centre at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS trust.
A leading expert in Pain Management, Dr Al-Kaisy has extensive experience in working toward the advancement of electrical neuromodulation techniques within this specialty.
Dr Al-Kaisy led the first multicentre and multinational study on the safety and efficacy of 10 kHz SCS in the management of Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS). He has subsequently clinically pioneered the use of this novel therapy in the management of different chronic pain conditions including the feasibility study on chronic back patients without prior surgery. He has successfully designed ground-breaking research including a randomized double blind placebo control study examining different frequency in the management of FBSS. He is the innovator of a number of techniques including Transgrade dorsal root ganglion stimulation using monopolar electrical stimulation.
