Our physicians are committed to professional development, education and collaborations within the international spine medicine community. As such, we have developed our own independent research department to monitor our treatment outcomes and benchmark our performance. Compilations of these results have been published in leading industry peer-reviewed publications such as Spine, Neuromodulation, Medical Journal of Australia, Australian Family Physician and Pain Medicine.
Moreover, we frequently present our latest research findings at key international conferences for societies such as the World Institute of Pain (WIP), North American Neuromodulation Society (NANS), International Neuromodulation Society (INS) and International Spinal Intervention Society (ISIS). Current research efforts are focusing on improving spinal injection and radiofrequency neurotomy techniques, assessing patient outcomes after neuromodulation and other interventional pain management procedures and investigating classifications and referral patterns of pain. Many of these research programs are run in collaboration with higher education and allied health facilities.
In collaboration with other specialists in our field, the experienced physicians of MSC have run intensive workshops and training sessions on Pain Management, Lumbar Radiofrequency Neurotomy, Scientifically Diagnosing and Treating Low Back Pain, Neuromodulation training to Anaesthetists, Interventional Pain Physicians and Neurosurgeons, along with education evenings for General Practitioners and Specialty Physicians. Furthermore, we are training three medically qualified doctors in the field of Pain Management, and have supervised a PhD and two Honour students in projects relating to Pain Management.
Our in-house medical research doctoral personnel manages a number of international multi-centre randomised controlled clinical trials for conditions such as low back pain, sciatica and degenerative disc disorders. Together, these efforts clearly demonstrates our ongoing commitment to advancing and applying current scientific knowledge related to pain and disseminating relevant information to our patients, colleagues, and the public.
