Pain is a silent epidemic affecting 1 in 5 Australians. Patients referred to Victoria Pain Specialists have experienced pain for some considerable time. A detailed and comprehensive assessment is integral to the first consultation, resulting in the formulation of a Pain Management Plan. Our Pain Management Model takes a multifaceted approach, actively involving the patient in the Management Plan as well as close collaboration with referring medical colleagues.

Our interests include spinal pain, low back pain, head and neck pain, 'whiplash', sciatica, neuropathic pain and other chronic pain conditions including cervicogenic headaches, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and chronic post-surgical pain syndromes like post laminectomy back surgery syndrome and fibromyalgia.

Dr Simon Cohen is a Paediatrician as well as a Pain Specialist, with a special focus on caring for paediatric pain conditions.

We perform diagnostic and therapeutic pain interventions including medial branch nerve blocks, radiofrequency lesioning, epidural steroid injection, nerve root blocks (transforiminal epidural steroid injections), stellate ganglion blocks, joint blocks like C1-C2 blocks, facet blocks, sacroiliac blocks. We also practice neuromodulation techniques such as spinal cord stimulation.

Based at 27 Erin Street Richmond, we also have dedicated in house Psychology, Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Nursing staff forming our multidisciplinary team to offer a comprehensive and tailored treatment to our patients. Our interventional procedures are undertaken at Epworth Cliveden and Epworth Freemasons Day Procedure Centre.
