Dr Kiran Tippur

 

Dr Kiran Tippur is  available for consultation with patients suffering from chronic pain at Wyndham Specialists Consulting Suites.

I work as a Specialist in Anaesthesia and Pain Management at Ballarat Health Services, SJOGH Ballarat and also consult at Ballarat and Grampians Private Practice.  I practice all aspects of pain medicine, which includes acute pain, chronic pain, cancer pain and interventional pain medicine.  My special interests include chronic spinal pain, neuropathic pain and neuromodulation in pain management.  I am also a strong believer in the bio-psycho-social approach to pain management in a multidisciplinary setting.  I work with a team of physiotherapists, clinical psychologists, occupational therapists and clinical nurse practitioners.

Originally from India, I completed my medical training before moving to the United Kingdom where I completed my specialist training in Pain Medicine and Anaesthesia at the prestigious Glasgow and West of Scotland School of Anaesthesia.  I worked as a consultant in Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine at Colchester University Hospital, Essex in the UK before moving to Australia to pursue a Pain Fellowship.  I completed my Pain Fellowship at the Alfred hospital and the Barwon Health Services and gained further experience in cancer pain management at the Peter MacCallum Institute.  I also hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Pain Medicine from the University of Leicester, U.K.

Along with offering consultation to patients, I am also able to provide advanced pain treatments which may involve

 

  • Nerve Blocks such as: selective nerve root blocks (TFE), epidural and caudal injections, coeliac plexus blocks and sympathetic blocks.
  • Joint Injections including: SI joint and facet joint injections for back pain including Radiofrequency ablation.
