Our Mission

To offer evidence based, empathetic, humane, individualised pain management.

Our Vision

Medical science has progressed over the years and with the advancements in the medical field, it’s inhumane to let people suffer in pain. It is important to offer adequate and appropriate pain relief be it child birth or cancer pain. Dr. Saravanan aims to educate and address misconceptions and taboos around pain. His vision is to destigmatise myths and shame around seeking pain relief so as to reduce suffering of those in pain.

Medication Management

Our Pain Centre understands the use of opioids for pain management and is highly scrutinized by many professionals in the field of medicine.

While we prefer to reduce or eliminate a patient’s pain through interventional procedures, we acknowledge pain medications are a viable treatment option for some people. As a result, our pain management specialists utilize a number of minimally invasive procedures and complementary therapies in conjunction with pain medications to ensure complete relief. Patients experience a reprieve from their pain from an array of treatment options, including but not limited to, steroid injections, acupuncture, physical therapy, and more. 

Interventional Procedures

Interventional procedures at the Windermere Pain Centre help diagnose and treat chronic pain conditions. After receiving a comprehensive evaluation from a Pain Centre physician, patients are given recommendations for treatments that may be effective for their pain. Depending on the patient’s condition and symptoms, a pain management specialist may suggest a steroid injection, nerve block, or minimally invasive spinal procedure. Patients can review all of the treatments offered at the Pain Centre when they visit our Services section.
