Description

This year's BSOM Winter Meeting on the theme of Facial Pain promises to be an interesting and educational day, with speakers from a variety of specialties.

In addition to the plenary sessions, and oral presentations, this year we are inviting delegates to submit facial pain cases for discussion in the Role of the MDT session. If you have a case that you think may be of interest, or poses a diagnostic or treatment dilemma, and would like to it discuss at the meeting, please e-mail a brief summary to emma.hayes1@nhs.net (please note we cannot reply to cases on an individual basis).

Professor J Zakrzewska BDS, MB BChir, MD, FDSRCS, FFDRCSI, FFPM RCA, FHEA has been the Facial Pain lead consultant at Eastman Dental Hospital since April 2007 and is an Hon. Professor at UCL. After obtaining dental ( King's College London) and medical (University of Cambridge) degrees and specialist training in oral medicine Professor J Zakrzewska gained an MD in trigeminal neuralgia and a personal chair in facial pain. She held an academic post at the dental school at Queen Mary, London for 10 years before moving to EDH. She was the first non-anaesthetist to become a member of the Faculty of Pain Medicine. She has written four books and contributed chapters to 15 books, and written over 100 peer-reviewed papers, as well as lecturing nationally and internationally.

Mr Ludvic Zrinzo completed undergraduate medical studies in Malta, before moving to London to pursue a career in Neurosurgery. He was awarded an MSc in Clinical Neuroscience with Distinction from the UCL Institute of Neurology, London, before embarking on Neurosurgical training in London. Current interests include the surgical management of chronic neurological and psychiatric disease, chronic pain, and headache (trigeminal autonomic cephalalgia). Mr Zrinzo's research interests have been directed towards continued improvement in the surgical care of patients undergoing deep brain stimulation with particular emphasis on improving safety, accuracy and efficacy of surgery. He is the author of numerous peer-reviewed publications, abstracts and several book chapters and his work has received several international awards.

Dr Clare Maddocks is a Clinical Psychologist, working as part of the multi-disciplinary Facial Pain Team at EDH, carrying out assessments and providing pain management interventions for patients on an individual and group basis. Interventions draw on a range of psychological theories including Cognitive Behavioural Theory (CBT), Mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
