Need a doctor in UK for Lidocaine injections

Hi, six months after my left-side thoracotomy I was yesterday told by my surgeon (USA) that I need to get Lidocaine intercostal nerve-block injections for a persistent pain issue I'm having. Here in my country, Cyprus, though, it's impossible to find someone who has experience in injecting Lidocaine on the thorax. So, my second option is UK, but still I would need to find someone specialized on this type of nerve-block. Any recommendations?

Sorry, but I was stumped when I first read this.  Having had time to think about it, something did come to me.  In case you have not found anyone yet, maybe you could contact doctors that you have worked with in the UK in the past and ask them for a referral.  Or look up the website of the hospital where you were treated for your heart condition (or other hospitals) and see if the hospital has a pain management department.  Good luck.

Hello Prodromos. How are you?

A couple of Google searches (for example) will yield results:

Interventional Radiology UK

Interventional orthopedics UK

This sort of thing: Searching for  Interventional Radiology UK, Interventional Orthopaedics UK, Interventional Pain Medicine UK, will give you ideas.
