Dr Navid Amirabadi

Pain Management, Palliative Care

Dr Amirabadi started his post graduate training in emergency medicine and worked overseas for 2 years as an emergency physician before moving to Australia in 2004. He then completed three specialist training in Rural General Practice, Palliative Medicine and Pain Medicine and also completed a fellowship in Intervention al Pain Practice across several hospitals in Western Australia, New South Wales and Queensland.

He strongly believes that each patient is unique and therefore it’s critical to attentively listen to the patient simply because the patient often gives better clues than anyone else as what the problem is. He is an advocate for using a collaborative multidisciplinary approach via physical and psychological education and empowering, medication optimisation, interventional techniques including but not limited to diagnostic blocks, radiofrequency treatments and spinal cord and peripheral stimulators and targeted delivery instruments to improve the quality of life of his patients.

Being a keen aviator, he tries to combine his hobby as a pilot and his profession as doctor and to fly to rural and regional areas from time to time and offer his skills and abilities as a specialist to minimise his patients’ sufferings and help them to have the quality of life they deserve, keeping this old saying in mind that “Though pain might be inevitable in life, suffering is optional”.

He visits Sydney South West Private Hospital and Campbelltown private hospital and consults at in Campbeltown and Parramatta.
