As we announced earlier this month, Fieldfisher are proud to be presenting Fifty Shades of Pain – a conference focusing on major issues associated with pain, including pain management and the dilemma of separating physical and psychological pain symptomology.

As the conference approaches, we will be profiling some of the people speaking at the conference, starting with Charles Willis-Owen, Consultant Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgeon, at City Sports Clinic & Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Trust, who is giving a talk on Musculoskeletal pain, differentiation between types, origins, treatments and prognosis. His talk takes a look at the different presentations of musculoskeletal pain, and what it entails for the client and the clinician treating it. It will cover the different categories of injury, range of prognoses and the different options for treatment. Real life case studies will be used to show how musculoskeletal pain impacts on patients, also how they live through orthopaedic surgical intervention.

Charles is a Trauma and Orthopaedic surgeon and knee specialist. He benefited from a first class medical education at Oxford University between 1994 and 2000. He went on to work as a junior doctor in the Oxford region, then moved to the prestigious North West Thames training program to specialise in orthopaedics. He is dual qualified in both orthopaedic surgery and sports medicine and is both a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons and a Member of the Faculty of Sports and Exercise Medicine. Charles was awarded a year long fellowship at Sportsmed SA the top sports clinic in South Australia. In this extraordinary year he learned from some of the worlds best sports knee and hip surgeons and has adopted many of the techniques used in Australia’s most successful sports medicine clinic. He completed his training in 2011 and spent his first six months of consultancy performing major trauma surgery at St Mary’s hospital in central London before moving out to Kent where he currently performs knee, hip and sports surgery. Charles carries out a wide range of medico-legal work in both personal injury and clinical negligence and really enjoys the intellectual stimulation and interaction with solicitors and barristers.
