Dr Deane Halfpenny is a Consultant in Musculoskeletal Pain Medicine with a special interest in spinal pain and injury. His areas of expertise include low back pain, whiplash injury, neuropathic pain and complex regional pain disorder.

Career to Date

I graduated from the University of Witwatersrand in South Africa in 1990 (MBBCh) and completed my early medical training in the UK. I then went on to specialise over a six year period in anaesthesia, with 2 years research as a lecturer at St Bartholomew’s Hospital. Subsequently I went on to complete an additional year of training in advanced pain medicine leading to accreditation with the faculty of pain medicine obtaining the FFPMRCA.

I became a consultant in 2001 at St Bartholomew’s and the Homerton Hospital in London. I was a clinical lead in the establishment of the City and Hackney Back Pain Service, where I have continued to provide clinical input into the management of back and neck pain. I work closely with exercise therapists running joint clinics allowing me to have unique understanding of pain and movement. I have set up interventional services in the management of pain for the NHS as well as the private sector and have gained invaluable experience in the field. I have published as well as lectured at international meetings and seminar in the field of pain medicine.

My areas of special interest include the following

  • Acute back, neck and shoulder pain.
  • Chronic spinal pain.
  • Myofascial pain syndromes
  • Neuropathic pain
  • Whiplash injury
  • Complex regional pain syndrome
  • Repetitive strain injury

Having been a keen gymnast competing at a national level in South Africa and lately a club cyclist I have a special interest in the management of pain in the sporting arena.

I have regular outpatient clinics at TLOC as well as intervention lists at the Princess Grace Hospital.

I am very satisfied of the services received from Dr. Deane Halfpenny!
