Dr Kinshuki Jain is a recognized name in the field of pain and supportive care backed with vast experience in pain and palliative medicine that she gained at the department of Oncoanaesthesia, pain and palliative medicine at AIIMS. She has a passion for alleviation of both acute and chronic pain and help patients attain best possible quality of life at every stage of their treatment. She believes that it is the right of every patient to be pain-free and have an adequate symptom control -  “Cancer does not mandate suffering in pain!”

She has a huge armamentarium of modalities and approaches for evidence-based treatment which give best results for the patients. Few of the various pain management modalities she specializes in for adequate acute and chronic pain redressal include-

  • Medications- opioids, cannabinoids and adjuvants
  • MIPSI- Minimally invasive pain and spine interventions- both ultrasound-guided and fluoroscopy- guided
  • Dry and wet needling- A modality extremely beneficial in handling myofascial pain, scar pain, post- operative pain and rehabilitation, post radiation pain and contractures, post- mastectomy pain, CRPS … to name a few. These conditions are very difficult to be managed with medications and conventional pain interventions alone.
