The Pain Centre of Excellence is the Gold Coast’s latest pain management centre. Our plan for treating chronic pain is science based and involves a multi-disciplinary approach to managing chronic pain.
The persistent pain program is new to the Gold Coast and we’re very proud to bring it to you. Anyone who has suffered pain for more than 3 months can apply for this chronic pain management program. We understand how persistent pain can debilitate and lead to depression, social isolation and sleep loss. For Gold Coast chronic pain sufferers the Persistent Pain Program represents a multi-disciplinary approach to managing their pain that is scientifically based.
We treat the whole person, with a team based approach that brings in physiotherapy, psychology, occupational therapists, pain specialists…and the most important person, YOU.
The Pain Centre of Excellence operates from Spendelove Private Hospital. Spendelove is conveniently located in Southport, close to therapeutic facilities and medical specialists. The hospital is one of Gold Coast best private hospitals, with 24 rooms, each with a private ensuite.
Our program operates as either day patient or inpatient. Day patients can visit Spendelove for 3-5 hours at a time. Inpatients attend the hospital for 2 weeks. This makes is a viable option for those who don’t live on the Gold Coast, say northern NSW down to Byron Bay.
The Persistent Pain Program is fully covered by private insurance. We charge Gold Coast residents no surcharge on top of what is covered by private health insurance. We want to make this program accessible to as many Gold Coast pain suffers as possible. Your only out of pocket expenses are optional expenses, such as access to television or perhaps wifi. If you’re a Gold Coast pain sufferer who may be covered by Workcover or DVA please contact us, as you may be fully covered also.
The Pain Excellence Centre is a team based approach lead by pain specialists Dr Heide Feberwee and Dr Dionne Litton. Specialists in Pain Management and Physical Rehabilitation, these doctors bring a level of experience and knowledge to The Pain Centre Of Excellence. The team comprises the specialists doctors, allied health team, physiotherapists, hydro-therapists and psychologists.
