    About

    Dr Nikolic has graduated medicine in 1992 and has been working as a Consultant in Pain Medicine since 2006. He works both privately and on the NHS at St Bartholomew's and the Royal London Hospitals. 

    He covers a wide range of interests, including spintal pain management, myofascial pain syndromes, neuromodulation/spinal cord stimulation, complex regional pain syndromes, headaches and neuropathic pain. 

    Dr Nikolic provides treatments that are tailored for every patient and rely on a holistic approach including interventional pain management, analgesia optimisation and comprehensive rehabilitation and psychological support when appropriate. He is currently working closely with a team of specialists who are experts in their fields (physiotherapists, osteopaths, vocational rehabilitation specialists/occupational therapists and clinical psychologists).

    Dr Nikolic believes that it is highly important to provide a service of the highest clinical standard that is firmly founded on the principles of evidence-based medicine. He is regularly involved in teaching and research in order to keep his professional knowledge and skills up to date.

    It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.

    Serge is a Fantastic consultant. He is clearly kind, caring and strives for the best possible outcome. Serge demonstrates an attitude that far exceeds the other consultants I have seen on my journey to a full recovery. We have recently tried something diagnostic (nerve block) and with patience it has been somewhat successful. I know that Serge will take the time to carefully consider the next step and ensure that I progress to a pain free life. I look forward to continuing to work with Serge and would highly recommend him to others.
