Dr Usamah Jannoun, MD FFSEM
Consultant in Sport & Exercise Medicine
Dr Jannoun treats Back Pain and Musculoskeletal conditions and injuries. His extended consultation times (1 hour new patient, 30 minutes follow up) allow a thorough clinical assessment (and ultrasound examination of the area of injury if required) and subsequent discussions of his findings. His patients have often expressed their gratitude in his mannerism, professionalism, and patient involvement in the consultation process. He engages his patients in the discussons around best and latest treatments available and uses a step-ladder evidence -based approach.
In light of the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic, his practice is in line with current guidance from the Royal College of Physicians, UK Government and Public Health England, and The Faculty of Pain Medicine.
