Dr Zbigniew M Kirkor is an extensively trained and highly skilled consultant in anaesthesia and pain medicine.
As a specialist in interventional pain management and regenerative orthopaedics, Dr Kirkor provides patients with relief from spine pain, musculoskeletal pain, neck instability and discogenic pain. He is one of the few specialists to provide platelet-rich plasma injections for the treatment of neck instability and cervicogenic headaches. What's more, he has developed his own original treatment method for degenerated discs, involving regenerative injection and pulsed radiofrequency stimulation.
Dr Kirkor graduated from the medical university in Gdansk (Poland). In the following years, he obtained his PhD in 1996 and achieved a successful career as a physician and academic. In 2005, he relocated to the UK and practised at several hospitals, including the Princess Alexandra Hospital where he set up a chronic pain clinic. In 2010, he became the clinical lead for pain services at the Shrewsbury & Telford Hospital NHS Trust and remained so for over ten years.
In 2018, Dr Kirkor founded the Algocells clinic with his friend and colleague Dr Martynas Juozaitis. They created this clinic in affiliation with Regenexx, the renowned pioneering regenerative orthopaedic organisation from the United States. Algocells focuses on regenerative medicine (stem cells and platelet-rich plasma) for musculoskeletal conditions and spine pain, and is the first Regenexx service in the UK.
He is also an experienced medicolegal expert witness in his area of expertise and has provided medicolegal services since 2011. Furthermore, Dr Kirkor is involved in regenerative orthopaedic research and his work has been published in scientific peer-reviewed medical journals. He has also presented his research at numerous conferences.
