COLOMBO (News1st): Sri Lanka’s first pain unit was declared open in Colombo on Wednesday by a former consultant at UK’s National Health Service.

The London Pain Management Center will offer physiotherapy services meeting international standards, and residential facilities for overseas and outstation patients.

Armed forces personnel and local sportsmen and sportswomen from less privileged backgrounds will be treated free of charge.

“Why I named it London was because I wanted to give the same standard in London,” Dr. Namal Senasinghe, a consultant in pain medicine said.

He assured that services that are equivalent or higher in standard than pain centres in the UK would be offered through the unit.

The pain center established by Dr Senasinghe was declared open by Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa following religious observances.
