Dr Christopher Woodgate is a pain and rehabilitation medicine specialist with a strong patient focus. He possesses both an acute awareness of the difficulties facing patients suffering from pain, and a broad understanding of the multiple strategies that can be used to assist them.
Dr Woodgate completed his medical degree at the University of Tasmania in 2008. He went on to complete training in rehabilitation in 2015 and pain management in 2017. Over this time he has developed a strong interest in the musculoskeletal rehabilitation approach, which in turn places a strong emphasis on a holistic patient-centred approach.
Further, he is also interested in the transition and prevention of acute to persistent pain.
Dr Woodgate currently holds a position at the Austin Hospital Pain Management Unit where he is involved in teaching at registrar and fellow level.
