The Thoracic Outlet Syndrome Centre of Excellence (TOSCOE®) held at The Cherington Practice provides diagnosis and co-ordinated care for over 100 patients a year with TOS. Rob Patterson and his team have had an interest in the management of all forms of TOS for many years. Encompassing a multidisciplinary approach to this challenging condition we have developed close relationships with diagnostic and interventional radiologists, pain management clinicians, surgeons and other specialists.
We provide care for all ages including for example the young teenage athlete through to the more elderly patient who experiences symptoms of TOS amongst many other health issues.
We uniquely offer a diagnostic scalene block service for the diagnosis of TOS as well as Botox injections for its management through our interventional radiology pathway.
Our specialist physiotherapy treatment programme, entitled ‘The Patterson Method’, brings together the most effective treatments for NTOS identified through the years and from around the world.
We have and continue to build links to surgeons with an interest in the management of TOS all over the UK and within specialist units in the USA.
Our care for patients with TOS includes the use of questionnaires as used by high volume TOS clinics as well as providing long-term follow-up for those who have been through our recovery protocol.
