Meet Dr. O'Keeffe

Dr Declan O'Keeffe

Fellow of the Faculty of Anaesthesiology,
Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (FFARCSI)

Hello and welcome to my clinic.


From a young age I have been acutely aware of the devastation chronic pain can wreak upon an individual and their family.


My passion for this area of medicine lies in watching my own father's life-long battle with chronic pain.

One of the key developments in the world of pain medicine is the move away from pharmacotherapy & rehabilitation to treating pain with the assistance of cutting-edge medical devices.


Since 1990 I’m proud to say that I have played a leading role bringing these treatments to Ireland (and the World) with many firsts, including the latest High-Frequency Spinal Cord Stimulation (HF10).

My goal is to give my patients previously unheard of levels of pain relief - with a minimal requirement for medication. 


I want you to live your life again.
