Regarded as a pre-eminent Chronic Pain Consultant, with a medical career that spans Ireland, the UK, Australia and the US, Dr. Mubarak first qualified as a medical house officer in 1996. Previously holding a NHS practice at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham, England, she currently works in London as a full-time Consultant in Chronic Pain Management and Anaesthesia.

Moreover, Dr Mubarak strongly believes in giving her patients clear, concise, and accurate information, and to that end, she is always ready to answer patients’ questions and concerns. She explains everything in easy to understand layman’s terms, thereby ensuring that patients have a full understanding of their condition, as well as any treatments that they may be having under The London Pain Clinic’s ‘Holistic Personalised Treatment Plan’. Indeed, Dr Mubarak’s mission is to play an important role in offering world-class care to everyone who is in need of comprehensive pain management.
Dr. Mubarak’s special interests include: pelvic pain (which comprises endometriosis, prostate and pelvic inflammatory disease-related pain, penile pain and vulvodynia pain; costochondritis, non-cardiac chest pain, post-shingles pain, cancer related pain, and post-surgical neuropathic knee and abdominal pain treatment.

Dr. Mubarak trained at the renowned College of Anaesthetists in Ireland; and in 2014, went on to complete her Anaesthesia and Basic Pain Training. Upon completing the latter, she joined the Pain Fellowship Training Program at Australia’s Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, in Sydney. Of note, Dr Mubarak’s training in both countries, included applying a holistic approach to chronic pain management and rehabilitation.
Sydney Teaching University Hospital is classed as a ordinal pain referral point for treating women who suffer from pelvic pain. To that end, Dr Mubarak joined the former in order to attain a fellowship by working as part of a pain team of neurology specialists.This empowered her with a wealth of experience in managing patients with neurology disorders and long-term pain issues, and included those with post-stroke headaches and pain, and multiple sclerosis. In addition to the aforementioned, this special training also allowed Dr Mubarak to study the difficulties of prescribing patients with high doses of opioids and methadone to control their severe pain, thus enabling her to broaden her understanding of pain medication management.
Driven to expand her pain management skills with more specialised training, during her fellowship program in Australia, Dr Mubarak also worked with Drug and Alcohol consultants. After this, she decided to specialise in cancer pain and neuromodulation. To that end, in 2016, she took part in another pain fellowship program, this time in Leeds, England. Then in 2017, her quest for optimum pain management took her to the US, where after further studies, she was awarded the FIPP (Fellowship of Interventional Pain Practice Examination).
