Dr Selwyn Dexter has over 25 years’ experience in general medical practice and family medicine treating an extensive range of both common and diverse medical conditions, both privately and within the National Health Service. He is a Honorary Consultant Physician to the National Hospital of Neurology and Neurosurgery providing acupuncture services to the Hospital's private clinic in Queen Square, London.
Dr Dexter is available as a second opinion for difficult medical problems and diagnoses. I have built up an extensive network of consultant medical and surgical specialists for ongoing advice when necessary.
Dr Dexter has a specialist interest in migraine and recurrent head pain having been attached to a specialist migraine clinic at St Bartholomew's Hospital for 16 years. As well as seeing migraine patients he has carried out research making novel discoveries and publishing original papers, including the British Medical Journal.
He has a particular interest in headache related to sexual activity. The initial migraine consultation requires a detailed history to elicit triggers and possible contributory factors to their causation.
Dr Dexter has been a fully accredited member of the British Medical Acupuncture Society (BMAS) since 1995. Acupuncture can be a valuable treatment in migraine and other head ache as well as general joint and musculoskeletal pain. It can also help with gynaecological symptoms, including menstrual and pelvic pain, endometriosis and is commonly used to assist fertility issues, and it can also help some skin, allergy and eye conditions such as keratoconus, an inflammatory condition affecting the cornea.
Dr Dexter is also recognised by most major medical insurance companies for acupuncture.Diseases, Medical Tests and Treatments
