Patrick Yu MD, FRCPC

Dr. Patrick Yu joined CHANGEpain in February 2017.

He is a Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Anesthesiology at University of BC.   His clinical experience includes 27 years of practice in clinical anesthesia and perioperative medicine in the Fraser Health Health Authority at the Royal Columbian and Eagle Ridge Hospitals, and the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority, at Vancouver General and UBC Hospitals.  He has had a variety of clinical interests including Trauma, Cardiac Anesthesia, Perioperative Medicine, and Regional Anesthesia. 

After holding a variety of positions engaged in clinical practice, departmental management, as well as provincial and national medical politics and negotiations, he has fully transitioned to focus on chronic pain practice at CHANGEpain.

Patrick is delighted at the opportunity to use his experience and skills to help chronic pain patients to decrease their pain, but more importantly reduce their disability associated with their pain.  He will be providing individual consultations, myofascial release using myoActivation, Group Medical Visits with a focus on Pain Neuroscience Education, infusion therapy, and is undergoing further training in ultrasound guided pain procedures to enhance the services at CHANGEpain.
