Dr. Andreas Goebel


Andreas Goebel was born and raised in Wiesbaden/Germany, and trained in Anaesthesia and Pain Medicine in both Germany and the UK, and in post-trauma immunology in Boston/US. He was appointed Consultant in Pain Medicine at the Liverpool/UK Walton Centre Hospital in 2007 and Reader (Associate Professor) at the University of Liverpool in 2016.

Andreas’ research has focused on the role of the adaptive immune system in causing chronic pain. He first proposed that ‘unexplained’ chronic pains may be caused by non-destructive, non-inflammatory, ‘functional’ IgG autoantibodies and he first suggested the use of passive transfer experimental approaches to investigate this, resulting in the establishment of several new models and clinical immune modulation approaches.

Andreas sees patients at the Walton Centre Hospital in Liverpool in secondary and tertiary care outpatient clinics, Pain Management Program assessment clinics, and in operation theatres for neuromodulation trials.
