Treatment of chronic pain

The Gold Clinic is a specialist clinic where we help patients with chronic pain conditions and aching joints. Pain relief is achieved by implantating tiny 24-karat gold beads around the sore joints. This technique is called gold bead implantation.

We have been using this method since 1996, making us the most experienced clinic in Europe.
