So, Why Choose MPC?
Dr. Mark Gostine, MD and Dr. Fred Davis, MD founded Michigan Pain Consultants, PC (MPC) in 1984 with a philosophy that: “Chronic pain should be treated like other chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, asthma or congestive heart failure. Chronic pain requires chronic treatment. The goal of treatment is to optimize management of the pain, as opposed to curing the pain.”
Today, that philosophy has grown from a single hospital-based clinic to several office-based Pain Management Centers. Fourteen physician pain specialists and a team of specially trained clinical staff offer pain care that’s close to home all around the West Michigan area.
MPC’s Philosophy on Care and Treatment
At Michigan Pain Consultants, we know chronic pain. We know that chronic pain is a unique individual experience that cannot be objectively measured like many other medical conditions. We know that the effects of chronic pain extend beyond the physical symptoms and can impact all aspects of your life.
We believe that understanding your pain and treating your pain go hand in hand. We believe that effective pain management involves more than just treating a symptom. It requires a multidisciplinary team of highly trained specialists who not only understand the pathology of your pain, but also understand the underlying symptoms that accompany your chronic pain.
At Michigan Pain Consultants, we are that team of highly trained specialists. We are Michigan’s leading and longest-established multi-disciplinary pain management practice, specializing in the expert diagnosis and treatment of chronic pain conditions. Our physician led team of interdisciplinary pain specialists develops patient centered treatment options integrating interventional and complimentary medicine with onsite physical therapy and behavioral medicine to comprehensively address each patient’s individual needs.
Ketamine Infusion Therapy is a huge breakthrough in helping patients with chronic pain, mood disorders, and depression. And Regenerative Medicine, such as Bone Marrow Treatment, has altered the course of treating patients with a variety of chronic pain conditions.
Ketamine infusion therapy, directed by Dr. Mark Gostine, is for anyone with pain that isn’t well controlled with injections, nerve blocks, or prescription pain medication. It is also used for PTSD, mood disorders and depression that has been resistant to treatment from ECT and medications.
Regenerative Medicine, spearheaded by Dr. Eric Kozfkay, DO, explains: “Bone marrow contains the body’s highest concentration of adult stem cells. These stems cells are known as the body’s repair kit as they have the unique ability to replicate themselves for use in any tissue or organ found throughout the body. Bone marrow aspirate concentrate has shown to be effective in the treatment of a variety of pain conditions, including: joint degeneration, sacroilitis, knee, hip and shoulder injury, osteoarthritis, cartilage injury, tendon injury, ligament injury, facet joint injury and disc injury.”
