About the Michael G. DeGroote Pain Clinic
Chronic Pain is a condition that affects roughly one in 5 Canadians. It involves a complex set of physical, cognitive, emotional, social and environmental factors. Chronic pain can disrupt your home life, relationships and ability to work. Many people who live with chronic pain are frustrated because they have not found a way to reduce their pain or manage their condition. The team at the Michael G. DeGroote Pain Clinic understands these challenges and provides world-class care for patients with chronic pain. The team’s multidisciplinary specialists are leaders in evidence-based practices, innovation and research.
We are an interdisciplinary team with expertise in the management and treatment of chronic pain. As leaders in innovation and evidence based practices, our team works in collaboration with the patient, their family and referral sources. Our goal is to support adaptive changes to improve daily functioning, productivity and overall quality of life.
Through exemplary care chronic pain patients will be empowered to improve their quality of life.
Why should I donate?
Providing leading-edge care and conducting research requires a significant investment to purchase important equipment and fund educational initiatives. In fact, the purchase of equipment is not funded by the government. Donor support is vital to making this all possible.
How your donation will help?
Since 2016, the clinic has grown from seeing 7,000 patient visits a year to 22,000. The generous support of donors like you enables the clinic to meet the ever-growing needs of chronic pain patients. Donors also support important medical research that is conducted by the highly skilled and experienced team at the clinic.
This team of Hamilton Health Sciences physicians and health care professionals also contribute knowledge to the larger pain community through publications and presentations, and they engage in ongoing quality improvement to enhance pain services for our patients. This work is made possible by the continued support of donors.
