Pekin Hospital is pleased to announce the opening of the Pekin Pain Management Center, a balanced pain management center, on the hospital campus at 600 S. 13th Street, Suite K. The clinic will be staffed by Arek Grochowski, M.D., a fellowship trained pain management specialist. To make an appointment with Dr. Grochowski, please call (309) 353-0721.
The pain center will diagnose and create individualized treatment plans for patients based on a number of considerations, including the cause and level of pain. Acute and chronic pain conditions treated at Pekin Pain Management Center include neck and back pain, headaches, fibromyalgia, chronic pelvic pain, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS), nerve damage, as well as pain associated with arthritis, muscle spasms and shingles.
Dr. Grochowski is fellowship trained in pain medicine at Christ Hospital & University of Cincinnati and is a graduate of Medical Academy of Gdansk in Gdansk, Poland. He completed his residency at Christ Hospital & University of Cincinnati.
“Millions of people suffer from pain that affects their daily life, and they don’t know how to begin treating it,” says Dr. Grochowski. “We provide some of the most advanced treatments available today for acute and chronic pain—treatments that are more tolerable and less invasive than in the past. Pain management is proven to get people back to their everyday lives.”
“We are excited to offer this new service to the Pekin area,” says Pekin Hospital CEO Bob J. Haley. “A balanced pain management program not only keeps our patients healthy, but also makes our entire community safer.”
