MPPC is a one stop treatment for all kinds of pain. We do Physical therapy, Pain medications and Interventional pain management procures all in one place. All pain procedures are done with C arm (fluoroscopy) at the clinic. You don’t have to go anywhere for most of your pain problems.
In most cases, spine surgery is intended to remediate pain by fixing its source. But spine surgery is risky, can cause new pain, is inappropriate for 90% of patients or may fail to provide any relief. Pain killers, for their part, merely mask the pain, can cause health problems and too often provide no relief. Our minimally invasive treatments can usually fix the problem or effectively interrupt the pain cycle, providing proven treatment alternatives… and the hope these patients need.

A COMPLETE RANGE OF EFFECTIVE NONSURGICAL SOLUTIONS.
The good news for your patients isn’t simply that they have alternatives. In fact, they have many alternatives, thanks to Dr. Wahi ’s full range of image-guided interventional spine procedures, which include:
An advanced medical procedure used to reduce swelling and pain in and around the neck and lower back areas. Most individuals report less pain and increased mobility over days, weeks or months.
This procedure lessens pain due to inflammation, damage and nerve impingement to small joints in the back and neck. Patients who experience muscle spasms or have their backs suddenly go out may benefit from this treatment.
This decreases neural pain resulting from injury, dysfunction or illness. Patients with shingles, sympathetic reflex dystrophy and complex regional pain syndrome may be good candidates for this procedure.
Spinal Cord Stimulation
Using a device that transmits electrical impulses directly onto spinal nerves, this process helps heal back, arm and leg pain. This could assist people with degenerative disc disease or nerve root syndrome.
Trigger Point Injections
Injecting a local anesthetic into fibrous trigger-point tissue in spastic muscles inactivates the trigger point and alleviates pain. Sustained relief is usually achieved with a brief course of treatment.
Selective nerve root blocks
Injecting an anesthetic-and steroid solution into a specific nerve root also blocks pain and helps determine its source.
Knee and Shoulder joint injections
Injecting the anesthetic and corticosteroids the inflammation can be reduced and combined with physical therapy can reduce and avert the unnecessary surgeries
Oral Medications and Physical Therapy are also used to treat pain.
This pain center is one of the best I have seen. Ana and Debbie are wonderful persons to talk to. If you are sincere in controlling your pain, this is the place to be. Dr Wahi is compassionate and sincere in his approach to treat you with minimal medications.

In November of 2002, I moved to Chicago, IL. I had 5 back surgeries and a neck surgery. Not having a treating physician, I was able to find Dr. Ranjit Wahi who has a clinic on 95th St. through word of mouth. I have had chronic back pain since my fall as an iron worker in 1995. I have multiple pins and screws in my lower back. I was in bad shape and was much in need for some way to control my pains . Through different treatments i.e. pain medications, physical therapy and injections, Dr. Wahi was finally able to find the right combination of pain meds and injections to relieve my pain to a bearable level. I have now been with Dr. Wahi for about 8 years. Dr. Wahi is amongst best I have seen in my life and I have been to many physicians. He is very knowledgeable about pain management and treatments. My pain level is now bearable with 75% to 80% relief. He has been a “godsend” in my life. I can’t thank him enough for the care he has given me amongst his tremendous knowledge of pain relief. In addition he has been the best human being.

Dr. Ranjit Wahi has managed my pain since 1997. During that time I’ve found him to be not only competent but also compassionate towards his patents. Dr. Wahi exhibits exemplary professionalism coupled with the right amount of humor and friendliness that relaxes the most intense patient, settings and procedures. His office suite is well maintained and I’ve never experienced an overwhelming wait time to be seen. I recommend Dr. Wahi without reservation.

It was late November 2002 and I have recently arrived to the Chicago area 2 months prior. Over the 2 month period I was experienced a terrible pain in my back and chest area. I turned to the yellow pages where I found an advertisement for Midwest Physician Pain Center. After making an appointment and a series of tests, I was found to have a pea size lump in my right chest and a herniated disk in my lower back. Having the tumor in my right breast biopsied it was found to be a malignant for breast cancer. In the next 2 months the tumor had enlarged to a golf ball size. Overnight, Dr. Wahi contacted a team of professional doctors at South Shore Hospital where I had my first mastectomy. He was in the surgery room every step of the way. Over the last eight years I have been seeing Dr. Wahi and my pain is under control. This man aside from being empathic is very, very knowledgeable in pain management.
This man saved my life amongst other statistics that I had only a few years to live in 2003. Here I sit celebrating my 40th birthday in June 2010.
Thank you dearly Dr. Wahi

Everyday life has become much better, especially being able to do things I wasn’t able to do before, such as bending over and picking things up. I’m more able to cope with people and do my work. Construction work is hard. My medication helps me function as far as lifting heavier objects, especially flooring. I’m able to work much better and at a faster pace. I’m not as slow as I used to be. I’m able to get up and do my chores at home as well. I’m thankful for being able to get back to working and doing things I wasn’t able to do before. Lifting, bending, etc.. and coping with people on an everyday level much much better.

When I first came to Dr. Wahi I could barely walk. I was in severe pain and did not know what to do. Thank goodness for his expertise in helping me to manage my excruciating pain.

For the last 4 years I’ve been a patient at Midwest Physician Pain Center and although I travel a great distance for my treatments, they are worth the trip. My injections are not as painful as I’ve received at some other hospitals and/or clinics. The staff is pleasant and most times I’m in and out in under an hour.
– Aleatha Shaw
The most caring doctor i ever met. There is passion in his desire to keep the patients off getting addicted to the pain killers and cure them with his injections and physical therapy. Dr. Wahi acts as a doctor and human being who listens to my personal problems as well and of course pain problems.

I have been a patient of Dr Ranjit Wahi since 2006. In the last 10 years, he has always maintained a professional office. It’s clean, peaceful, friendly, and compassionate. When I first started coming in 2006 I was overweight and many times the pain was so severe I was able to go to the doctor’s office and receive injections to straighten my back put instead of going to the hospital.
He has a workout area, a sauna, and therapy. He encouraged me to get into physical shape and lose the weight and strengthen my core. I can always depend on his staff and the dr. To be on time and be there for me. I also suffer from anxiety and to have this consistent, caring doctor, has eased these attacks as they started after my 1st back surgery in 1994. My medicine has always been accurate and on-time as well. Thank you!
– Terese P.

Dr. Wahi’s pain management center has done wonders for my severe spinal conditions(lumbar, cervical & thoracic).patients are seen at their scheduled times-literally no waiting. The staff is extremely professional and courtesy and extremely helpful on all aspects. Dr. Wahi has been able to allow me to function where other doctors Have not. He truly cares about his patients. Judy has been so helpful and has gone the extra mile navigating the Medicare system on my behalf. I would highly recommend this office to others who have debilitating pain and are in need of professional help that actually helps.
