Dr. Gopi’s Pain Clinic at Pantai is devoted to providing treatments specially designed to help patients cope with the physical pain they experience. The clinic offers a wide range of pain therapies while specializing in a multimodal treatment of pain using lasers, physiotherapy, psychology, and pharmacology interventions. These are then combined with the latest interventional pain techniques that most effectively alleviate pain.
Founded by pain medicine specialist and anaesthetist Dr. Gopinathan Raju, the clinic has special interest in treating pain with spinal origin, pain as a cancer symptom, and joint-related pain. Dr. Gopi’s radical thoughts on pain make him an important proponent of specialty pain medicine in Malaysia, and through local and international lectures as well as social media, he hopes to create awareness about the importance of pain therapy.
Dr. Gopinathan Raju currently practices at the Pantai Hospital in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, specializing in the treatment of cancer and joint related pains. He obtained his Bachelor of Medicine and Basic Surgery (MBBS) Degree from the Kasturba Medical College in Mangalore, India, in 1995. In 2003, Dr. Gopi obtained his Masters in Anaesthesiology from University Malaya, after which he subspecialized in Pain Medicine at the Professor Tess Cramond Multidisciplinary Pain Centre of the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital in Australia. He became the first doctor in Malaysia to obtain a Fellowship at the Faculty of Pain Medicine of the Australia and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists. Dr. Gopi is concerned that many people in Malaysia are suffering from chronic pain due to their inability to find specialists in pain management. He believes that by treating pain as an underlying condition instead of a secondary symptom, people no longer have to live in misery while the pain takes control of their lives.
