Theron Grover MD opened Great Lakes Pain Consultants (GLPC) in the Spring of 2003 in Bay City, Michigan. It didn't take long for Dr. Grover to outgrow his pain clinic. A new pain management center was constructed and opened January 26, 2004. An expansion to the pain center was completed in November 2006 adding a larger physical therapy area with Hydroworx pool as well as additional treatment rooms. Dr. Grover is an anesthesiologist trained specifically in pain management. Our medical team also includes several nurses trained in the needs of pain management patients as well as Michigan Behavioral Consultants and Horizon Physical Therapy. The office couldn't run as smoothly as it does without our wonderful administrative staff members.
GLPC's pain management center offers comprehensive pain management treatment, physical therapy and behavioral medicine including biofeedback and a Fibromyalgia clinic all in one location. GLPC specializes in treating chronic pain conditions. We use a variety of methods and treatments across several medical disciplines to make certain every aspect of a person's pain is examined and treated according to each individuals need.

Important Notice to All Patients
In light of the recent FDA warning regarding medication produced by Main Street Family Pharmacy in Newburn, Tennessee, Great Lakes Pain would like to reassure all of our patients that we have never done business with or received any medications from the compounding pharmacy at the center of the latest FDA investigation.
Since our inception in 2003, we have always received our steroid medication from Upjohn, a division of Pfizer Incorporated based within our own backyard here in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Our patients are and will remain unaffected by the events that have unfolded regarding the medical supplies produced by the Main Street Family Pharmacy.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the safety and use of the steroid medications I use within my practice, please feel free to contact my office directly at (989) 686-6900.
As of October 4, 2012, both the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have advised that "all health care personnel cease using any product made by New England Compounding Center" due to a nationwide outbreak of fungal meningitis. The Framingham, Massachusetts-based compounding pharmacy voluntarily shut down operations the same day, and an active investigation is underway by both the CDC and FDA.
Voluntary Recall of Methylprednisolone Acetate
Great Lakes Pain Consultants has been closely following the situation regarding the voluntary recall of methylprednisolone acetate. Be assured we have checked the lot numbers on our inventory of methylprednisolone acetate to confirm our supply is not part of this recall. Our patients will not be effected by this recent development. For more information regarding the recalled methylprednisolone acetate, please follow the link below.
