Dr. Mazloomdoost's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Mazloomdoost "Danesh Mazloomdoost, M.D.,a native Kentuckian and the visionary behind Wellward. As a Johns Hopkins trained, double board certified physician, he is passionate about the innovating sustainable treatments for injury and pain. The child of two passionate physicians dedicated to a healthy perspective on pain, he watched his parents build one of Kentucky's first multidisciplinary pain clinics. He grew up in this practice and, from their example, pursued medicine. He is now fellowship-trained and dual-board certified in Anesthesiology Pain Management. He is at the frontier of scientific innovation, having trained at prestigious institutions including Johns Hopkins and MD Anderson. His numerous publications include esteemed journal articles and book chapters on new treatments for pain and information technology advances in medicine. Dr. Danesh has a long-standing passion for humanitarian medical relief and has participated in medical projects in Honduras, East Africa, and the Middle East. But he realized that there was also a need in the field of pain treatment in Kentucky. So, he returned home to Kentucky and has been working to fix the problems in healthcare contributing to the opioid epidemic and the neglect of proper treatments for painful conditions. He is now the medical director of Wellward Regenerative Medicine, continuing the legacy begun by his parents."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Mazloomdoost "Most chronic pain states evolve from a complex inter-weaving of disease, lifestyle, and behaviors that lead to a progressively worsening disease cycle. Our goal is to stop that cycle. At Pain Management Medicine, we address the source of pain to seek long-term, sustainable results. Our solutions are comprehensive, minimally-invasive, and specialized at treating the source of pain."

I'm a little surprised that we had such a vastly different experience than everyone else. To be a pain management doctor he was not very compassionate or understanding. He cut me off mid sentence while explaining my pain to ask if I had considered the possibility that the pain was all in my head....more

Being a cancer patient sometimes meds don't help all that much. So when I hurt I really hurt. I have never been told not to come in for help. Dr. Danish and his staff really care.
