Our experts work together in a coordinated system to identify and treat conditions of the body and mind, ranging from the most common to the most complex. KOPI's physicians, surgeons, psychologists, and MBSR professionals can then create comprehensive and customized treatment plans that are tailored to the individual’s activity, lifestyle and personal goals.

Live Better with Complete Care from KOPI
LETTER FROM THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR
We opened the doors of KOPI just over a decade ago with the intention of providing the best multidisciplinary approach for musculoskeletal pathology. Our main focus is the treatment of pain, which we manage with the modalities of sleep, psychology, movement, medication and intervention. Every patient is assessed and managed with these modalities in mind. We are fortunate to have found a psychologist that offers individual therapy as well as CBT and ACT for patients. We are also fortunate to be able to offer MBSR (mindfulness-based stress reduction) which can be very beneficial for these patients.
Over the past ten years, we have noted an increase in sports and extremity related injuries. In response, we have developed a regenerative medicine clinic that offers an approach to symptom relief that differs from traditional methods.
With opioids being in the spotlight over the last few years, we have developed a High Dose Opioid clinic to help patients and physicians deal with the burden of the opioid guidelines. We help patients taper down their dose of opioids, or sometimes convert to Suboxone. The Suboxone patients are classically those who fail a taper, or continue to be outside the guidelines.
We have moved into our new clinic in the East end of Kingston, and are proud to offer a better environment to our patients. We are excited to see what the next ten years will bring.
