About these Clinics/Practices

Dr. Marcus is a member of the Pain Management Section of the EDS Consortium. He started the first pain center in New York City in 1977 and went on to direct multidisciplinary pain centers at Lenox Hill Hospital in NYC and Princess Margaret Hospital in Windsor, UK. He was trained in the evaluation and treatment of soft tissue pain by Hans Kraus, MD, President JFK’s physician for his back pain, who replaced Janet Travell when her treatments failed. Currently, the Director of Clinical Muscle Pain Research at Weill-Cornell Medicine, his practice deals with all aspects of chronic pain. He has invented an electric instrument that can identify specific muscles causing pain and stiffness so common in EDS patients. During the initial evaluation, each patient is tested for all possible sensitized muscles to facilitate a detailed treatment plan. Comprehensive treatment may include use of photobiomodulation, muscle tendon injections, physical therapy, treatment of symptoms of MCAD, and use of a variety of analgesic medications.
