Meet Paramjit “Romi” Chopra of MIMIT (Midwest Institute for Minimally Invasive Therapies)

Today we’d like to introduce you to Paramjit “Romi” Chopra.

Romi, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I am a physician and an entrepreneur passionate about taking care of people, caring for people using holistic and hi-tech techniques and remedies to help people lead a happy and healthy life. I trained at Harvard medical school and pursued academic medicine but ultimately got frustrated by the waste, inefficiencies and lack of patient-centric care at large institutions. I watched patients stumble through complex systems that appear to care only for their existence. Physicians worked in silo’s and patients were lost and did not easily receive the state of the art minimally invasive options.

I then formed MIMIT with the goal of providing state of the art, minimally invasive treatment options in the community, closer to their homes. We integrated holistic patient care methods such as meditation, music therapy along with hi-tech state of the art advanced techniques using image guidance. We strive to treat the body, mind and soul, not just in words but with our day to day actions.

I chose to apply best of practice principles from other industries applying systems thinking, project and process management, software as a service, cloud platforms, advanced data analytics to help provide cost effective care. My focus was to keep the patient out of unnecessary hospitalization yet provide advanced care in an outpatient setting.

We currently provide minimally invasive, advanced image guided therapeutic options to all of Chicagoland in an outpatient environment.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Paving a new path, always requires courage, endurance and the ability to weather changes and resistance from the status-quo… it has been a successful but uphill battle as I was a David going up against several Goliath’s.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
MIMIT is a multi specialty physician group. We care for and treat patients with multiple ailments such as cancers, vascular disease, uterine fibroids, varicose veins, spine ailments and specialize in using minimally invasive advanced state of the art treatment options. We are known for providing hi touch, hi-tech, compassionate and cost effective care.

We are proud of providing equivalent, if not better care than large expensive institutions in the Chicagoland area. We have hundreds of patients spanning multiple generations in the same family that have relied on us for care of complex conditions.

What sets us apart from others is that, at the very core we underscore the “care” in “healthcare”. Our foundational principle is that we care for the patient in all aspects and do whatever it takes to practically provide them the most optimum outcome.

What were you like growing up?
I was always passionate about life, learning and people! At 17 1/2, I was in medical school and since early on cared a lot for people with a desire to help people and provide solutions to their problems. I always believed that happiness was not the absence of problems, it is the presence of solutions.

While deeply spiritual with beliefs in yoga and Ayurveda at an early age, I was also greatly intrigued by hi-tech applications for solving health problems and always sought to combine them with the ultimate goal of fulfilling basic human needs.
