Welcome Integrative Orthopedics: a new approach to sports, spine and pain medicine.
Lee Wolfer, MD is a world leader and lecturer in Integrative Orthopedics. Integrative Orthopedics combines the best of traditional orthopedic medicine with complementary alternative medicine and cutting edge regenerative injection therapies for the diagnosis and treatment of sports injuries and pain conditions.
Our mission is to provide state-of-the-art integrative orthopedic care for our active patients, from elite athletes to weekend warriors. Treatment is inter-disciplinary with close collaboration between diverse health care professionals specializing in acupuncture, chiropractic, rolfing, naturopathy and nutrition. When needed, we utilize the best technology available for accurate diagnosis, including ultrasound, MRI and Electromyography (EMG). Treatment is designed to address the root cause of the pain. We focus on relieving pain and optimizing athletic performance. Our approach is non-surgical, however, in appropriate clinical situations, surgery may be helpful and we are well-connected to the top surgical specialists in the San Francisco Bay Area.
As part of your initial visit Dr. Wolfer performs a comprehensive medical evaluation of your condition. This includes a complete medical history, review of outcome of prior treatments, focused physical exam, and review of imaging. If necessary, once the intake is complete Dr. Wolfer will contact key medical providers participating in your care. As appropriate, Dr. Wolfer will also perform a search of the medical literature to provide you with the latest in evidence based treatment for your condition. Based on each individual patient’s condition, you will receive an individualized rehabilitation plan with recommendations for the best treatment, exercise and nutrition. If appropriate, regenerative therapy injections may be recommended.
In the discipline of Integrative Orthopedics, patient input and participation are critical to the success of the treatment plan. Our goal is your goal — we will help you get rid of the pain and get back to the activities you love.
