Why Choose Rejuv Medical Southwest For Your Healthcare?
Because we feel there is a better way to deliver healthcare, and in turn that leads to a better you.
If you search definitions for healthcare it can vary tremendously:
“The optimal achievement of therapeutic benefit, avoidance of risk, and minimization of harm”
“Degree of conformity with accepted principles and standard practices, satisfying the patient’s needs, and the attainment of acceptable outcomes, while making appropriate use of resources”
At Rejuv Medical Southwest, we believe that true healthcare should be a partnership between the patient and the team providing your care. It should be a system of preventing disease, chronic pain, and the accompanying functional disability and poor quality of life that ensues.
I started Rejuv Medical Southwest because I believe there is a better way to help you treat pain, recover from injuries that have not been able to heal on their own, and at the same time improve your health. The solution is not to “manage pain”, but to determine the root cause of your pain and then build an effective and sustainable long-term treatment plan.
Our current healthcare system should be a system that delivers true healthcare, but for many patients I see stuck in the system, that is not the case.
Costly treatments, piles of medications, and other interventions are the mainstay of care used to treat symptoms and maintain disease. The end result, that you may be experiencing currently, is what I call an “artificial” state of health. This is what comes from a focus on treating symptoms rather than treating the underlying systems that are failing in your body.
Is there a preventive care system in place? Barely.
It is estimated that as little as 10% of the total healthcare budget in the United States is applied to preventive care. The other 90% is spent on treating sickness, disease, and functional decline – much of which in my opinion could be totally prevented with a better system.
It does not matter if you are eighteen or eighty. It is never too early, or too late, to take steps each day to build a better body – so that you can live life on your terms, accomplish your dreams, and square off the quality of life curve.
Unfortunately, a sputtering decline of health and function has become an almost accepted “part of aging” in our country.
As a physician, this is not what I want for you, nor should it be accepted by you as the norm.
This does not have to be your destiny – if you choose another path. A path that will lead you to a state of maximal health, vitality, vigor, and function for as many days as you are given on this earth.
If that is what you desire then welcome to Rejuv Medical Southwest. Welcome to a better healthcare system.
Our mission at Rejuv Medical is simple – to restore the body through evidence based treatments and reverse the impact of disease and degeneration.
How do we do this?
We utilize a Functional Medicine model to seek out the root cause of pain, poor health or lost function. This is not a system to mask symptoms or maintain disease as is all too common in our current healthcare system. Through a comprehensive evaluation of the systems in your body, using state of the art diagnostic tools and laboratory studies, we can uncover the origin of the problem. From there we can build a sustainable long-term plan to restore the health of your body at the cellular level.
By correcting the internal and external environment that impact the systems in your body, we will impact how you feel and function. This is a much different approach than addressing symptoms.
This is accomplished by addressing what we refer to as the five major spheres of influence – nutrition, exercise, sleep quality, stress management, and social engagement or purpose. These broad categories have a tremendous impact on your health and will dictate how well your body performs as you age.
When we move to a model of treating the underlying system dysfunction instead of the symptoms of the dysfunction, and you take consistent steps each day to prioritize and improve your sphered of influence, you will experience life-transforming results.
As we build your treatment protocol, we use Regenerative Medicine treatments to help heal incompletely healed injuries such as ligament or tendon strains or tears, joint arthritis or degeneration, and nerve injuries. These treatments work harmoniously with your body’s own innate capacity to accelerate healing once we have restored the proper environment. These treatments quickly reduce pain and set a course for long-term pain reduction, not short-term symptom management. The goal is to not have you mask symptoms for the rest of your life, but effectively address the underlying root cause and eliminate it if possible.
Finally, treatments are integrated with trusted physical therapy and personal training partners in the community to build a Medical Fitness program. This will be a customized maintenance program you will use restore or enhance efficient fundamental and functional movement patterns, build strength and endurance, and use the rest of your life to prevent recurrent pain or disease.
This comprehensive approach is the pathway to health, vitality, longevity, as well as independence as you age.
Walking down this pathway I guarantee will add quality life to your years, not just years to your life.
It is impossible to look at a newspaper or the news on television and not hear the stories and concerns about where the future of healthcare is heading.
Why am I not concerned?
Because at Rejuv Medical Southwest we are building and delivering a better, and truer, healthcare system for the community of greater Tucson and Southwest Arizona.
If you have not yet experienced a healthcare system with a mission of “satisfying the patient’s needs”, or one that is working daily on “attainment of acceptable outcomes” than I encourage you to schedule a consultation with us today.
My calling in life as a physician is to leave a positive imprint on this healthcare system with every day that I am given the opportunity to practice.
My mission is guide you, the patient, out of the doom, gloom and frustration of what has become the “acceptable norm” in healthcare. You will walk out our door with hope, a plan, purpose, and a team that will partner with you to guide, coach, and not rest until we have helped you reach your fullest potential in life.
To experience a life not held back by pain, poor health, disease, or declining function – that is our goal for you.
We will deliver better healthcare.
