At Ospina Medical, our goal is to completely modernize the patient experience using cutting edge technologies, evidence-based medical procedures and individualized treatment plans designed to not just improve pain, but elevate your overall well-being.

We take extra measures to streamline communication and keep you well-informed throughout your treatment. Our goal is to treat you as a whole and offer the most advanced therapies, while maintaining a strong appreciation for the rich history, tradition and art of practicing medicine.

The human body is designed to repair damage. In certain instances, however, the body may not be able to heal as effectively due to inadequate blood supply to the tissue, chronicity of the condition, or severity of the injury. Interventional orthopedic treatments harness our body’s own natural healing factors to accelerate and enhance the repair of damaged tissues. Ospina Medical’s physicians are leaders in the field of non-surgical interventional orthopedics with extensive advanced training from the Interventional Orthopedic Foundation. As part of our treatment options, we are proud to offer these cutting-edge therapies to our patients in New York City.

Functional medicine is a systems biology-based model that empowers patients and providers to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. By addressing root cause, rather than symptoms, practitioners become honed to your unique genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors that may be contributing to your disease process. By understanding your body as a whole, our practitioners at Ospina Medical can leverage this information to direct personalized treatment plans that ultimately lead to improved outcomes.
