Anne Zuzelski, MD, RMSK
Dr. Zuzelski attended the Hackett-Hemwall-Patterson prolotherapy training conference and participated in their annual Honduran mission trip, where she was able to treat patients with a variety of conditions with prolotherapy. She was inspired by how effective prolotherapy was at treating common, difficult-to-treat conditions. To better diagnose and treat her patients, she learned musculoskeletal ultrasound and completed the ARDMS certification program. In addition to prolotherapy, Dr. Zuzelski has experience in treating patients using platelet rich plasma and other regenerative therapies to more effectively heal injuries.
