Anne Zuzelski, MD, RMSK

Dr. Anne Zuzelski specializes in image guided regenerative medicine treatments to heal acute and chronic injuries of the spine, joints and extremities. Dr. Zuzelski is board certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation. She attended medical school at Wayne State University in Detroit, MI and went on to attend residency at The University of Michigan. She then completed a spinal cord injury fellowship at University of California Irvine. She began her career in private practice in Grand Rapids, MI, treating a variety of patients with severe neurological and orthopedic conditions that impaired them from functioning fully. It is through this work that she learned of prolotherapy and how it could benefit not only her patients, but many people with common conditions such as arthritis, tendon tears, and spine conditions among others.

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.
