Meet R. Michael Graham, MD, of Advanced Orthopedics - Nonsurgical & Regenerative Treatments

Dr. R. Michael Graham completed two years of internal medicine residency at John Hopkins University, one year of orthopedic pathology at Mount Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, one year of general surgery at George Washington University in Washington, DC, and a four-year orthopaedic residency at the State University of New York in Buffalo.

He then moved to California so that he could study under Dr. William Wagner, a world-renowned authority in the diagnosis and treatment of foot and ankle problems completing a Foot & Ankle fellowship program at the University of Southern California.

In 1990, he moved, with his young family, to Virginia Beach to begin his orthopedic practice. Dr. Graham has been one of the region's most active orthopedic surgeons and in 2005 he became the Director of the Orthopedic Center for Foot and Ankle Reconstruction.

Dr. Graham is pleased to announce the opening of a new model of orthopedic practice in Hampton Roads, which specializes in the nonsurgical treatments for musculoskeletal conditions with a strong emphasis on regenerative therapies to promote faster and more reliable healing.

My name is Dr. R. Michael Graham, and I am the Medical Director of "Advanced Orthopedics - Nonsurgical & Regenerative Treatments." We specialize in getting people better without surgery.

For the past 15 years, I have been a practicing orthopedic trauma surgeon with a subspecialty interest in Foot and Ankle reconstruction. I have enjoyed every minute of it.

Orthopedics is a speciality that has always been driven by innovative technological change. Over the past 10 years, perhaps the most dramatic advances have been in the nonsurgical treatment of orthopaedic injuries and musculoskeletal pain. In many cases these advances have become so effective that nonsurgical treatments are now displacing many traditional surgical techniques to become the preferred primary form of treatment.

Major traumatic injuries such as an open fracture will always require surgery. But most orthopedic conditions are less severe and are due to either minor injury or to an overload condition that creates localized inflammation and pain. Recent advances in orthopedic research and development have dramatically improved the nonsurgical treatment for these less severe conditions.

Over the past several years, I have gradually incorporated a large variety of nonsurgical approaches into my treatment protocols. My patients and I have found these nonsurgical approaches to be increasingly effective. In most cases, patients are able to continue to work as the treatment progresses which is a terrific advantage over surgery. All of the treatments are performed "in office" which dramatically reduces the cost, is far more convenient and saves significant time for the patient.

I have found that getting people better without surgery gives me a sense of achievement that is as rewarding as surgery itself and the patients for good reason clearly prefer it. In the past several months, I have decided to stop performing surgery so that I can focus all of my interest and energy on these exciting, innovative and nonsurgical "in office" therapies.

If you would prefer to get better without surgery, please call and make an appointment. It would be my privilege to help you.
