As a practicing osteopathic physician, Dr. Hunnius has at the core of his medical care the concept of a holistic approach to patient care while promoting health maintenance as a fundamental aspect of medicine. Osteopathic principles state that the body is capable of self-regulation and self-healing. Regenerative Medicine complements such ideals by using your own body’s tissue to heal injury and disease. With a minimally invasive approach, patients experience a quicker recovery time which translates into less time away from daily activities and sports.
