Helping patients get back to an independent lifestyle is the biggest reward for Emily Graf, DO, a physiatrist who joined HFM Lakeshore Orthopaedics in August.
Dr. Graf provides non-surgical orthopaedic care, including non-surgical spine, musculoskeletal medicine and functional medicine to treat a wide-variety of conditions, including sports injuries, spinal disorders, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome and pain management.
Dr. Graf’s areas of interest include conservative management of acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries or pain, including fibromyalgia, low back and neck pain, electromyography, and botulinum toxin injections for cervical dystonia, headache and spasticity.
She believes that successful patient outcomes depend on thorough education, understanding and participation from both the provider and patient.
“It’s important that my patients and I listen to each other’s concerns through an open line of communication,” expressed Dr. Graf. “I believe that this is paramount for achieving success.”
Dr. Graf received her doctorate of osteopathic medicine from Des Moines University in Des Moines, Iowa. She completed her medical residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee where she also served as chief resident.
Dr. Graf enjoys spending time with her husband and one-year-old son. In her free time, she enjoys staying active and being outdoors gardening, fishing, hiking and boating.
