Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.s) are complete physicians who are fully trained and licensed to prescribe medication and to perform surgery. D.O.s and allopathic physicians (M.D.s) are the only two types of complete physicians.
Osteopathic medicine embraces a holistic philosophy, considering the body as a unit of interrelated systems that work together to ensure good health. In addition to prescribing medication and performing surgery, osteopathic physicians are trained to use osteopathic manipulative medicine as an additional tool in diagnosing and treating patients.
Osteopathic physicians focus on the musculoskeletal system. This interconnected system of nerves, muscles, and bones makes up about two-thirds of the body's structure and plays a critical role in its ability to function. D.O.s are trained to identify structural problems and to facilitate the body's natural tendency towards health and self-healing.
Osteopathic physicians are complete doctors who offer their patients something extra.
