Abdomen, hip or pelvic pain can often go undiagnosed or under-diagnosed due to the anatomical complexity of this region. Vincera Institute’s team has developed a treatment model that integrates specialists and services, encouraging a complete care approach. “Based on their training, doctors tend to focus on their part of the body,” says William C. Meyers, MD, president of Vincera Institute. “By studying how these systems work together, we are able to break down the silos of medical specialties, and look at the anatomy and function of the core as a whole. This approach leads to more accurate diagnosis and an effective treatment plan.”
