Dr. Gopal views health as vitality, not simply the absence of disease. He is a founder of Vitality Medicine of New York (VMNY) at the midtown Manhattan & North Yonkers locations. This practice specializes in Integrative & Functional Medicine & Regenerative Medicine. The physicians and providers at VMNY are using decades of clinical practice experience to integrate principles of traditional and integrative / functional medicine, a whole-body approach to provide higher levels of wellness, vitality and promote genuine healing from the inside. Functional medicine is a science-based whole systems approach, focusing on the fundamental underlying causes of the patient’s clinical symptoms. Root causes of disease are identified by analyzing how different influences (genetics, nutrition, toxins, psycho-spiritual issues, etc.) can affect a person’s whole mind and body health, rather than just classifying, diagnosing, and treating diseases in a fragmented manner like in conventional medicine. The focus is, therefore, on understanding and managing each individual’s body systems, which interact with each other rather than treat symptoms. Our management options, therefore, address “WHY” does one have a condition, not just “WHAT” we can do about it, like the pill for every symptom approach we see in conventional medicine.
Regenerative therapies such as PRP and Adult stem cells from your own body (autografts) or donor (allografts) are a spectrum of cutting edge techniques used to naturally treat, heal and regenerate skin, hair, tendon, joints, muscle, cartilage. Hereby, treating the cause rather than masking the symptoms.
