The Regenerative Institute at CROM (RIC) is Denver’s leading provider of Stem Cell Therapy and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), using cutting edge Regenerative Medicine techniques. RIC was founded by the doctors from CROM (Colorado Rehabilitation & Occupational Medicine).
The physicians of RIC are board certified in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R). This medical specialty has the most extensive, and best suited training to perform minimally invasive Regenerative Medicine Therapies. Our doctors are experts at diagnosing athletic and age-related orthopedic injuries of the joints, tendons, neck and back.
The physicians of RIC are pioneers of Regenerative Medicine in Colorado, performing some of the first PRP procedures over a decade ago, and among the first practices in Colorado to perform Stem Cell treatments. RIC physicians were also among the first to perform, and research the use of ultrasound to diagnose musculoskeletal conditions and guide injections.
In addition to Regenerative Medicine, we have been performing non-surgical orthopedic treatments since 1992.
Levi Miller, DO
Dr. Levi Miller is an expert in Musculoskeletal Medicine and is fellowship trained in minimally invasive procedures with regenerative therapies, including stem cell therapies. He has advanced training for diagnosing conditions of the spine, such as degenerative disc disease, as well as for joints conditions, including arthritis and tendonopathies, for areas of the body such as the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees. He performs all of his procedures with minimally invasive techniques using image guidance, such as ultrasound and fluoroscopy (i.e. live x-ray), to ensure exact acquisition of target tissue.
Dr. Miller performs state-of-the-art treatments. He conducts clinical research and is currently performing a study with stem cells for low back pain due to degenerative disc disease. He tracks outcomes from the regenerative procedures with validated clinical measures. He has extensive experience with musculoskeletal disorders and has performed over tens of thousands of therapeutic injections to treat these conditions. He directs holistic and multi-disciplined approach which may include directed therapeutic exercises and optimized nutrition. Dr. Miller engages with each patient with a thoughtful, individualized, careful approach to ensure the best outcomes for each patient.
Scott Primack, DO
Dr. Scott Primack has been practicing musculoskeletal medicine in Colorado for over 25 years. He completed his Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) residency at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago at Northwestern University. Following his graduation, Dr. Primack completed post-doctoral training at the University of Washington, where he trained with the leaders in the field of surgical peripheral joint reconstruction, refining his skills in non-operative peripheral joint treatments. It was here that Dr. Primack began his formal ultrasound imaging training which included extensive research and publication. Dr. Primack is recognized as as a pioneer of ultrasound diagnostics imaging and teaches diagnostic and interventional ultrasound internationally.
Dr. Primack utilizes ultrasound both diagnostically as well as therapeutically as an adjunct in finding the “pain generator” for patients who are seeking high-level non-operative regenerative medicine options to enhance their quality of life and improve their function. His extensive research in post-regenerative medicine injection protocols and outcome analysis has helped numerous patients achieve his/her goals in their work and leisure activities.
Usama Ghazi, DO
Dr. Ghazi is a graduate of Midwestern University – Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed residency training in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at UCLA/VAGLAHS (Los Angeles, California).Dr. Ghazi completed fellowship training in Pain Management and served as a clinical instructor at the Stanford Interventional Spine Center. He is board of certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation through the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and in Pain Medicine through the American Board of Anesthesiology. He is an adjunct assistant professor at the College of Osteopathic Medicine at Touro University in California.
The primary focus of Dr. Ghazi’s outpatient practice is the diagnosis and treatment of individuals with musculoskeletal and neurological disorders. He performs interventional injections under flouroscopic guidance in the lumbar, thoracic and cervical spine.
