Dr. Aleksandr Martirosov was born in St-Petersburg, Russia on August 19, 1963. Both his mother and his father were well known physicians and scientists in Russia. Young Aleksandr decided at an early age to follow in his parents’ footsteps as a physician. He learned both from being at his parents’ side as well as from the course of study. In 1986, Dr. Martirosov graduated St-Petersburg’s Medical Academy with the degree of Medical Doctor and started practicing medicine. In 1990, Dr. Martirosov learned about Osteopathy and realized that his vision of medicine is very similar to the philosophy of the Osteopathic teaching so he decided to continue his education and become a doctor of Osteopathy.
In 1996, Dr. Martirosov graduated from New York College of Osteopathic Medicine with the degree of Doctor of Osteopathy. Osteopathic schools emphasize training students to be primary care physicians and take the "whole person" approach to medicine. Instead of just treating specific symptoms or illnesses, they regard your body as an integrated whole.
Osteopathic physicians focus on preventive healthcare and receive extra training in the musculoskeletal system. This training provides osteopathic physicians with a better understanding of the ways that an injury or illness in one part of your body can affect another and gives DO's a therapeutic and diagnostic advantage over other doctors. Osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) allows physicians to use their hands to diagnose injury and illness and to encourage your body's natural tendency toward good health.
Dr. Martirosov believes that medicine should offer more than just administering drugs to the patients, and supports a philosophy of medicine based on ideas that date back to Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine. The philosophy focuses on the unity of all body parts. He recognizes the body's natural ability to heal itself and stresses preventive medicine, eating properly, and keeping fit. By combining all medical procedures with Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, Dr.Martirosov offers his patients the most comprehensive care available in medicine today.
