The idea for FoRM (Functional and Regenerative Medicine) arose between Drs. Herman and Minarik, realizing they both had similar and complimentary approaches to their specialties in medicine. Having shared passions for athletics, an interest in anti-aging strategies, and beliefs in an integrative approach, a natural collaboration developed while working together at Elixia Wellness Group. Following their naturopathic roots, they recognize that regenerative medicine, whether for orthopedics or aesthetics, works better when the fundamentals of health are addressed.
Feel Your Best From the Inside Out.
FoRM aims to focus on therapies with a scientific basis, while staying at the forefront of emerging regenerative therapies that help encourage the body to age well from the inside out. Working with patients to improve their health systemically through nutrition, hormones, exercise, and lifestyle forms an ideal situation for optimal recovery and regeneration.
FoRM realizes that in some ways orthopedics and aesthetics can be at opposite ends of the spectrum. The bottom line, however, is that we all want to feel better, move better, and look better. While the aging process may naturally work against us, at FoRM we believe in harnessing the body’s innate ability to heal and become stronger and have designed our clinic to provide our patients with a blueprint for thriving through every stage of life.
FoRM currently operates out of Elixia Wellness Group, providing reception and billing services, in the heart of Sellwood conveniently located at the corner of SE 13th and Tacoma. Within Elixia, we have dedicated space including an IV suite, injection therapy room with ultrasound for imaging, acupuncture treatment rooms, and aesthetic room with a medical Elos laser.
