Dr. Don Selvey
Our practice specializes in Integrative approaches to Restorative Medicine. That is, using a wide array of “best practices” to help you feel your best.
Pain: A common manifestation of disease or injury is pain. This may be thought of as a signal from the body to the brain that “something is wrong.” Sometimes, the source of pain is obvious – such as accidentally hitting your thumb with a hammer. Many times, though, the source of the pain is not at all obvious but that doesn’t make it hurt any less. At Copper Valley, we recognize that treatment of acute pain may differ from the treatment of chronic pain (pain lasting more than three months). We have safe and effective options for both.
Hormone Replacement Therapy: Hormones are used throughout the body as signaling agents. With normal aging, we lose the ability to make an adequate supply of many hormones. Both men and women can experience the serious and unpleasant effects of low testosterone and/or estrogen and progesterone. There are ways to provide replacement hormones safely. Other hormones that frequently need to be evaluated and treated include thyroid hormone and cortisol, the “stress hormone.”
Restorative Medicine also includes treatment for sexual dysfunction and fertility.
Anti-Aging Therapy: Growing older may be inevitable, but there is no reason to do so without a fight. We can help you to fight what has become regarded as “normal” effects of growing older. It involves aesthetics but is much more than just that. Whether you need help getting rid or wrinkle with one of the FDA-approved agents, such as Xeomin or Jeuveau, or a plumping out the deeper creases with Restylane, Versa or Beletero, we can help.
Weight Loss: There are many reasons for excess weight gain, and therefore many options to help remove the weight safely. Let us help you to help yourself.
Peptide Therapy: A newer tool in the arsenal of restorative medicine is the use of peptides to accomplish cell signaling, without the risks of some of the dangerous hormones. While most of us would love to feel like we did as an early teen, we probably don’t want to risk high doses of some of those teen years hormones. Peptides may be a better choice for some.
Preventive Medicine: Prevention is the most effective cure. Our focus is preventing, to the greatest extent possible, the progression of acute illness to chronic disease. Identifying a potentially debilitating condition in very early stages may make treatment easier and more successful. At Copper Valley Medical, we offer Physical Examinations, including for High School and college athletes. We have the ability to perform an ECG/EKG to evaluate the electrical activity of the heart, and can also arrange for multi-day monitoring. We also offer nutrient IVs for a quick boost in energy and resolution of deficiencies. All of our patients are provided access to medical-grade nutritional supplements at a substantial discount over retail.
If you don’t have a primary care physician, we are pleased to provide that service for you, as well.
