Dr. Scott Brandt
Founder & Medical Director of ThriveMD


Education

Dr. Scott Brandt completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, and attended medical school at Wake Forest School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He then completed his anesthesiology residency training and internship at the University of Illinois and Michael Reese Hospitals in Chicago.

As a resident in anesthesiology, Dr. Brandt specialized in interventional pain management. He continues to stay at the forefront of medical innovations that provide longer lasting solutions for acute and chronic pain as well as treatments to help reduce the risks associated with the diseases of aging.

Founding ThriveMD

Since 2002, Dr. Brandt had been a part-time resident in Vail, CO.  His passion for further advancing the field of pain management, coupled with the progress in Regenerative Medicine, led to his decision to move full-time to Vail in 2012 with his wife and 2 daughters. Vail’s aging active population is a perfect fit for his state-of-the-art Regenerative Medicine practice, ThriveMD.

ThriveMD offers a variety of treatment options, including autologous stem cell treatments and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Dr. Brandt has built a clinic with an emphasis on preserving and improving joint, soft tissue and spine function so that patients can continue to enjoy all that Colorado has to offer. As his practice continues to gain recognition, patients routinely travel across the country to be seen by Dr. Brandt at ThriveMD.

Regenerative Medicine Specialty

Stem Cells for Joint, Soft Tissue and Back Pain
Dr. Brandt has trained extensively across the country and become one of the nation’s top stem cell therapy doctors. He provides the highest quality patient care available. He continues to incorporate advancements in the field as rapidly as scientific evidence supports their addition. This combined with Dr. Brandt’s unparalleled expertise in minimally invasive injection techniques, utilizing live image guidance, allows him to ensure the best biologic solutions are placed exactly in the areas of tissue damage.

This is especially pertinent when injecting sensitive areas around the spine and degenerative joint anatomy. Stem cell treatments for degenerative disc disease are showing great promise in relieving disc related low back pain. Dr. Brandt has over twenty years of experience injecting thousands of spinal discs. This experience allows him to safely and accurately employ state of the art regenerative therapies to the disc segments. Dr. Brandt is confident that stem cell therapies for lumbar discs will greatly diminish the number of spinal fusions that are being performed for the treatment of disc related low back pain.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Dr. Scott Brandt has also embraced bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) as an important part of disease prevention, health and wellness. As ThriveMD’s hormone doctor, Dr. Brandt has undergone extensive training by Dr. Neal Rouzier, the leading authority on BHRT. Dr. Rouzier is the author of How to Achieve Healthy Aging. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy not only combats the diseases of aging and improves global wellness, but it has been demonstrated that patients who are hormonally optimized report better outcomes following stem cell treatments and surgical procedures.

Research and Publications
Dr. Scott Brandt is actively involved in research and publication, giving instructional workshops, and presenting on a variety of subjects in Regenerative Medicine and Advanced Interventional Pain Management. He is a current instructor for Boston Biolife. He is actively involved with product development and physician proctoring. Clinical research during his career has focused on the safety and efficacy of novel devices. These efforts have resulted in the development and patenting of innovative medical technology.

Licenses and Memberships
Dr. Brandt is licensed in the state of Colorado. He is Board Certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology and has been an International Spinal Injection Society Instructor. He has been a member of the American Society of Anesthesiologists, Colorado Society of Anesthesiologists, International Spinal Injection Society, and the American Board of Pain Medicine.

“The results of Dr. Brandt, and other physicians like him, were industry-wide shifts in applying new technologies to treat a variety of pain syndromes, and ultimately to help to beneficially alter people’s lives.”
