Dr. Ugochi Azuike, a native of Houston, Texas with Nigerian roots, is the most recent addition to the Texas interventional Orthopedics team. After graduating with honors from the University of Texas at Austin, she went on to complete her medical school education at the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine (TCOM) in Fort Worth, Texas.
Osteopathic training best-aligned with her beliefs of a multimodal, pan-systemic, and more holistic approach to treatment. She received hundreds of hours of training in osteopathic manipulation of the body; a treatment modality that promotes the body’s natural ability to self-regulate and self-heal. She was drawn to these aspects of medicine because of the focus on the restoration of body function in order to improve the quality of life as a whole. Her training, leadership positions, and medical interests translated into a physical medicine and rehabilitation residency position at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. Baylor expanded and honed her skill set in musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, and sports and spine rehabilitation/treatments. This new set of tools ignited a desire to expand upon and broaden her skill set in the field of not only musculoskeletal and neuromuscular medicine but also regenerative medicine. She was the first and only female physician to complete an Interventional Orthopedic and Regenerative Medicine fellowship at the Centeno Schultz Clinic. There, she gained extensive training in advanced interventional injection techniques for the spine, muscles, and peripheral joints using orthobiologics such as stem cells, PRP, and prolotherapy.
She is also currently involved in clinical research in the field of interventional orthopedics that is being used to advance and pioneers this ever-growing field. Her interests include traveling, spending time with family, and recording music. She is currently featured on a platinum-selling album.
Dr. King is anything but ordinary. Graduating with her Bachelor of Health Science Magna Cum Laude from Andrews University to completing her Doctorate in Physical Therapy August 2020, she dedicates her time to her passion to assist those who seek her rehabilitative skills. She works hard to deliver the utmost trustworthy and skillful patient care through carefully built treatment plans, open mindedness, and the willingness to always listen to her patients. “My patients deserve the best. Every individual that walks in to see me expects that I have the skills and knowledge to help them get better. So why shouldn’t I exceed their expectations? They deserve everything I can give to rehabilitate them and get them back to living a life without pain and the fear of movement making them worse.”
