The San Francisco Institute for Integrative and Regenerative Medicine is a center of excellence where cutting edge technology and ancient principles of health backed by modern day science meet. The future of medicine is now available to patients looking for a deeper approach to health and healing.


Regenerative medicine is the new frontier of using the body's own innate healing capacity to heal itself. We can amplify this effect by concentrating growth factors. These can then be used to regenerate tissue such as torn muscles, ligaments and cartilage as well as for facial rejuvenation, hair regrowth, scar removal and other aesthetic treatments. Harvesting a high quality regenerative product is important but putting it back into a healthy host that will use it to heal the intended area is even more important.

The San Francisco Institute for Integrative and Regenerative Medicine provides the highest quality regenerative procedures in the context of a complete integrative medicine approach that optimizes successful outcomes.


The San Francisco Institute for Integrative and Regenerative Medicine unites services such as Functional Medicine, IV therapy, Acupuncture, Osteopathic Maniupulative Medicine, Musculoskeletal Ultrasound and Regenerative Medicine to expand the dimensions of what is possible in our modern medical paradigm.


Dr. Wardwell is probably the eighth or tenth doctor I have seen about rosacea. Dermatologists, GPs, alternative medicine practitioners and acupuncturists alike didn’t give me much hope. It is a condition that is hereditary and that you keep for the rest of your life; it can flare-up anytime, they say. I was told I would be on and off antibiotics for the rest of my life. Others said I just needed to relax, there is no “cure”, that “diet and lifestyle wouldn’t affect it”. It is a condition that is not well understood. Some internet research did provide a little more hope, and I did manage to keep it more or less under control for a few years without any medications. But it returned again earlier this year, and much worse than before. I felt I was doing everything by the book, I did not understand. It even spread to my eyelid. I decided to try Dr. Wardwell.

Dr. Wardwell was fantastic, he spent so much time with me and explained every single step very thoroughly.   Not going to lie, the injection was painful but way less so than surgery!  If I had gone ahead with the surgery, it would have been almost a year-long recovery, with only  a 50% success rate.

After the PRP, I had to take it easy for about 8 weeks – no real exercise.  That was hard, but once I started running again, the recovery came very quickly.  And my hamstring felt better than it had in years.  I had the shot at the beginning of December and in April was able to run the Boston Marathon.

Dr. Jake Wardwell is a GOD! I mean it! He has the tools to heal backs, hips and anything that ails you. I was starting to believe I would spend the rest of my life in pain and then Dr. Wardwell introduced me to Prolo Therapy. Anyone who suffers from back pain needs to see Dr. Wardwell. I have gone from chronic pain to NO PAIN. I tried everything from PT, cortisone shots etc. and Prolo Therapy is a natural way to cure chronic pain. I feel so fortunate to have stumbled upon this therapy and if you too suffer from chronic pain I HIGHLY recommend you make an appt.  You won’t be sorry. 🙂

Dr. Wardwell helped to heal my wrist using prolotherapy. My wrist had been injured a year prior during a Crossfit class and I had to stop my exercise routine due to this. After one prolotherapy session I felt 70% better and I can happily say that after the second treatment I am pain free and able to return to working out.

As a professional racecar driver, I put an incredible amount of stress on my body. With regular treatments of IV Myers Cocktails, Dr. Wardwell has helped keep me at the peak of my performance.

I’ve been working with Dr. Jake Wardwell for almost two years, and he’s made a profound improvement in not only my overall health (through prescription vitamins, IV therapy, and preventative diagnostic tests), but he has also helped me deal with specific issues that have come up along the way. When training for my first triathlon, I developed severe neuroma in my feet from running and (to my surprise!). Dr. Wardwell was able to get me back on my feet and running pain free through acupuncture treatments!

Not only is Dr. Wardwell a gifted physician, but he really, truly cares about his patients, which shines through in his results. Slow to prescribe traditional medicines with heavy side effects, I’ve been shocked at what Dr. Wardwell has accomplished in my health with wholistic, natural remedies and his trademark attention to detail.

Covid-19 is a novel virus that likely came from animal origins starting in Wuhan, China. There have been multiple waves of this disease as it has spread across the globe, first in China, then in Iran and Italy and now it has made its way to the United States. We have had time to learn from experiences in other countries about who is effected, how the disease is transmitted and mechanisms for reducing the rate of transmission and spread in our communities.
