Meet Our Doctors
Dr. Jamie M. Nuwer, M.D. / RegenCore Method Creator
Sports Medicine Specialist located in Palo Alto, CA
Jamie Nuwer, M.D. is a lifetime resident of California. She fell in love with the Bay Area while attending college at Stanford University.
Jamie returned to her hometown of Los Angeles for medical school at UCLA. She returned to the Bay Area for residency in Family Medicine and fellowship in Sports Medicine at O’Connor Hospital, a Stanford-affiliated training program in San Jose.

Dr. Nuwer has served as the chair of the international medical committee for the sport of Ultimate Frisbee since 2011.
Dr. Nuwer initially became interested in Regenerative Medicine through her experience with her own knee. She had an old sports injury that led to early onset arthritis in her knee. She had her own knee treated with stem cell therapy, and it improved tremendously. She became even more passionate about Regenerative Medicine and developed the RegenCore Method to help other patients have the same excellent results she experienced first-hand.
Over the recent years, Dr. Nuwer has taken a great interest in stem cell research and Regenerative Medicine. This has quickly become her main area of focus. She personally helps hundreds of patients every year regain function and a better quality of life through RegenCore‘s safe and effective Regenerative Therapy approach.
Outside of medicine, Dr. Nuwer enjoys time with her family, friends, and dogs. She also enjoys Ultimate Frisbee, gardening, outdoor recreation, cycling, cooking, and traveling. She currently coaches the women’s club ultimate Frisbee team at Stanford University.
