Stacey Franz, DO
Stacey Franz, DO is a fellowship-trained medical physician with board certification in both Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine. Her professional interests include musculoskeletal and sports medicine, non-surgical care of the spine, interventional procedures (both spine and peripheral joints), electrodiagnostics, and cancer rehabilitation.
She believes in a comprehensive approach to treating musculoskeletal dysfunction, which may include physical therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture, bracing, injection procedures, activity modification, nutritional supplementation and/or medications.
Dr. Franz received her Bachelor of Science and Master of Science Degrees in Physical Therapy from Springfield College. Influenced by the Humanics philosophy during her training, she believes that optimal health stems from a balance of one’s spirit, mind and body. It was during her training to become a physical therapist that she developed a passion for medicine and thus, returned to school to become a medical physician.
Just as the Humanics philosophy was the backbone of her physical therapy training, osteopathy underlined her medical training; these views parallel each other and furthermore, guided her professional and personal development toward a career in medicine. She completed her medical training at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.
She went on to complete a residency in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at New York – Presbyterian Hospital, which included training at Columbia University Medical Center, Weill Cornell Medical Center, Hospital for Special Surgery and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
Her appreciation for the musculoskeletal system ultimately lead her to a fellowship in Interventional Spine, Sports/ Musculoskeletal Medicine and Occupational Medicine at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.
