Dr. Fetzer joined Joint Implant Surgeons of Florida in September 2019. She comes to us with over 15 years of experience, serving as the primary non-operative Interventional Physiatrist at Midwest Orthopedics @ RUSH (ranked top 10 in Orthopedics by U.S. News & World Report). There, she enjoyed a thriving practice that included non-operative spine intervention for adults, including the Chicago White Sox, the Chicago Bulls, DePaul University and the Joffrey Ballet.
Dr. Fetzer specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of neuro-musculoskeletal disorders with special training in nonsurgical care of neck and back pain. Specifically, she performs fluoroscopic guided spine injections, trigger point injections in the management of myofascial pain, joint and soft tissue injections of the upper and lower extremities as well as electromyography and nerve conduction studies.
Dr. Fetzer combines her expertise of rehabilitation, interventional spine treatment regimens and pain medicine to comprehensively treat the patient.
