LeAnn VanDuyn, FNP-C
I have extensive experience as Trauma RN in Emergency Department and ICU for more than 20 years. I was born and raised in Illinois near Chicago. I worked in level one trauma centers around the suburbs of Chicago until moving to Arizona. My family and I moved here a little over 10 years ago where I continued to work as a Trauma RN in the Emergency Departments of Banner Health Systems. I earned my Bachelors of Science Degree in Nursing, in 2012, from Grand Canyon University. I continued my education and earned my Master’s Degree in Nursing, in 2015, with a specialty in Family Medicine. I am board certified with American Association of Nurse Practitioners and have been practicing as a Family Nurse Practitioner for more than three years. My passion is educating and helping patients find a life they can enjoy.
As humans we want to feel our best and to be as healthy as possible. With all the information available to you- it can be hard to determine good information from bad information which can make it difficult to achieve your goal. Friends and family offer their opinion on how you should do things and what they believe is or is not healthy. Unfortunately, it is not always that easy because everyone is completely different. What works for someone else may not work for you. There are so many aspects that make a person unique such as genetics, experiences, and overall health.
I know that there is no single approach that fits each individual but together we can find your optimal self that feels the best each and every day for you. We will approach your healthcare as a collaborative effort and find what works for your unique self.
I am excited to be starting a new journey with Absolute Rehabilitation and Pain Medicine. Together, we are bringing wellness care and several new services to help aid patients discover their better self. We have a vision to empower patients to feel their healthiest and be as active as they want to be. With our current team we look forward to helping patients balance mind, body, and life. So come on in and let us help you on your wellness journey to optimal health so you can live the life you were always meant live.
As a physician, I have practiced both, private practice and hospital setting. My background also includes three postdoctoral fellowships; in which I contributed to several clinical and research projects.
I have extensive experience in diagnosing and management of patient symptoms, however, the real challenge of obtaining knowledge that actually can improve and reverse sickness into wellness is the undeniable science of medicine in this century.
The promising field of regenerative medicine is working to restore structure and function of damaged tissues and organs. Regenerative Medicine using stem cell is a distinct system of health care, the trilogy of art, science, and philosophy into practical treatment and cure of illness.
I have dedicated myself to the medical profession. I have conducted research in my field and educated myself to the highest degree.
I have certification in Regenerative Cell Therapy and Functional Medicine. The field of practice is vast with stem cell. I use stem cell for pain management, arthritis and sports injuries. I also use stem cell for aesthetics, such as skin rejuvenation, hair loss and sexual enhancement.
With excellent knowledge and experience in the field of regenerative medicine, combined with a holistic approach, I have been able to accomplish very high success rates in the treatment choices for my patients as I am sure regenerative cell therapy will provide fantastic results for years to come.
