Get to know Physiatrist Dr. Ugochi Azuike, who serves patients in Sugar Land, Texas.

A well-versed specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation, Dr. Azuike is the Chief Executive Officer & Owner of Sugar Land Interventional Orthopedics and Regenerative Medicine in Sugar Land, Texas.

Prior to her current endeavours, she served as an attending physician at Texas Interventional Orthopedics and Regenerative Medicine (August 2019 – July 2021), and as an attending physician at Centeno-Schultz Clinic (July 2017 – July 2019).

A native of Houston, Texas with Nigerian roots, Dr. Azuike graduated with her Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology from The University of Texas at Austin in 2008. She then went on to earn her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree from the University of North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth in 2013. 

Osteopathic training best-aligned with her beliefs of a multimodal, pan-systemic, and more holistic approach to treatment. She received hundreds of hours of training in osteopathic manipulation of the body; a treatment modality that promotes the body’s natural ability to self-regulate and self-heal. Dr. Azuike was drawn to these aspects of medicine because of the focus on the restoration of body function in order to improve the quality of life as a whole. Her training, leadership positions, and medical interests translated into a physical medicine and rehabilitation residency position at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. 

Baylor expanded and honed her skill set in musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, and sports and spine rehabilitation/treatments. This new set of tools ignited a desire to expand upon and broaden her skill set in the field of not only musculoskeletal and neuromuscular medicine but also regenerative medicine. Dr. Azuike was the first and only female physician to complete an interventional orthopedic and regenerative medicine fellowship at the Centeno Schultz Clinic. There, she gained extensive training in advanced interventional injection techniques for the spine, muscles, and peripheral joints using orthobiologics such as stem cells, PRP, and prolotherapy. 

Focusing on patients’ ability to function, she is board-certified in physical medicine & rehabilitation by the American Osteopathic Board of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (AOBPMR). The AOBPMR is an organization that provides board certification to qualified Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine who specialize in the treatment of patients with physical impairments or disabilities.

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, also known as Physiatry, is a branch of medicine that aims to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life to those with physical impairments or disabilities. Physiatrists treat a wide variety of medical conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons.
