A passionate doctor with over 20 years experience, Dr Rudman has taken his experience with the medical and surgical problems that patients face into a new role that focuses on preventing illness and preserving wellness. He has seen excellent doctors make incredible advances in treating diseases with surgery and medicine that were unimaginable 20 years ago; however, our environment continues to challenge our bodies making it more and more difficult for us to fight the negative effects of aging and our environment. Dr. Rudman has joined the growing fight with numerous other physicians to focus on balancing our western medical approach to disease with a heavy concentration on the preservation of wellness and the prevention of illness. As a board certified Anesthesiologist since 1997, Dr. Rudman has has the pleasure of treating thousands of patients across every age group. He has seen first hand the consequences and side effects of conventional medical treatment as well as the implications on the ultimate surgical management of disease processes. Throughout his career he has witnessed the progressive increase in obesity and related diseases that have become the result of the modern day environment in which we live. This issue has not only accelerated to become more common than not, it has also been progressively occurring at a younger average age. This study over the years, has lead Dr. Rudman to the conclusion that there is a missing piece - treating and preserving wellness is something that we as a medical community can be doing better, especially as the outside environmental threats continue to make it more difficult to stay "Well". Dr. Rudman attended Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois for his undergraduate training. Here he completed his pre-medical studies while obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in History. He then continued on to the University of Missouri securing his Doctorate in Medicine before going back to Northwestern University for an advanced residency training in Anesthesiology. Here at Northwestern, Dr. Rudman proudly served as Chief Resident during his final year. After 20 years of leading several successful medical practices, he began to devote his attention toward the board certification process and is now Board Certified in Anti-Aging / Regenerative Medicine with the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M).
