Integrative Medicine That Is Truly Complementary and Functional


Led by Dr. John C. Hughes, D.O., our Colorado family practice Aspen Integrative Medicine treats patients from Aspen, Vail, Denver, Grand Junction, Boulder, and beyond with the latest evidence-based innovations in modern, alternative, and functional medical care.

With locations in Basalt and Aspen, Colorado, our physician-supervised clinic specializes in keeping patients healthy with natural treatments whenever possible. We often administer alternative medicine such as stem cell therapy and prolozone therapy to reduce their pain without resorting to surgery or long-term medications.

Using these sophisticated, ultrasound-guided proliferative and regenerative injections in tandem with osteopathic manipulation and nutritional supplements, Dr. Hughes employs an integrative medical approach to treat patients at the source of their pain.

Along with treating chronic pain from arthritis, bone spurs and herniated discs, Dr. Hughes also treats major medical problems, including high blood pressure, obesity, altitude sickness, sports injuries, back pain, knee sprains, headaches, arthritis, and chronic fatigue.

Looking forward, we guide patients in disease prevention with functional medicine focused on diet, exercise, mindfulness, and the natural environment.
