Sarah Trahan NMD

Staff Physician

Regenerative Medicine, Integrative Pain Management, Medical Aesthetics, Acupuncture, and Chinese Medicine, Botanical Medicine, Nutritional Counseling


Dr. Sarah Trahan is a staff physician at the Neil Riordan Center for Regenerative Medicine. Her primary focus is to improve her patients’ quality of life by helping them to find relief from both acute and chronic pain. She strives to address the root cause of her patients’ concerns and to educate them so that they can make informed decisions about their health.

Dr. Trahan uses her expertise in a wide range of treatment options to provide a well-rounded approach to pain management. She is trained in nutritional counseling, herbal medicine, acupuncture, and regenerative injection therapy. These regenerative therapies include perineural, prolotherapy, platelet-rich plasma, bone marrow aspirate concentrate, and structural amnion/cord derived tissue from live, healthy births. Additional certification as a yoga instructor enables Dr. Trahan to help patients improve their physical strength/flexibility and to benefit from yogic breathing and meditative techniques.

Since how you look and feel in your own skin often affects your mental and physical health, Dr. Trahan addresses patient concerns on a broader and more comprehensive scale. This has led her to broaden her practice to also focus on medical aesthetics and sexual health optimization using dissolvable polydioxanone (PDO) threads and orthobiologics. She focuses on prejuvenation and rejuvenation using a more natural approach compared to Botox, fillers, or surgical facelifts/volumization. Sexual health is intimately interwoven with our overall health and well-being, which is why optimization of sexual organs appearance and function can help individuals live longer and more enjoyable lives.
