Meet the Team
Dr. Warren J. Bleiweiss
A distinguished physician, Dr. Warren J. Bleiweiss has triple medical board certifications from the American Academy of Stem Cell Physicians, American Board of Anesthesiology, and American Board of Pain Medicine. He is also a Fellow of the American Academy of Stem Cell Physicians.
Dr. Bleiweiss who provides innovative regenerative medicine treatments at Alternative Disc Therapy in Caldwell, New Jersey, is a national leader in the use of ozone injection treatments for herniated discs, joint and muscle pain, and injuries. He pioneered the outpatient oxygen-ozone disc injection procedure in the United States and remains a leading expert in North America in treating disc herniations with ozone injections without surgery or medication.
Dr. Bleiweiss routinely performs safe and effective ozone disc procedures to provide patients with long-lasting, positive outcomes. He has long believed in the body’s innate ability to heal itself naturally. Given this, he emphasizes on face-to-face diagnoses and nonsurgical alternative methods to heal patients without surgery or medications. His approach is to address the root cause of each patient’s conditions and customize a specific regenerative treatment tailored to their specific needs.
In addition, Dr. Bleiweiss firmly believes that true healing happens at the cellular level and true prevention is also based on cellular health. Therefore, he also focuses on boosting his patients’ immune system and performs upstream anti-aging treatments for cellular health and overall well-being.
After graduating from New York University School of Medicine (NYU), Dr. Bleiweiss completed an internship in internal medicine at NYU Medical Center, a residency in the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, in New York City, and two fellowships at both the University of Virginia Medical Center and Albert Einstein College of Medicine-Montefiore Medical Center.
As a part of his practice, Dr. Bleiweiss remains actively involved in research in regenerative medicine and stays up-to-date with current medical literature. He is a member of several medical organizationns, including the American Academy of Stem Cell Physicians.
