"At the end of 2017 it became clear to me that my only option to have pain free knees was to have them replaced. I did not get there all at once. I had a multi-year downward spiral of knee pain, reduced activity, weight gain, more pain, even less activity, and so on and so on. I realized I wasn’t going to get better all at once. I needed to spiral up now. I wanted to own this journey not simply throw myself into the complicated healthcare world and have stuff done to me. And it paid off...I’ve turned the corner."

A Note from Dr. Wilder


Too often, our medical system treats us as passive victims by throwing therapies at symptoms without addressing the roots of our ills. Meanwhile, our culture of perpetual busy-ness encourages lifestyle choices that devastate our well-being.

Ultimately, we fail to treasure health until it fails us.

They say, ”A healthy person has a thousand wishes, a sick person only one.”

Our mission is to support you with tools and strategies to inspire and empower health transformation. We put you in the control seat with wisdom and guidance to help you along the path to achieving your optimal state of vitality. At no time is this more important than when preparing for pregnancy or surgery, arguably the biggest athletic events of human life.

I never take a test without studying or run a race without training. I learned the hard way to never undergo surgery without preparing.

The great news is, you have more control over your health outcomes than you think. If you really engage, your health benefits are likely to persist well beyond surgery, hopefully for a lifetime. I hear from people every day who report amazing improvements in their health from following the simple strategies outlined in this program including resolved arthritis, autoimmune, diabetes, or digestive disorders to improved mood, energy, and memory.

Please don’t be a passive victim. You have tremendous control over your health. Harness it by investing in my Preparing for Surgery Program for yourself or a loved one today.

Yours in health,

Susan S. Wilder, MD, IFMCP
