About Steve Cavanaugh DO

I first heard of Osteopathic medicine as a premedical student in college. A good friend of mine told me about a medical school nearby where one could become a fully licensed physician with a holistic philosophy and exceptional hands-on diagnosis and treatment skills. It was clear to me almost immediately that this was the type of physician I wanted to become. Why would I spend four years in medical school and not learn to use my hands to help people? What better way to practice medicine than to have a guiding philosophy concerned with the health of the whole person?

I found a D.O. who specialized in Osteopathic Treatment and spent time in his office. I could definitely see that he was helping his patients. It was also impressive that patients came from other states to see him. Since that time I have dedicated my life to the study, art and practice of Osteopathic medicine.

After completing a BA in Biology at University of Dallas (1991-1995), I attended University of North Texas Health Science Center, Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine in Fort Worth Texas (1995-1999). My residency was at Botsford Hospital in Farmington Hills Michigan (1999-2002), where I became Board Certified in Family Practice and Osteopathic Treatment. After this I continued my studies and became certified in Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. I have also obtained a Certificate of Cranial Proficiency from the Cranial Academy.

I opened my practice in Seattle in 2002. My practice has a special focus on treating infants and children, but a significant percentage of my patients are adults as well. People come to me for gentle Osteopathic Treatment and Cranial Osteopathy. There are a variety of conditions I treat which range from difficult or traumatic births, feeding problems of the newborn, recurrent ear infections and sinus conditions to musculoskeletal conditions like low back pain and neck pain.
