Binyamin Rothstein is an Osteopathic physician from Baltimore, Maryland, where he ran a successful family practice for many years. He trained at the Des Moines University College of Osteopathic Medicine and did his internship at Hillcrest General Hospital in New York.
His started his first private practice in Brooklyn in 1982 but gave it up when he entered the United States Army. He served for three years as an Army physician at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases at Fort Detrick, Maryland and was discharged in June of 1986.
A few months later he opened his solo private practice in Baltimore, where he emphasized Osteopathic manipulation. Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, or OMT, is the use of the hands to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness or injury, which Dr. Rothstein first observed as an undergraduate at the University of Maryland. “I was shocked,” he said, recalling his first encounter with an osteopath. “I said, you can really heal people without drugs and surgery? It just blew my mind.”
In spite of OMT and its success, he felt he could do more. “Too many of my patients just did not get well, and stay well,” he says. “So I began looking into other areas that made the treatments work better. That means nutrition, and vitamins, and perhaps dietary changes, and exercise.”
Throughout, Binyamin Rothstein has remained dedicated to medicine, and takes great pride in his many successful patient outcomes. Since 2012 he has practiced in Israel, but as of June 2016 is returning to the United States to resume his American practice, this time in Philadelphia.
