Dr. Akinwande (Dr.A)
Dr. Akinwande was born in New York and lived around the world including in the United Kingdom, Nigeria and Togo.
After college, he decided to go to medical school because we was inspired to help people after watching a christian ministry show where plastic surgeons went to poor countries to treat patients with cleft palate. During medical school, he excelled in all facets, including scoring in the 90th percentile in the United States Medical License examination I and II and graduating with highest honors (top 5 in his graduating class).
Dr. Akinwande entered a highly competitive radiology residency at the University of Louisville Hospital in Kentucky. Following residency, he was accepted for a fellowship at the prestigious University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (a US news honor roll top 15 hospital). After his fellowship, he got accepted to a research and clinical fellowship at the prestigious Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore (a US news top 3 hospital). During his time at Hopkins, he received a competitive National Institute of Health research grant and he worked investigating a novel minimally invasive technique to treat obesity (AKA bariatric embolization).
After his fellowship, he was recruited to join the faculty at Washington university/Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis. He has since published over 100 abstracts, manuscripts and book chapters and has been identified as one of the rising stars by the biggest names in Interventional Radiology. He has presented his research nationally and internationally and currently holds a patent for a medical device.
Dr. Akinwande is the founder and medical director of the Midwest Institute for Non-Surgical Therapy (MINT). His practice mission is simple; to educate and provide minimally invasive non-surgical treatment to the local population in St.Louis, MO. He believes that patients should take advantage of non-surgical, scientifically proven methods to treat various conditions. He intends to make these treatments more accessible and affordable to everyone. All treatments are performed in an outpatient facility and patients go home the same day.
