Dr. Richard S. Schaffer, JR. M.D.
Board Certified Since 1998
Dr. Schaffer is very excited to be a part of the QC Kinetix clinic. His interest in sports medicine began back during his residency in the late 1990s when he served as a volunteer high school football team physician. Throughout his career he has been fortunate to see many advancements in non surgical pain management for sports medicine and for treating degenerative conditions like osteoarthritis. Unlike conventional steroid injections, these advanced natural cell therapies have shown great promise in helping to relieve joint pain and improve overall function related to both musculoskeletal injuries and degeneration.
Dr. Schaffer completed his residency in Family Medicine at The Carilion Clinic in Roanoke, Virginia in 1998. During his last year in residency, he served as the Chief Resident of Education and was awarded the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine Outstanding Resident Teacher Award. He obtained his Doctor of Medicine degree at The University of Texas Medical Branch in 1995.
Having spent over 20 years in Virginia and the Carolinas since finishing his residency, Dr. Schaffer has very strong ties to the area. He thoroughly enjoys hiking, zip lining, and many other outdoor activities. He is very proud to be working with such a high quality, experienced clinician like Tyler and he looks forward to bringing advanced regenerative cell therapy injections to the Carolinas and beyond.
