Welcome to Osteopathic Healthcare of Maine.
Our practice was established in 1990 by Dr. Hankinson and now includes Dr. Wu, Dr. Gilson, Dr. Hilton, and Dr. Barrett. Our mission is to continue the work of Andrew Taylor Still, MD, the father of Osteopathy. Dr. Still’s revolutionary statement that physicians should devote themselves to caring for a person’s Health uncovered a truth that has provided a guiding principle for the Osteopathic profession. Moreover, it has been essential in the Osteopath’s efforts to improve the Health Care options available to those in need.
The physicians of Osteopathic Healthcare of Maine are dedicated to applying this principle in the care of our patients. We are all board certified in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine and our practice is primarily devoted to consultations for this type of care. We use the full range of Osteopathic modalities, with an emphasis on Cranial Osteopathy and Biodynamics. Our practice welcomes patients of all ages and provides Osteopathic care for the full spectrum of their healthcare concerns.
