Jon Vivolo, DO


Dr. Jon Vivolo DO was born and raised in Colorado and spent most of his youth here in Durango. He earned his undergraduate degree at Colorado State University in Health and Exercise Science with a focus on Sports Medicine and Nutrition in addition to Biomedical Sciences. During his undergraduate years he raced mountain bikes, winning the national championship and ultimately racing professionally. After an injury, he followed his passion for human physiology, sports performance, and community health optimization and completed his medical school training in Denver, Colorado at Rocky Vista University. In addition to his doctorate, he pursued an honors tract in rural and wilderness medicine prior to his emergency medicine residency training in Lexington, Kentucky. Following residency, he finished a fellowship in emergency ultrasonography at the University of Utah, focusing on ultrasound guided regional anesthesia and peri-arrest transesophageal echocardiogram for ECMO cannulation. He went on to practice in Salt Lake City at Intermountain Medical Center and helped train residents prior to moving back home to Durango. Through his practice in the emergency room, he saw firsthand the limitations of our current medical system in offering preventative, individualized, holistic medicine, which inspired him to complete an additional fellowship in genomics-based precision medicine. 

 

Jon has a passion for embracing our bodies' amazing innate ability to heal if given the proper support and environment. He believes we can live healthier, happier, and higher quality lives by optimizing overall wellness and targeting disease prevention via western medicine combined with a holistic approach. He offers an integrative and functional approach by providing a framework by which to educate, listen, and empower his patients by addressing the root cause of symptoms and disease. 

 

When Jon is not working, he is most likely adventuring in the mountains by foot, bike, or skis. He also enjoys carpentry, travel, and spending time with his wife, 3 border collies, chickens, and bees. He looks forward to assisting you in your specific goals towards achieving overall wellness
