Advance Research.


Letter from the Chairman

Napa Medical Research Foundation’s objective is to support research which pioneers new or improved methodologies in regenerative medicine, ultrasound visualization and minimally invasive procedures to solve common orthopedic problems alleviating the necessity of invasive surgery. These leading edge medical procedures are made available to Napa Valley residents through the Bodor Clinic and published in the top medical journals for use by the wider world. Within its field of expertise, the Foundation also provides community support services, such as our Vineyard Worker Health Program. 

The Foundation came into existence in 2014 to help underwrite the medical research work of Dr. Marko Bodor as he sought to find better, less invasive ways to approach problems of the spine, joints, nerves, tendons and ligaments. Over the years, the breadth of the Foundation’s capabilities has expanded to include not only patient studies, but also research in our state of the art laboratory, where orthobiological investigations are conducted on a molecular level. Research studies are overseen by the Board of Director’s Research Oversight Committee, comprised of highly acclaimed physicians representing orthopedic and other medical specialties. Under the leadership of Dr. Bodor, the Foundation has developed new or improved medical procedures using ultrasound, platelet rich plasma and stem cells. 

The vision of the Board of Directors is to continue strengthening the Foundation’s position as a center for regenerative orthopedic research, leading to more discoveries which improve patient experiences and quality of life. This vision can only be achieved by the continued and growing support of our donors, whose support is highly appreciated. Current research studies and research publications can be viewed on the website. For more information please  send us an email at or call 707-492-0313.
