About Dr. Ripoll

My Philosophy

Focussing on the root causes of Interstitial Cystitis & Chronic Pelvic Pain and how to treat them, by using an integrative and individualized approach that combines Western & Alternative Medicine

My Vision

From a diverse medical background I created the HOPE Protocol, by combining a wide variety of advanced techniques – both traditional and alternative.  I realized a requirement to help patients discover their root causes and communicate with me beyond my clinic doors, and thus the online iHOPE protocol was created – with over 150 hours of development behind it. iHOPE allows me to provide an in-depth analysis of the root causes of an individual no matter where in the world they are, combining a comprehensive 8-week webinar series with personalized weekly feedback from Dr. Ripoll.

About Me

I have been practicing Urology and Urologic Oncology for over 30 years. I moved from my home in Barcelona, Spain to the United State where I attended the University of Colorado’s School of medicine graduating with honors. I completed my residency and post-doctorate fellowship at the Baylor College of Medicine and took my medical acupuncture training at UCLA.

As an Integrative Urologist I use the power of alternative medicine to help return my patients to health. I am deeply experienced in Acupuncture, Osteopathy, Cranial-Sacral Therapy, Functional Medicine, German Biological Medicine and Spirit Medicine. From this diverse medical background I created the HOPE Protocol. By combining a wide variety of advanced techniques, both traditional and alternative, including Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Stem Cell injections, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, Ozone treatment, Shockwave therapy, and neurotransmitter pathway realignment I am able to fully customize care for each patient and their unique needs.

I am passionate about healing women and men suffering from Chronic Pelvic Pain and Interstitial Cystitis. I am always looking for new, advanced treatments that can change the healing paradigm and return patients to living their fullest lives. I see patients from all over the world due to the unique approach my practice takes to diagnosis and treatment.

I am the co-author of:

I have also written numerous articles for a number of medical journals and I am a lecturer and public speaker.

I believe that medicine should be practiced on an individualized basis and I am committed to returning my patients back to health and helping them thrive.
