Dr. Kerge spent most of her medical training in Washington, DC and Richmond, VA, but is a Northern Virginia native. As far back as she can remember, Dr. Kerge was interested in the field of medicine and majored in Honors Biology at George Mason University in pursuit of this goal. She received her Master of Science in Physiology and Biophysics and well as her Medical Degree from Georgetown University. It was during her training at Georgetown that Dr. Kerge’s now husband underwent a life altering surgery for a musculoskeletal injury. This experience helped shape her interest in the field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, which is strongly rooted in improving a patient’s quality of life.
After completing an internship at INOVA Fairfax Hospital, she received her residency training in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Virginia Commonwealth University, where she distinguished herself as author of an article in the journal Practical Pain Management, Regional Editor for the Rehab in Review Newsletter, author of several clinical protocols, and part of the planning committee for VCU’s Annual Pain Management & Spine Symposium. Dr. Kerge remained at VCU to complete a fellowship in Interventional Pain Management, where she received advanced training in the diagnosis and management of acute and chronic pain through non-surgical techniques and neuromodulation. Dr. Kerge is Board Certified in both Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation as well as Pain Medicine.
