David B. Phillips, MD, Ph.D., the inventor of the ReBuilder® Treatment System for Neuropathy.
The ReBuilder® is another in a series of medical products from the brilliant mind of David B. Phillips, MD, Ph.D. Even more, Dr. Phillips is an internationally recognized, award winning, medical device inventor!
He invents medical devices to solve medical issues that his own family has needed. They have to work!
You have probably seen or used his infrared ear thermometer that takes your temperature in less than one second that he developed to avoid using the mercury in glass thermometers when his 4 children were young. Dr. Phillips received the “Inventor of the Year” for that in 1987. He invented the GST System for the earlier detection of breast cancer. In 1975, his wife developed a lump in her breast and the GST System was proven by Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York to be 94% effective.
The ReBuilder, consequently – is proudly made in the USA!
He invented a cure for Molluscum Contagiosum in 2008 using iontophoresis when his 4 year old granddaughter contracted the disease.
Additionally, he developed the Healing Pen in 2010 to heal the lesions from acne, insect bites and poison ivy when his children were in their teens and pimples were a problem. Dr. Phillips invented the ReBuilder for his father who developed peripheral neuropathy. Dr. Phillips is now working on a device to make drawing blood easy and painless with only one stick because his 2 year old grandson suffered when they tried 7 times to get an IV line started.
Note from ReBuilder Medical’s Founder
Dr. David B. Phillips
Hello. You see, I am a medical device inventor. I invented the GST Breast Cancer Detection System in 1976 when my then 30 year old wife developed a lump in her breast. Fortunately, it turned out not to be cancer.
“After becoming a father to our four children, I invented the world’s first infrared ear thermometer (First Temp, 1985) in response to my concern with the dangerous level of mercury used in the common glass thermometers and the danger of breaking it inside the rectum.” I again said “There has to be a better way!” So, I created the infrared ear thermometer, a modality used throughout the world. Chances are, you probably have one of these thermometers in your home!
When my dad’s discomfort began to affect his quality of life, I felt a similar need to find a solution to his condition. The result of my research into resolving my father’s painful neuropathy, is the ReBuilder®. ReBuilder® relieved my Fathers neuropathy until he passed away recently from Alzheimer’s. Even more, he lived a fully active life and worked every day in our quality control department.”

That simple process was the genesis of ReBuilder Medical, Phillips’ Charles Town-based medical device company. Just as he’d invented the GST Breast Cancer Detection System as a response to his wife’s brush with mortality, Phillips took a family member’s pain personally.
The result was The ReBuilder®. Phillips’ grandfather was suffering from neuropathy, a painful condition caused by nerve damage. Using the same combination of intuition, an epiphany and a hot shower, Phillips devised The ReBuilder®. Rather than treating the symptoms of neuropathy with addictive drugs, the side effects of which can often be worse than the pain itself, Phillips sought to cure neuropathy itself.
“The ReBuilder® wakes up sleeping nerves by sending a healthy nerve signal throughout a nerve path and, in real time, adjusts itself to the patient’s individual electrical parameters,” Phillips says. “It improves local blood flow and also relaxes the patient so he can sleep at night without drugs.”
